It's more of a stain on his reputation then anything because you can't get suspended unless you admit to taking it (e.g. Michael Morse). Baseball will look different with in season HGH testing this year IMO
From what has been reported Gio is on record to receive Aminorip. According to multiple sources, if that is the case, then Gio may be fine. There are no indications that any ingredients in Aminorip are on MLB's ban list. Unless, reports come out that he was noted to receive HGH or any other PEDs he should be fine.
Espi should hit 8th until he stops K-ing so often.

Gio might be completely exonerated, for all we know.

Desi fits perfectly in the bottom half of our lineup. But he has the tools to bat earlier, that's all I'm saying.

I'm really down on Espinosa. Sure he plays great D but on offense he K's wayyy to much to only be in the 15-25 hr range and doesn't hit for average at all. I know I've said this a million times but Rendon needs be moved to 2B down in AAA and we see what happens, this whole play injured thing is not going to work for Espinosa.
Goddamn it.,i hope its not true. I pray it's not true. Roiding in baseball is as close to an unforgivable sin to me as it gets. The great thing about baseball is the history and the numbers. And roiders take a giant **** on both of those things. I pray one of ours isn't guilty of that.
That said, like I said last week in one of the Lance threads, has anyone, ANYONE, ever been tied to PEDs and later exonerated? I can't think of anyone. But there's a first for everything and I hope that's the case here.
I get why people are down on Espi, but he had sixth best fangraphs war last year: http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.asp...ter=&players=0
I think he was like 3rd in WAR at baseball-reference too. Plus, he's still 25 or 26. Not time to give up on him yet, IMO.
I mean like REALLY exonerated. Like an apology issued, their name cleared, etc. Is there anyone who truly believes that Braun and Clemens didn't juice?

Just being implicated is a sentence of guilt in the PED world that we live in. There is no chance of redemption.
When the only recourse is to deny, deny, deny guilty or innocent...the waters will be forever muddy. A real shame.
But as misterirrelevant.com points out, according to what the article says, Gio isn't linked to PED's, just a PED doctor.
Tweets coming out now saying that the Miami newspaper that broke the story is about to release the records related to Gio. Hopefully that clears some stuff up.UPDATE: As our esteemed colleague Jack Kogod points out, NONE of the ingredients in AminoRip are on the MLB’s banned substances list, nor is Zinc and MIC (Methionine, Inositol, Choline). We cross-checked them all against the banned list.
Couple updates on this:
UPDATE, 5:17 p.m.: Bosch’s attorney, Susy Ribero-Ayala refuted the New Times report in a statement Tuesday, saying it was “filled with inaccuracies, innuendo and misstatements” and Bosch “vehemently denies the assertions that MLB players such as Alex Rodriguez and Gio Gonzalez were treated by or associated with him.”
Reached by phone on Wednesday and asked about Max Gonzalez’s relationship with Bosch, Ribero-Ayala wouldn’t comment or elaborate.
“I’m sticking to the statement I released and I’m not releasing any other statements at this time,” she said.
I dont know if anyone looked at these awesome docs that New Times posted today, but it looks like a fantasy baseball chart, diagramming batting averages and rbi's, etc.
