    Default Robinson Cano - PED Suspension - 80 Games

    Robinson Cano has tested positive for a banned substance, specifically a masking agent, and has been suspended 80 games

    http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/2...drug-agreement

    The story is slightly more nuanced, Cano tested positive for a masking agent and claims he was given the masking agent by a doctor in the Dominican Republic. Still, he has dropped his appeal and will serve his suspension.

    *Edited to clarify.

    Good catch. If a mod that wants to edit the title that would be great.

    Damn, 80 games. He could have thrown a senior citizen off a bypass and gotten less games.
    MLB is no joke.

    QUESTION FOR LAWMAN (or anyone who knows about these things): Should Seattle want to rid themselves of Cano's contract (this season and the next five @ $24M/per) is there any legal footing or case law about breaking a contract in professional sport due to drug use?

    All MLB contracts are fully guaranteed. Sure I'm curious as to what is wrong with Cano is it liver disease, kidney disease or heart failure. He learned it from Aroid.

    Anyone see what Cano's ex-teammate said (mark teixeira)? Seems like Cano is one of those guys who, if you follow it closely, has done this for his whole career.

    the banned substance he tested positive for was a PED masking agent... interpret that as you will. MLB changed their rules last year, if the Mariners make the playoffs - Cano is ineligible

    Wow....

    "Yeah, I don't really want to get into too much detail. I love Robbie. I'm just not surprised," said Teixeira, a baseball analyst for ESPN since retiring after the 2016 season. "I don't really want to go too much further, but I think a lot of people are kind of saying the same thing."
    Not siding with Cano by any means...but Tex shouldn't say oh I don't wanna say much.....but then just say he's not surprised! haha. Brutal.

    He could have gone into much more detail I guess was his thinking. Like, "well him and A-Rod would stay back in the changeroom together and then their was discarded needles in the trash"

    Haha yes. Just saying he opened the door and gave a tiny peak. Thought it would be "teammate code" to just keep it shut.

    At this point, I really think they should just let them take whatever they want. I want to see hulkish green men hitting baseballs so far they have to put a net over the entire stadium.
    I like Cano too, terrific ball player. Sad.

    I guess one rule in MLB would be - don't be friends with ARod ??

    I think a friend of Cano's was listed under the Biogenesis and was also friends with A-Rod. So it was this guy buying for both of them I think is the connection.
