    Good thing I never ponied up for his Super. This is why I have switched to like 95% proven/retired players in my collecting, selling and investing.

    I've never cared about baseball players using steroids. If it were up to me, it wouldn't be drug tested for in Major League Baseball. I've just never cared. Baseball was at its best when Sosa, Griffey, Ripken, Rickey, Canseco and McGwire were all sticking needles in themselves for the betterment of the game. It was awesome. I say let them all do it. And I'm not even being facetious.

    BUUUUUUUUUT........it IS against the rules now, and any player who gets popped is a complete moron, and deserves the punishment.

    After I had identified a few, I saw and recognized the shade of him who made, through cowardice, the great refusal.

    Jose Fernandez did that for me in the semifinals of my fantasy league last season.

    He LITERALLY wrecked and screwed my entire season. Literally. He crashed a boat, killing himself, and in the process bent me over and inserted a proverbial boat inside of my anus.

    Marte's statement said it was because of "neglect and lack of knowledge."

    He knew exactly what he was doing. He used an injectable-only steroid. He didn't just pop some pills thinking they were vitamins.

    Now the Pirates lose an All-Star and 2-time Gold glove winner for half the season because of his selfishness.

    Those statements are such BS. If a pro athlete is taking something they aren't getting from the team or at least clearing through the team they're trying to cheat something. Period. Maybe the Pirates will trade for Braun now, he's available

    People tend to forget or purposely chose to ignore a shady past when a player puts together a HOF career with multiple MVP awards & double digit All-Star appearances along the way.

    Does anyone (besides Lackey) think Eric Thames is on something?

    I was surprised to learn it's an 80 game suspension plus a postseason suspension for Marte, should the Pirates make it that far.
