I think its highly likely that at least a few d backs have been cheating over the last few years and just never got caught


Its not cheating if you dont get caught. ;)

Nothing wrong with most of the roster having ADD. ;)

I wink just like baseball has winked concerning the newest baseball drug phase.


Not sure if serious...

Adderall (or similar amphetamines for ADD) aren't banned substances?

:lol:

I thought, or my common sense led me to think, that amphetamines would be one of the prohibited substances regardless of supposed "medical conditions." Obviously, players can get 'scripts for low testosterone issues, yet those drugs are still banned.

The first link from googling "mlb adderall" brings up this (year and a half old) article. Mind = blown.

Quote:
When the league banned these drugs, an amazing thing happened. The number of players claiming and obtaining “therapeutic use” exemptions for stimulants nearly quadrupled from 28 to 103.

Quote:
MLB should have also taken notice of what pretty much EVERYONE else had when these numbers were first published, namely that among adults, the rate of diagnosis is between 1 percent and 3.5 percent. But among pro baseball players, the disease seems epidemic. That means 8 percent of major-league players have ADHD—twice the rate among children and three to eight times the rate among adults.

Good Lord! "Oh what a tangled web we weave..."
Doesn't seem as though he's so stand up now I guess. If this website thing turns out to be true, he needs to be suspended minimum of 1 year, if not forever. MLB cannot have players cheating and doing this kind of crap and get by with it.
So does this invalidadte his batting title? All of this was going down during that apparently.

My bad, make that his MVP of the All Star Game :oops:

x2. This is not only someone cheating, but someone knowing they were cheating, and coming up with an elaborate plot to hide it.

1 year at least.

Why did he think this plan was going to get him off? I thought ignorance of what you took/used was not a valid defense?

I agree with what Gibson said in an interview, 1 year ban for a first time offender and then lifetime for a second offense.

Doesn't keep people from cheating in Track and Field. They have a 2 yr suspension for first offense.

and the plot thickens... this was a serious operation trying to coverup the roid use

What kills me is it seems like this process had been going on for weeks before Cabrera was actually suspended... who knows when his failed test actually occurred and he was still able to play for weeks while MLB had to unravel his ruse.

Ruled ineligible for batting title per his own request.

Good move but I'm surprised the player's association agreed.

What a stark contrast to Ryan Braun's antics.

Cabreara was found guilty even after an appeal process that played out in private. Braun was never found guilty, nor was he ever afforded a private appeal process.
