The truth is that there is no deterrent for baseball players to stop taking steroids. Will A-Rod, if suffering the same fate as Braun, have to give back any of his millions? Does Braun have to give back his MVP honor? Oh, he's giving up a piddly $ million of the five-year, $105 million extension he signed in 2011? How tragic. How about known alleged dopers, like Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire or Sammy Sosa — have they been removed from the record books? Have there been any long-term health ramifications for using performance-enhancing drugs? It’s not like retired baseball graybeards are dying off like former WWE wrestlers who (possibly) doped.
ESPN’s sources are saying things again . Currently, these things are being said about New York Yankees slugger (read: he’s muscular) Robinson Cano. Yes, these things are of the steroid and/or PED variety. Yes, there is legitimate speculation that Robinson Cano was a client of Biogenesis, the clinic that brought us the A-Rod and Ryan Braun scandal-y scandals. This doesn’t come out of nowhere , as there was a somewhat believable rumor circulating earlier, that we actually found credible enough to mention on our esteemed internet space.
