Is anyone worried about the rumor of Cano, Granderson, A-Rod, and Braun being suspended for failing a PED test? Now, this rumor is about a week old and was tweeted by a random sports blogger. However, this blogger also tweeted a month before Melky was suspended that his 'source' told him Melky was going to be suspended for failing a test. Hard to imagine that was just a coincidence.
Here is why I'm worried
1. Cano and Melky were best friends, they lived together while Melky was on the Yankees.
2. The Yankees have been strangely quiet this off-season, perhaps throwing in the towel with the news? Most chalked it up due to the luxury tax, but it's just not like the Yankees still.
3. Cano not being signed yet, I was assuming the Yankees would throw a gigantic contract at him before the season started.
4. Braun and A-Rod would surprise no one..
5. The only surprise would be Granderson
Could you imagine if it was true? How would it reflect upon the Yankees as a franchise?
Maybe Bud is waiting till after the WBC finishes and the season officially begins? Wouldn't reflect well on baseball that a few major names have been suspended during a tournament designed to spread the game.
Could be a farce to attract traffic towards his site, but his source was right before..so I'm a little nervous at least.
