    Anthony Bosch and Yuri Sucart (AKA, A-Rod's cousin) were among those arrested by the Feds for distributing steroids today:

    Please let Ryan Braun and A-Rod be on the list.

    Braun and A-Rod weren't "previously unnamed."

    True, it would nice to see Braun suspended again and for A-Rod to have his suspension last another year or so.

    Why would the Feds do this to Bud. They could have waited a few more months.

    It'll be five fringe relief pitchers and a utility infielder from Latin America. Braun's like the first white guy and one of only two stars (Melky Cabrera) caught in the last forever.

    Well then obviously nobody else is doing it. The only ones doping re the ones that get caught

    If I recall the original post, the topic is players about to get caught.

    That's who gets caught.

    Your post makes a strawman argument.

    If David Ortiz is on the list, everybody will instantly forget about it.

    I was having a conversation with my brother at Sunday's White Sox game. What if Jose Quintana, who is only 25 years old and already pretty good, went on to win 250 games? He had a PED suspension, if I'm not mistaken, when he was very young and in the Yankees' system.

    I'm all for giving people second chances, but the lack of attention paid to Ortiz' PED past strikes me as being convenient and that pisses me off.

    I've always thought it was interesting which players get the most attention during these things and which get somewhat ignored.

    Sometimes it's obvious, if there is a name like Bonds or A-Rod, but there are other players who are HOF-caliber who have their presumed PED use somewhat ignored. Bagwell jumps to mind.
