Check out some of the names on this list - Melky Cabrera, Yasmani Grandal, Bartolo Colon, Nelson Cruz, Gio Gonzalez and Rodriguez. As noted, Cabrera, Grandal, and Colon have been busted for PEDs already - and Grandal must serve his suspension to start the year (which is why Nick Hundley was not a trade option, especially for the catching starved Yankees). Colon has been under suspicion since his return to the majors in 2011 with the Yankees and his "miracle arm" is what I'll call it. Cruz and Gonzalez have not been tied to PEDs yet. If it turns out to be true for Rodriguez, it might just be the nail in the coffin for him. The injuries have been piling up, the public distaste has risen high - it might be time to pack it in. I don't know how Rodriguez can explain himself out of this one, especially since MLB adopted HGH testing this offseason.
