    Jim Bowden Top 50 Prospect List

    Solid regulars are going to be needed, there should be plenty of stars as long as Moncada and Robert and Eloy and Gio and so forth stay relatively healthy. Be nice to get one more solid regular for RF internally. If not Mazara with a reasonable extension for reasonable production then hopefully one of Basabe/Rutherford/Micker.

    Jim Bowden Top 50 Prospect List

    Do you think Bowden has personally scouted every prospect on the list? Hell nah. He's just a former GM (a poor one) with an opinion. Just one man's opinion. Vaughn is a 1B that's going to hit 280/360/500 for the next decade and produce a 3-4 fWAR every year. He's not a sexy prospect but something would have to really go wrong for him not to be a decent starter from 2022-2030.

    MLB cheating scandal

    At what point should one speculate on a message board? When they are 50% sure? 75% sure? When they have corroborating sources willing to go on the record and swear on a bible? I respect you and quin but this tone policing is nonsense and speaks to silly authoritarian instincts that permeate online spaces as well as off.

    10%. Probably some QBs and offensive line man. I'd hazard a guess near 98% of the position players outside QB are on PED cocktails.

    lol I almost subbed that for biceps. two smaller muscle groups that are very hard to get to "pop" unless you're on gear. And traps on a woman is a dead giveway she's on the female version of T, I forget its common name right now.

    I"ll say just as someone that has worked out literally going on two decades now and been on nothing but creatine and protein the entire time it's very, very easy to see the guys at the gym that are cycling T. They are shredded at 6% body fat, have massive biceps and do light weight maintenance off cycle and then on cycle lift heavy. If I can see it, I'm absolutely sure pro trainers and athletes can see it.

    MLB cheating scandal

    Because this isn't Walter Cronkite's news at 6 it's a MESSAGE BOARD. FFS the entire function is to talk among ourselves about rumors and news and SPECULATE on those topics. "oh no we can't speculate that Serena is on vitamins" -- hell yea I can look at her shoulders! LOOK AT TENNIS. LOOK AT NADAL! They are all getting help, or most of them.

    It's obvious that to compete in any endurance sport you have to be on the dope. You can enter the event but you ain't gonna win if you're all natty. Power sports mostly the same like sprinting, weight lifting, MMA, Bobsled. Especially when power/weight ratio is everything.

    It's insane to me that speculation in a message board is met with derision.

    Justin Verlander imo is a complete asshat. Hypocrites suck. Often times it's those that protest the loudest that have the most to hide.

    from 2002? How about what the world anti doping agency thinks in 2019.

    MLB cheating scandal

    that's a load of bunk. HGH is a miracle drug for fatique and recovery in season and furthermore can only be detected via blood test. I'd hazard a guess 2/3 of pro athletes are on it. Including Lebron and almost every big time NBA star and NFL star. I don't care, more power to 'em. But if true this waiver is insane.

    MLB cheating scandal

    you mean to tell me this swollen jaw dude is on HGH? Preposterous! FWIW I think HGH should be legal in general and it shouldn't be a banned substance in MLB as well but if this is true it's a million times bigger than the sign stealing scandal this involves a behind the scenes shady ass deal with the commish. This sort of waiver (if true) CANNOT be private.
