    Go read the Joint Drug Agreement: http://mlb.mlb.com/pa/pdf/jda.pdf

    Of course they never asked about Headley…

    look at those baseball writer’s comments on A-Rod, they are just laughable.
    A-Rod’s biggest crime is his contract.

    Missing in the “The Yankees should buy out A-Rod.” MLBPA does not permit buyouts for sig. lower dollars. Just change of term.

    I wonder if Chad feels like a pimp when he sees ‘Chad’s Girls’ pop up a bunch of times.

    The team just signed Ichiro to see if he can make them more money by chasing an individual achievement.
    ===========================
    Did they write that into his contract? No.
    Ichiro is a viable part of this team, not a hairy monster.
    I like that direction.
    Why should a player get paid with incentives, if he’s a player he’s already got a contract.
    Isn’t that incentive enough?

    They never boo Jeter.
    ____
    Au contraire. They booed him repeatedly during that slump in 2004. He was also booed in a Red Sox game at the Stadium, July 4th I believe, 2008. Mo has also been booed. I was at all of these games. It was despicable.
    =======================================
    Those were Red Sox fans.
    Stop parsing.

    I think we need to get Chad’s Girls and Chad’s Boys out on a date. Those folks are lonely and have had their heart broken by Chad :(

    @Ken_Rosenthal: #Diamondbacks announce four-year extension with Prado.

    Certainly makes the deal better for dbacks

  10. blake January 31st, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    @Ken_Rosenthal: Source: Prado four-year contract with #Diamondbacks is for $40 million.

    Good deal

    Correct….you can defer money or restructure

  13. Rich in NJ January 31st, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    Which makes it more likely that the best route to get A-Rod out of town, assuming they don’t want to look at him, is to get Selig to approve a trade that has them paying most of the contract, which he will. That’s why A-Rod needs to play this season, and play well.

  14. Shame Spencer January 31st, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    Cash – I figured it was one of the regulars lol, nicely done!

  15. DONNYBROOK January 31st, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    The Prado contract is proof positive that the R\Sox overpaid Victorino. What New?

  16. Shame Spencer January 31st, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    Great deal for Prado.. dang..

  17. Cashmoney January 31st, 2013 at 1:20 pm

    Going to a Super Bowl gathering on Sunday, anyone has an opinion which team is going win?

  18. DONNYBROOK January 31st, 2013 at 1:22 pm

    The Super Bowl means 1 Thing to me. Fantasy Baseball Drafts in the Immediate future.

    =======================================

    I’d bet the D’backs were working w/ Prado’s rep thru back channels in advance of the trade and were near certain this was going to get done when they pulled the trigger on it.

  20. Ys Guy January 31st, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    i think everyone is overlooking the possibility of a lifetime ban on Arod too easily. MLB can go after him for using PED’s in 3 (4 actually) separate seasons and thus impose a lifetime ban.

    this would mean he’d never collect another penny.

    idk if this would hold up in arbitration, it might and it might not, but it is certainly an avenue MLB could go down.

    and if they do, even before it goes to arbitration it creates a huge incentive for Arod to settle with the yankees.

  21. Ys Guy January 31st, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    DONNY…this is that time of year where you and I think alike!

    doesnt happen too often but here it is!

  22. Shame Spencer January 31st, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    Ys – They need to prove he took them. Right now, they have paper saying he bought them.. to that I say: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tum.....o1_250.gif

    And if they can prove he bought them.. how do you prove he took them?

  23. Jerkface January 31st, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    And not sure MLB can cut up this discovery into multiple offenses

  24. Cashmoney January 31st, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    4 for 40 seems a very reasonable contract consider Prodo’s versatility and his offensive bod of works as a 29 year old.

    Did fantasy baseball once , finished second to last, It consumed way too much of my time.

  25. blake January 31st, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    “I’d bet the D’backs were working w/ Prado’s rep thru back channels in advance of the trade and were near certain this was going to get done when they pulled the trigger on it.”

    Yea almost certainly ….I don’t hate the deal nearly as bad for them now….I still think maybe they could have gotten more….but for a player they almost had to move…coulda been worse

  26. Wave Your Hat January 31st, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    “And not sure MLB can cut up this discovery into multiple offenses”

    Based on what’s come out so far, I don’t think MLB can do anything. Unless ARod tests positive or additional facts emerge. Check out Article 7 of the Joint Drug Agreement:

    http://mlb.mlb.com/pa/pdf/jda.pdf

  27. Ys Guy January 31st, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    they actuallly dont have to prove he took them, buying them or having them delivered is sufficient for a suspension.

    idk how multiple uses from a single supplier counts in the cba but its hard to call usage over 4 seasons one offense. it’s clearly at least 4 instances of usage.
    if he paid separately for each ‘dose’ as the records indicate, he violated the drug policy on each separate occasion.

    ——————————

    The Ravens seem to be on an emotional high/hot at the right time run. And with this being Ray’s last yr it seems like a team of destiny kind of thing.

    I hope the 9ers win though.

    That’s just from all that deer antler extract

    lol, yesterday all the bloggers were saying Arod is as good as gone, today it’s all about Arod likely to be back.

    Ravens are tough but can’t see them being able to contain Kaepernick. The guy is built like Superman; he can do just about everything and throws the ball as hard as Aroldis Chapman. Should be a close game but I’m picking the 49ers to win by three. Enjoy the chicken wings!

  32. Ys Guy January 31st, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    i think the question of whether this could count as multiple offenses is the most critical question in this whole affair. and i havent heard or read one person who addressed it.

    if its multiple violations, then i think arod’s career is over one way or another.

  33. DONNYBROOK January 31st, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    The possible ducking of A-Rod’s contract don’t mean squat to me. The discussion should center on Hal and the penny-pinching. There’s NO guarantee that even if the Yanks get outta A-Rod’s contract, that Hal is gonna loosen the purse strings. Hal should be trashed early and often, day-in-day out, in order to either get him to spend some of that profit $$$, or Sell.
