    Can someone smart explain how this works. He's been taking PEDs for a long time and using this masking agent to cover it up. I'll assume he's been tested multiple times over the past 15 years...how do they just now pick up on the masking agent? Does it work and leave the system quickly?

    This makes sense.

    It's a year in which MLB must ensure that a small market team like Seattle must not make the playoffs. Angels Must be in the WC with the Dodgers not doing well

    Very smart straregic move.

    I'm assuming they have positive drug tests on a 100 percent of the players and only throw those under the bus that make sense strategically in maximizing profits and revenue

    Every single professional athlete takes performance enhancing supplements, the majority of which are allowed. Some just go further and take banned stuff too.

    I feel like if it came out that piles of hockey players are using cocaine and PED's that it would be a massive "thing" in Canada. It's Canada's game.
    I'll also point out that cocaine is a PED for a sport like hockey. Increased reaction time and stamina, boosted confidence and aggression.

    There are people creating new masking agents every day. It is a totally different test for Duiretics so it's probably cost (and not really caring as steroids are good for sports and pose zero harm to anyone using properly. I know Travis Demiritte got nailed for them back in 2015 which I think was the first year they were testing for it.

    Wouldn't they just take an amphetamine instead of cocaine?

    You know, I like Verlander but I sure wish players would get off their high horses, especially when they themselves probably aren't innocent.

    Someone dug up a tweet of his 5 years ago where he was making excuses for then teammate Jhonny Peralta failing a steroid test.

    If Judge failed a drug test, it would be buried deeper than those creatures in 80s movies Tremors.
