    He can only get away with PED use so many times on technicalities.

    I officially dislike him after the way he got in the soapbox after he got lucky the 1st time.

    Regardless if any really damning evidence comes out or not, he'll never win another MVP.

    Yup, I almost feel bad for him, though I lean heavily towards him being guilty.

    expect a huge fight out of the MLBPA out of this.

    this is a huge overreach by MLB IMO.

    Did you read the 2nd paragraph?

    Yes, but they're the players records.

    And the players never failed an MLB sanctioned drug test. So going after these is a vast overreach IMO. Nothing good can come of MLB having these records.

    I admit, I don't really know what is allowed in the CBA, the law etc.

    I'm pretty sure buying confidential doctor/patient records at least borders on illegal. But I can't say that 100%

    I'd have to re-examine the new MLB CBA, but I thought the language required a failed drug test to be busted for PEDs. This is only going to cause a PA nightmare if that language hasn't been changed.
