You gotta love rumors


The Epic

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen.

I also wouldnt be surprised to see this get covered up to avoid the Yankees collapsing and being eliminated early in the playoffs.

Sorry to burst your bubble.

A Major League Baseball official with knowledge of the league's drug testing confirmed that New York Yankees All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano did not test positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

The official spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because MLB is not allowed to comment on test results.Cano vehemently denied Thursday night that he was about to be assessed a 50-game suspension, a report that originally surfaced on Twitter.

    • The orioles will probably have around 38 guys on the 40 man by the rule 5 draft. If you’re taking more guys off of it then you need to put more players on. There aren’t that many options to add that I see a situation where bubble guys like Zimmerman are left off and bubble guys like Handley aren’t added. 
    • The MLB Pipeline podcast yesterday (either Callis or Jason Ratliff) said it was the longest HR he's seen hit at the Scottsdale Stadium.
    • I think he's a guy who protect if you have a spot, but if you need one for a better player, then I'd be ok with him being dropped off. There's a lot more guys who can go before him. His .317 wOBA (10th best on the team) is just a little over major league average of .310 and that was after a pretty bad second half where as Frobby pointed out, he may have just worn down.  He's a decent 6th inning guy or the guy you bring in for two when you are up or down by 3 or more. If you can find something better then he can be replaced, but he's not a guy I'd focus on getting rid of this season. There have been flashes a brilliance with, but he's coming up on 30-years old which again, makes him a low end bubble guy for me.
    • I'd sign them both next year. Goal needs to be something like 10 more years with Gunnar. 7-8 with Adley. Give or take. But there'd be no doubt they are cornerstones if I was the owner.
    • If we had a 23 year old 1B prospect in AAA who put up an .860 OP with 27 homers and 106 RBI,  would you be ok with giving him a chance?
    • If Diaz is not DFA'd I'd be shocked. I suppose he could be a throw in player in some deal, but if he's on the 40-man roster when the Rule 5 draft occurs I'll be shocked. He's a guy who can't stay healthy and probably needs a change of scenery and even then, the hit tool have not improved and he still has very little plan at the plate.
    • Boy did Severino not come close to that 205 innings mark very often! lol True Roberts has improved a bit with his receiving and i have no idea how either of them frame balls though from watching, seems like Handley is pretty good and stealing strikes though AA umpires can be wildly inconsistent so that's tough to judge. Either way, as I showed, Handley bat should play better overall.  For me, Handley is 40 level prospect while Roberts is a 35.
