  • Yasmani Grandal earns 50 game suspension

    San Diego Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal, a 2010 first-round draft pick who hit two home runs in his first career Major League Baseball start last season, was suspended for 50 games after testing positive for testosterone.

    Grandal, 23, will begin his suspension at the start of the 2013 season for using the banned muscle builder. The Padres said in a statement they’re disappointed in Grandal’s violation of MLB’s drug prevention and treatment program.

    Only Yasmani Grandal dedicated thread....


    Mr. Grandal so far this year is hitting 0.136 with a 0.391 OBP for the beloved. He's 12/88 for his mighty BA, with 38 walks and 34 strikeouts.

    An extremely frustrating mixed-bag year. Perversely I'm hoping he can keep these stats up all year, in a full season. I'd love to see a 0.136 BA eligible hitter. Of course the odds are he'll get up to 0.215 or the like, but a 0.136 BA would be truly something to see. He is up to 0.211 with RISP! So much fun....

    I've not been overly impressed with his game. The good results seem to be when the coaches call the pitches for him. It is tough to determine exactly when he has the freedom to call his own pitches, but the best results seem to be when the bench calls the pitches.

      It looks like Grandal is channeling Gene Tenace!

        10 years ago, the Sox shut Adam Dunn down for the remainder of the season late in the year, before he got enough at-bats to qualify for the batting title, because he would have posted the worst batting average in history. Grandal probably won't get the chance to bat .136.
        They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.
