While everybody in the sports world is focused on Alex Rodriguez today, the Mets universe just imploded with news that not one but TWO New York Mets will be suspended by MLB for 50 games.
Look, we all knew that Cesar Puello was involved. It was just a matter of time, and I still contend to this day that since the Mets knew that he was involved they didn’t feel rushed to promote Puello. With Puello, it is what it is.
But what’s this? Jordany Valdespin, suspended for 50 games? Say it ain’t so. The most polarizing bench player in all of baseball, using…PED’s? I guess you could say that Jordany Had A Bad Day?
You know, I am sick and tired of hearing Valdespin’s name even associated with the New York Mets. I’m all for giving a guy a second chance – I’ll give Byrd a second chance, I’ll give Puello a second chance, heck I even gave Ryan Braun a second chance. Valdespin has had more chances than any .219 career hitter deserves.
From the day he posed wearing a Miami Marlins caps, I was done ...

And here is what happened on A-Rod’s first official day back in the pinstripes:
- MLB finally handed out the infamous Biogenesis suspensions yesterday, and A-Rod got the heftiest at 211-games. The other 12 players busted will sit out 50-games, which is standard...

The post #MetsTwitterRecap: Jordany Valdespin Suspended In Biogenesis Scandal appeared first on The Daily Stache.
One by one the names were read, but only one brought an immediate response from me: Jordany Valdespin of the New York Mets.
The reaction was two-fold. First laughter, because aren’t these supposed to be “performance enhancing drugs?’’ The second was this probably explains a lot about his behavior, which seemingly has been a permanent case of “Roid Rage.’’
It is certainly no secret that Yankees radio broadcaster Suzyn Waldman sees things through a Yankees-colored light to the point that she probably wears pinstriped pajamas. But she found a new way to prove that sometimes, at least, she just doesn’t see all of reality.
Waldman and longtime radio partner John Sterling were on hand Monday night in Chicago where Yankees third baseman...
Your browser does not support iframes. New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez was hit by a pitch during a loss to the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, and the fans in attendance seized the moment. As expected, White Sox fans booed A-Rod mercilessly when he appeared in his first MLB game this season on [...]
Alex Rodriguez just talked himself out of a possible settlement with Major League Baseball and faces a 214-game suspension to be handed down on Monday the Daily News has learned.
Following Rodriguez’s explosive comments after Friday night’s minor league rehab game in Trenton in which Rodriguez basically said Major League Baseball and the Yankees were conspiring to keep him...
Alex Rodriguez will reportedly appeal any suspension levied by MLB in connection to Biogensis and PEDs. This meme shows what his defense will be.
LOS ANGELES I'm really concerned about Alex Rodriguez.
I'm not worried that he'll never play another game he probably doesn't have many of those left in his 38-year old body anyway. And I'm not worried about him being elected to the Hall of Fame, because as long as suspicion and not fact can keep you out, it's not a real HOF anyway. No, I'm actually...
WFAN cut to every Alex Rodriguez at bat last night. Besides the overkill, you had the demented one, Suzyn Waldman, hearing and seeing things. Sure, cheers for Arod but -- wow, Friday's going to be like Kim Jong-un has returned home.

Congratulations to T.J. Rivera of the Saint Lucie Mets for being named today’s MMN Player of the Week.
When I looked at the candidates this past week in all levels of the Mets farm system, I tried to compare to other deserving winners like Las Vegas 51’s Jordany Valdespin who won last week’s MMN’s and PCL Player of the Week by putting up some gaudy numbers. JV1 was basically...
A total of 12 players, not named Alex Rodriguez, have been suspended in consequence for their involvement with the shady South Florida drug clinic known as Biogenesis. All 12 have accepted their suspensions with none having plans to appeal.

It should also be noted that Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera, San Diego Padres catcher Yasmani...
When news broke thatMajor League Baseball had suspended Alex Rodriguez through 2014, opinions ranged far and wide on the punishment for the slugger and whether or not it was fair. While Rodriguez has vowed to fight the suspension, one person had an interesting theory on why A-Rod has had so many troubles lately.
Former Florida Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen chimed in with his thoughts...
It was a dark day for baseball.
No, it was a great day for baseball.
How about we just agree it was an important day in baseball history?
Monday was D-Day for Major League Baseball's Biogenesis investigation, as 12 players accepted 50-game suspensions for violating MLB's drug policy and Yankees star Alex Rodriguez defiantly appealed a suspension through the 2014 season...
