Another MLB Star Rumored To Be On The Verge Of Being Suspended For 50 Games. Possibly Lance Berkman.
I don't usually like posting on completely baseless rumors....no, I kid, of course I do. And this one is pretty huge.
One message board poster over at RotoWorld posted a whopper of a rumor yesterday
, and of course it involves MLB and steroids.
Okay, here's the deal. I work at CBS Sports and across the street is the MLB Network. I overheard one of our execs talking to a PR guy here. He said, "rumor is another big star is going to be suspended 50 games." Now, like I said, you can't get more rumory (yeah, I'm making this word up) than this. I heard no name or anything, but you know how the world works, the high ups have the info and they talk to each other. This is all I have on the matter.
Now, I know what you're thinking. This is complete crap. Well, perhaps, but RotoInfo (completely different site) had this to say on their Twitter page today
According to sources close MLB Lance Berkmans name has been floating around the commissioners office as a possible 50 game suspension looms
So, it sounds like someone is likely to get nailed for messing around with steroids real soon, and Berkman seems like the probably candidate. But what if it isn't Berkman?
- Pujols? There have been questions about him for years.
- Big Papi? A suddenly huge decline in productivity. Did he get nabbed during spring training, and it's messing with his mind?
- Carlos Quentin? Had an MVP-caliber year last year out of nowhere.
Let us know who you think it might be. If you guess right, you get a lifetime supply of HGH.
