With 30 major league teams, 40-man rosters for each one, and a slew of minor league affiliates filled with baseball’s rank and file and a First-Year Player Draft adding hundreds of names to the mix, you’d think there would be more to talk about than Yasiel Puig and Biogenesis, right? Yet everywhere you look, those are the headlines we continue to see. So allow me to address these two things one last time. Yes, I’m sure Puig’s name will find its way in and out of a daily recap article from time to time and once the final decisions on suspensions are announced we’ll throw the named names into a little section near the injuries part, but for a focal point of discussion, this is it. We’ve wasted far too much time already on them and personally, I think Mark Appel is a much tastier topic, even if he’s now stuck on the Astros.
While the latest Biogenesis suspension news is prevalent on everyone’s minds, I’d rather not sit here and discuss it just yet. There’s nothing you can do right now but sit and wait. You’re not benching anyone until they’re actually suspended and trying to shop anyone such as Ryan Braun, Melky Cabrera, Gio Gonzalez or anyone else connected with it only makes you look like an ass in the eyes of your fellow fantasy owners. You’re just going to have to wait and see and make the necessary adjustments once the sh*t actually hits the fan. In the meantime, let’s look to bigger and brighter things happening in the game.
