Who is gonna take this chance with a possible 100 game ban?

Theyve already announced that players who were recently suspended for PED's would be considered to have already served their time. Melky, Colon, and Grandal are all likely safe.

Let's now see if he can just toss a complete game.
3way trade with Boston white Sox and tigers. Peavy going to Boston
Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal)
Exec's speculation: Peavy to BOS, Iglesias to DET (to cover for Peralta suspension) and A. Garcia to CWS. Just speculation at this time.

Thank god
Sounds like Cliff Lee wil be staying in Philly then, for now.
A's get Callaspo from the Angels for prospect Grant Green. Callaspo can play multiple positions.
Reports saying most if not all those connected to biogenesis will accept the 50 game suspension except for ARod. Lol

He's such a douche. Hope he gets a lifetime ban.
Peavy trade went down. Boston gets him, Detroit gets Julio Iglesias and White Sox get Avasail Garvia and prospects.

Crazy trade.

He probably just figures hes done anyways, and refuses to admit to anything. Between this and Pujols looking like hes 50 years old, it looks like 762 is going to stand for a really long time.

Im all for the asterisks, as long as its across the board.

Put them on every pitcher who ever doctored a ball, and every player who used greenies, caffeine pills, cocaine, etc.

Players who played in the era before blacks, hispanics, and asians were allowed to play. Plus theres the pitchers who used to throw off a higher mound.

What about the Babe Ruth era, where he was facing 20 year olds who got off their factory job to come pitch both ends of a double header?

What about the guys from the era when ground rule doubles used to be counted as HR?

Even just the fact that Hank Aaron played his entire career in bandbox home stadiums, and Willie Mays played his in pitchers parks. Baseball itself isnt fair, or on a level playing field.

Unless baseball can provide actual proof of who used PED's and who didnt, and from what years, theres no way they can responsibly put asterisks on anything.

Im not so naive that I wont admit that Bonds was using PED's, but everyone acts like he was one of only 5-7 players who did so. Baseball was fine with PED's restoring the game from the 1994 strike, but then turned around and shunned all the guys who were involved after the fans got upset about it. Bunch of hypocrites.

The funny thing is, Bonds never once tested positive for any banned substance. What he was taking was performance enhancing, but baseball didnt see it fit to ban at the time, so technically he never did anything against the rules. He's only a villain now because the media is paying him back for being a douche to them for 20+ years.

most of the stuff you listed wasn't illegal or wrong. Not his fault there wasn't minorities when they played. I agree that it made it easier, which is why I think guys like Mays were the best ever and not him. But there should not be an asterik for it. Generally I agree with your statement, but I think they just need to find a way to label it as the "steroid era", even though not all took them.
