    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    I seriously don't buy this "I didnt know what was in it excuse..." Seriously, players need to make an effort to check everything they put in their body and or atleast document it.
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    I'd take him off the DL now then, or as soon as the 30 days are up if he's already on that list.

    Exactly, and F**k Cano.

    He deserves every second, every minute of that suspension.

    Both Michael Young and Verlander should shut up. Verlander should more Flonase, stuffing his nose with it.

    For the record, the first part of this post is a matter of public record. The part of it possibly being a factor in the Cano negotiations is speculation on my part.
    IIRC, his personal assistant was on the mailing list. Go figure.

    Sure it has medical uses, like in congestive heart failure and/or kidney failure or for ascites from cirrhosis of the liver. Arent all 35 year old athletes taking this for valid medical reasons?

    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    Hmm, so if I understand right ... Cano tested positive before the season began, but this wasn't made public because he appealed. So now that he's facing a long DL stint with the broken finger ... he drops the appeal? So he can subtract the games on the DL from the total number he would have missed with the DL plus the suspension? And he must have known all along he wouldn't win the appeal, or why drop it?

    Somehow, this makes it all the worse for me.

    That's not really related to his suspension though - ineligibility for the playoffs comes with all Mariners' contracts.

    Oooooh, that's cold, lol. I do believe they have the longest non-playoff streak in MLB.

    Wallace Matthews:Robinson Cano's Suspension Clinches It: Yankees Were Right To Let Him Walk

    The substance Cano tested positive for is technically not a performance-enhancing drug, but a diuretic used mainly on racehorses to prevent lung hemorrhages and bleeding from the nostrils during a race. In human beings, it is used to treat ailments such as congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver and pulmonary edema, none of which are likely present in the body of an athlete performing at the level of Robinson Cano.

    And assuming he was not planning to run in the Preakness Stakes this weekend, there is probably only one reason Cano would choose to use Lasix: to mask the presence of a performance-enhancing drug.

    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    I found Teixeira's comments interesting on a couple of levels. First, they suggest another reason why not signing Cano to the ridiculous contract given by the desperate Mariners team was smart. The Yankee FO had very good reason to suspect, if not know about this. (The mistake was then signing Ellsbury, whose decline suggests he did not use the stuff, to his own ridiculous contract.)

    Second, it confirms my view that players and observant others, including journalists, often know and certainly knew in the McGwire-Sosa-Bonds peak period. (I won't mention the others, including several in the HOF, for whom it is obvious even to an outsider.) This highlights the hypocrisy in these HOF votes keeping greats like Bonds and Clemens and eventually probably Alex, out.

    In my view, guys like Cano who are caught at this point, ought to be suspended for a year and then banned the second time. I think the MLBPA will eventually accept penalties at this level. But it should be as irrelevant to the HOF as the grease balling that remains rampant.

    Finally, I agree that Verlander is a hypocrite.

    Good thing Tex didn't drive the team bus. He would thrown a few teammates under it and drove back and forth.

    We want these former players turned analysts to be forthcoming with their opinions and when they say something that we don't like then we hate them. We as fans, can't have it both ways.
