Baseball has asked for all of the bad press it now gets. It consistently and repeatedly requests the bad press.

So....

After my tirade over the Goldschmidt/McCutchen retaliation incident, and the fact the D-Backs may play a big factor in the NL post season race even they they are a not a factor record wise, Anthony Bosch of Biogenesis fame pleads guilty to conspiracy to distribute steroids to major league players (and high school players).

The list has been revealed to the media, and the reports are the players indicted are not of "A-Rod caliber", but several top MLB players.

I guess that may impact the post-season race as well. Bad day for baseball today. We shall see the fallout. I know baseball fans are all holding their collective breaths as to the names on that list.

It's about A-Rod, isn't it?

Wrong!

Matt Dodge in BBHQ's Friday newsletter tells us what we can expect from the little guys now that A-Rod is officially done for 2014.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez drops lawsuit
New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez has dropped his lawsuit against Major League Baseball, commissioner Bud Selig and the Players Association. Source: SportsCenter
BHQ take: Drafting Rodriguez is now only a play for 2015 and beyond. In the meantime, Kelly Johnson, Eduardo Nunez and Scott Sizemore are expected to share in the 3B AB. Johnson is expected to be the primary 3B, even though he has only played 16 games there in his career, partly because his .978 fielding percentage there (and .982 in 809 games at 2B) significantly outshines Nunez (.923) and Sizemore (.934) at the hot corner. More importantly for fantasy players, Johnson can be expected to contribute more with the bat, and is currently projected to provide double digit HR and SB thanks to the playing time estimate. Sizemore actually offers above average power (119 PX) and speed (109 SPD), and could become the short side of a platoon with Johnson, as his career .779 OPS vs LHP (compared to a .673 career OPS vs RHP) may get Joe Girardi's attention. Nunez tantalizes with his 127 SPD projection, but his fielding woes may relegate him to a less important pinch running and utility role. -Matt Dodge
Impact: High
Nunez, Eduardo PT Loss: -10%
Sizemore, Scott PT Gain: 15%
Johnson, Kelly A PT Gain: 5%
Rodriguez, Alex PT Loss: -55%

Or pessimist.

Here's a summary by Jay Jaffe @ SI ... and I find the first comment very interesting ...

I think your article misses one of the most critical points made in the ruling. The testimony of Bosch, the notebook entries, the BlackBerry messages, and the claims of delivery of drugs to A-Rod, Sucart and Velazquez were not contradicted by ANY evidence presented by A-Rod. None of them testified to say they did not get the drugs from Bosch, no evidence from A-Rod's BlackBerry showing that the messages were fabricated, nothing. This is key - absent any evidence to the contrary, the evidence presented by Bosch and MLB was accepted. This point was made more than once in the ruling. A-Rod's defense was that the evidence was collected improperly, and should therefore be disregarded. But the ruling states clearly that he presented no evidence to contradict MLB's evidence. It seems to me he was seeking a loophole to avoid punishment rather than prove he never used PES.

Manfred was on the arbitration panel and has access to all of the information that was part of the investigation. The JDA states that both parties will keep the details confidential. The problem with provisions like this in a CBA is that there is no recourse for a violation. They go directly to the relationship b/w the parties.

An enforcement action is a grievance that an arbitrator would make a finding that the confidentiality provision was violated and the remedy would be to follow it next time. And, what language can you put in to make it stronger- both parties will keep the details confidential and we really, really mean it?

Just watched it. Explosive.

But then it really is a robust telling of MLB's story. The challenges were pro forma, the structure designed to leave you convinced that ARod is guilty not only of drugs but also issuing a contract for a hit.

Could you expand on the Manfred comment Eugene. If he violated certain provisions of the JDA shouldn't there be some type of recourse brought into play?

The cheaters do seem to be able to keep one step ahead the testing but as long as players are willing to deal with loser scumbags like Bosch in order to cheat, the truth isn't likely to remain hidden.

MLB can't be happy with that broadcast. Instead of a PR coup, what it got was, "Everybody did it. Everybody is still doing it."
