MLB seeks to suspend A-Rod, Braun
« on: June 06, 2013, 01:58:38 AM »
Here's one which ought interest DC.

Opening paragraph: Major League Baseball will seek to suspend about 20 players connected to the Miami-area clinic at the heart of an ongoing performance-enhancing drug scandal, including Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun, possibly within the next few weeks, "Outside the Lines" has learned. If the suspensions are upheld, the performance-enhancing drug scandal would be the largest in American sports history.

From there the story drones on and on about steroids and the infamous Biogenesis of America clinic. It isn't until near the very end the players are named:

The players who might ultimately face discipline from MLB include: Rodriguez, Braun, Cabrera, Colon, Grandal, Nelson Cruz, Francisco Cervelli, Jesus Montero, Jhonny Peralta, Cesar Puello, Fernando Martinez, Everth Cabrera, Fautino de los Santos, Jordan Norberto and a number of other players who either are identified by code names or whose names appear in other documents not obtained by "Outside the Lines."

Is it just me or do almost all those names sound like they came from the Guadalajara phone directory?
