I have so many questions.

How many agents, do you think, know of clients' PED use?

Why would Cano, with a monster guaranteed deal, dare to use PEDs?  Hurt pride from his 2019 numbers?

Mike Landau ML-

Joel Sherman: "... imagine if Rodriguez, not Cohen, had bought the Mets. Perhaps the most notorious PED cheat ever and a buddy of Cano’s would be presiding over a team that just lost Cano to a drug suspension."

As for Brodie, "... unless Edwin Diaz is jumping up and down after getting the final out of a Mets World Series triumph, Van Wagenen is going to be the father of one of the worst trades in history — before even knowing if Jarred Kelenic becomes a major league star."

"ESPN's Jeff Passan reports that Robinson Cano has tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug and will be suspended without pay for the entire 2021 season.

It's the second career PED suspension for Cano, who was forced to sit out 80 games with the Mariners in 2018 following a positive test for Furosemide, a diuretic often used to mask drug use. This time, the PED found in his system was Stanozolol, an anabolic steroid derived from dihydrotestosterone. Cano will forfeit a whopping $24 million in salary, which could be a blessing in some ways for the Mets as they look to spend big this winter under new owner Steve Cohen."
