    Voiding a players MLB contract, may get the players to stop using PED. Make them a FA at the teams request.

    Giving teams $10s of millions in incentives for getting detectable banned substances into a sunk costís body seems like a bad idea.

    Quirky thing about this is the Mariners kind of caught a break, in that Cano just broke his hand and had surgery yesterday, he was likely going to miss 60 games, regardless. Thing is if they did make the playoffs, he's ineligible.

    Pettitte might be the last guy that had openly confessed, lots of players before his time admitted to it, amphetamines, coke, etc...

    He was appealing the case. Once his hand was broke it became a pretty easy decision I would imagine to drop the appeal.

    I don't know about easy, as he doesn't draw a paycheck while being suspended. That's a considerable amount of money, plus a potential playoff share (however unlikely).

    So instead of $240M he's going to about $228M. Damn, I think we should start a fundraising campaign. I hope he can still send his kids to college and feed his family.

    The only thing furosemide is used for (medically) is heart failure, fluid-buildup (due to liver/kidney failure or end-stage disease) and rarely, if ever, for hypertension. Since I doubt with the first two conditions, he would be able to play, it would be high blood pressure for which there are many better drugs (first-line).

    So... hm.

    Regardless...no MLB player should take anything without filing a TUE. There is zero medical reason that is a legit excuse for this.
