What is wrong with Francisco Rodriguez this last month? With the exception of yesterday blown save, this trend is killing my fantasy team.

Dammit, I want him to be back on the stuff. He was untouchable in the first half of the season.

Make that 5. How fitting that the game ended on a double play.

Stupid Daniel Cabrera. When I had him on my team, he sucked donkey dick. No he's throwing a no-no.

Are you able to provide photographic evidence of such acts?

A poster at SOSH:

Okay. I'm going to post this and everyone is going to go totally batshit. So I'd really like everyone to remember that this is a RUMOR that I heard second-hand. I don't work at ESPN. This comes from a friend that does. But apparently...

The ESPN studios are going batshit with the rumor that Clemens is has been busted for 'roids.

Then from the same person:

For what it's worth, I just heard this from a second person who spent time in the ESPN studios today. Apparently it's all anyone was talking about.
I guess its just a rumor for now and its just some guy on the internet, but a lot of times, SOSH members have gotten inside info out sooner than the media. Im not sure I trust a person who uses the term "batshit" twice in 5 sentences. But its been a slow day and some people here have wondered about Clemens so I figured I would post it here.

I hope that's wrong. Not just for Clemens, and not just for baseball, but if B.A. and Deftones read it while sitting down, they'll never be able to stand up again.

Holy crap. It would be amazing if he did test positive. That would mean his Cy Young chances are pretty much null and void. Wow.

When the rumor about a sure HOFer that would "bring baseball to its knees" testing positive, he was the first one who came to my mind. And honestly, it wouldn't surprise me.

It might be horrible for baseball in the short-term, but over the course of years/decades, it could be good. Maybe we'll eventually see some real punishments...

What, you mean you don't gain 5-6 mph on your fastball suddenly in your late 30's, early 40's?
