Ramon Laureano suspended 80 games

SDS

Tested positive for Nandrolone. Let's play an over/under game here. Out of all the current big league players, 30% is juicing. I'm saying over.

Big bummer there. Need a replacement for Laureano now.

SDS

No way it’s more than 30%, I’d bet it’s closer to 30 than 30%. How many suspensions have there been? Less than half a dozen this year?

5% or less right now imo, most of the guys who did it were 90s and early 00s and don’t play anymore

That's because there are doctors out there who earn a killing to mask the use of PEDs. It's a cat and mouse game, always has been. All that money will buy the best doctors and top tier knowledge. I honestly believe it's much much bigger than we think. Not just in MLB, also in the NFL for example.

Every professional athlete feels the need to get an edge. They rationalize by convincing themselves it's like an arms race. The other guy is doing it so....

I believe there has always been, is now, and will always be pro athletes intentionally operating outside the lines of fair play and moral principles.

I would say 30% or over would be my guess as well.

Can we retroactively give his POTM diamond to someone else?

True, the agencies are always playing catch up

As an Astros fan, I'm loving some of the poetic justice here. He ran his mouth quite a bit.

And while we're on irony, Marte was traded for as Oakland knew they were going to have a problem. And oh yeah, Marte knows all about this topic...

It’s not that much more than we think, there’s probably a few more but it’s probably less than 50 guys if I had to guess

You're young and probably still a little naive Kieran. Nothing wrong with that of course, but you probably haven't had the life experience yet where you learn that people will do MANY things to secure a pay check or excel in a very strong competitive environment.

This is true. BTW I strongly recommend everyone here to watch the documentary "Juiced" on Netflix. Not only does it explain how they are doing it but it's hysterical as well.

NO! Says MLB. Astros only. They are gonna carry the weight of anything cheating related. Documents will remain sealed and all other speculation swept under the rug, especially when it comes to the biggest market teams that have been around for over a hundred years. It hurts the game.

Isn't it called Screwball? But yeah, great documentary that was for sure and sheds a light on how big the issue really is.

Fly the Cardinal avatar like your alter-ego..Doc. No Brewers fan would have compassion for what McGuire did while a Cardinal. Only Cardinal fans would. Ya just keep proving you're all over the place with an entire stable of identities.

And, likely, took you no little bit of time and effort to roll 'em all out. A for effort. Pretty cool actually. Gives me a new pastime "Where's Doc". Take off on Where's Waldo BTW.

Yes! My bad, screwball is the name of the documentary on Netflix. One of the best real life/dark comedy documentaries ever made!

This just gave my Jays an even better shot at making the playoffs.

BTW, I secured tickets in Toronto when they host the A’s in September. 2 years without any games in Toronto. I’m going to the Friday night and Saturday afternoon games. Can’t wait!!!
