    I am no fan of A Rod, however he was a very gifted player. Imo he didn't need roids. It was all about ego, staying ahead of the pack. We will never know for certain.

    I imagine you could say the same regarding many of the players of the era. There will always be suspicion and speculation.

    He'd still have easily hit 35 and had the same average.

    And yes, he could have still won MVP. Unless you think a GG, SS who bats over 300, and hits 35-40 HR isn't deserving.
    Maybe that's why Correa has never won even one. He's never hit over 30 HR and only. batted over 300 one time

    I am a believer of 15-20% regarding HRs and roids. Subtract that and that's probably about right. 20% of 50 is 10. SO his 50+ years, he'd have been around 40. Roids don't help you hit it. They help hit it harder

    Concerned? No... the Yanks already wrecked any chance of playoff success next year... when they signed Aaron Boone to an extention.. so why bother worrying about players... he'll just "Rest" them for the most important game anyway... won't matter who they sign Boone will bench them for 2 games/week anyway...

    Yet you want a guy who flat out cheated using electronic signals? A guy who has "Arod Talent", still couldn't have better numbers than Arod when he knew the pitches coming? Correa just hasn't put it together. Lol. Even when he had the answers to the test, he still was nowhere near ARod.

    Because you want to say Arod used earlier? Ok. Correa was cheating for longer. and still has never hit 30 and only hit over 300, 1 time.

    Yes it is. But how many players hit at or below the Mendoza line this past season. Being clean might also mean REAL batting averages.

    Separate questions:
    --Can we see trades during the lockout?
    --Can there be handshake agreements with FA's during the lockout not announced until after the CBA is reached?

    Yes they can make trades during the lockout.

    While im sure handshake deals will happen the MLB seems to care much more about those than they do the samething in IFA.

    BTW, i believe u asked a while ago about how the Yanks have deals in place with IFAs so early like they did with Arias. Because the deadline changed from July 2 to sometime in January due to covid, delayed signings in the next 2 groups. Arias is already 17 and would have signed last yr. The kid from Cuba that they have an agreement with for next yr, his name escapes me at the moment, would have been signed July 22. I am under the impression that because of the yr delay the MLB is being more lenient because off that.

    Thanks for remembering dayners. I appreciate it. Let us know if you hear anything interesting from your Yankee contact.

    So apprentlu i was wrong, the owners voted for a complete frieae of all transactions involving players on the 40 man roster. So specs can be traded for specs but obviously since u can't do anything regarding the 40 man
