It's good to be a Marlins fan.

Too bad they didn't structure his contact in reverse.

You forgot to put unpaid vacation.

This actually kind of surprises me - usually it isn't guys who are slap hitters/speed guys. Then again he was a bust-looking player until he broke out two years ago a la Colabello so...

There's still something I wonder about with all this steroid testing. Can guys actually get away with it for 2 years? I don't know how often (or if they're tested at all) in the off-season, I also don't know how long any high tech Peds stay in their system. But if there are players who are juicing and getting away with it for 2 years, still, then that's not cool. I know there used to be guys who'd get away with it by taking the latest designer drugs, I don't know where the current advantage lies and if players can still get away with it.

The old saying is that the cheaters are usually ahead of the testers but for one of the few times in history it seems as if the testers have caught up to everything the cheaters have done.

Ouch for them.

Also apparently this came out in March, so the appeal process took over a month or so.

That's the thing. They really did. And the only drawback for him from the use is this suspension. But all will be forgotten after when he comes back and still makes the money he made from doing the steroids. Makes no sense.

What part of it doesn't make sense?
