He will be in the same group as McGwire, Bonds, Clemens, Sosa, ect...

Damon should move to DH fulltime, so there could be a Jennings sighting sometime this summer for sure.

Paging Desmond Jennings? Too soon? If anything, he'd help out their defense bigtime.

he gambled and lost. I think he wanted to pop some pills that would help him put up better numbers. since baseball is random testing maybe he thought he wouldn't be one of the ones tested?

the best move TB can make is putting Damon at DH and putting Jennings in the OF.
when Longoria gets back, who is his protection? not that Ramirez was really good at this point, but the TB lineup is looking weaker this season. with the way Baltimore has improved, the Orioles could be looking at 3rd place.

Of course. He's one of the greatest hitters of all time.

The fact that his masking agents didn't work again surprises me...he needed to get some better stuff.

I'm surprised a Red Sox fan forget about ARod. Or will we put him in because he apologized?

absolutely not HOF

this is his 3rd strike, he doesnt deserve it

1) Mitchell list, im sure he was on it, but wasnt released
2) Dodger Suspension
3) Now this?

at least other guys havent been busted a 2nd time

...perhaps because the league's drug testing policy wasn't in effect to the degree that it is today when the "other guys" - with the exception of A-Rod - were active.
