A’s Colon Not Among 13 Players Punished In Biogenesis Scandal

GameDay: Braun’s Admission Won’t Change PED Problem

Lawyers draw up a statement and carefully avoid any mention of steroids. That’s the way it’s done so the “words” won’t come back to bite the cheaters in the rear end. Bruan, naturally, is being vilified because of his vehement denial last year when he walked because of a technicality. (Memo to the tester: Don’t store Bruan’s pee in your home fridge) His lawyers smartly worked out a plea deal with MLB that won’t extend to 150 games, thus saving him $4.5 million into next season.

Melky Cabrera wants everyone to know just how sorry he is. Sorry for cheating, sorry for lying, sorry for letting down the San Francisco Giants and their supportive city.
