Everything is in the past. Doesn't mean it doesn't speak to the present and future.

And he did fail a test. It may not have been a chemical test, but it was a test nonetheless. The idea that he passed urine tests vindicates his performance kind of ignores the obvious notion that he was playing with a body developed while breaking the rules at an earlier time.

An inquiry reveals doubts both inside and outside the organization.

The guy making the inquiries, however, remains more optimistic.

In 115 at-bats in the Dominican Winter League: .200 / .252 / .261 // .513.

Gulp.

Cesar seeing Spring Training action -

In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, "I have finished." There is a lot of satisfaction in that - Fred Lebow

Buena Suerte, Cesar.
I hope you sign with an AL team and spend the next 10 years beating the crap out of the MFYs.

Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.

I can't.
I've already adopted him.
But I would like to see an organization sign him.

He is now playing for Salt Lake city in the PCL, and has homered in each of the the last two games against the Mets AAA Las Vegas team, his 11th and 12th homers of the year.

My kid made his major league debut today for the Angels. He went 1-4 (a single) with his first major league RBI and 2 (that's TWO) stolen bases.

Glad you finally made it, kid.
Stay clean.
