    What is it with Yankees and PED's?

    Why does it seem that every time there is some type of PED scandal there are Yankees and former yankees involved?

    I laughed when the yankee conspiracy nuts said that there were no Red Sox on the Mitchell report because he was a Red Sox fan but it seems to be happening over and over.

    Is it possible it is a reflection of media attention? That there are actually a lot more PED users but the only reason that a lot of yankees and former yankees seem to be involved is that is only considered newsworthy in New York? or is there something in the yankee minor league culture that used to condoned PED use?

    Theoretically only one out of every thirty players suspected of PED use should come from the yankees system. It seems much higher than that.

    I don't know if it's a coincidence but Arod was using PED's long before he became a yankee. We didn't hear about it though until he became one.

    The yankees sign a lot of big name free agents. It seems in the PED era many of those big name free agents may have used PEDs. Cervelli seems to be the first minor leaguer to have come up in my recent memory, so not sure their minor league culture perpetuates this. Granted Melky was also a Yankees farm product but I would associate his PED use to his Arod connection.

    These guys all saw what PEDs did for maguire, sosa and bonds. It's going to take a generation of heavy policing and regulating to change the mind set. I think you are starting to see the worm turn on this issue. The real question will be how known PED users are treated in terms of contract. If the only penalty they suffer is a 50 game suspension but are rewarded with massive multi year deals? Nothing will change.

    Just cut the head off the snake (Alex Rodriguez) of Ped use/abuse/rumors and ban him entirely from the game already, than baseball in general won't have such a black eye. Yankee or not, he seems to be the one constant link every time a new report comes out.

    In all likely hood he'll admit it again, call himself an addict and simply get a slap on the hand because he has a "disease" like they say in rehab center's.

    I'm not going to defend A-Rod here because I don't know the whole story, but can we please keep the snake's head on until we actually do know the real story and whether these reports are worth the notebooks they're scribbled in?
