Nolan Silbernagel and Matt Rosenfeld sat down with Buster Olney of the ESPN family of networks and asked him all questions regarding the recent suspensions of players tied to taking performance enhancing drugs.  Olney gives his take as to whether or not this past Monday, which was when 12 players were suspended for taking PED’s, was a good or bad day for baseball, if he was surprised only Alex Rodriguez appealed the suspension, and if he expects the penalties to get tougher against players using PED’s.

Last week Milwaukee Brewers leftfielder Ryan Braun was suspended for 65 games by Major League Baseball for violating its basic agreement and joint drug prevention and treatment program. He did not appeal the suspension, inferring that he knew the severity of evidence held against him, and the potential of lingering criticism that would follow him to every city the rest of the season. Finally, baseball got the man that had cheated them, on the field and in court.

When you get an update sent to your phone that one of Alex Rodriguez’s rehab games in AA-Trenton has been rained out, there’s a problem.

The injured Yankees third baseman has been a magnet to criticism ever since he managed just three hits in 25 ABs last postseason, yet somehow he’s turned into something of a good guy.

Nolan Silbernagel and Kris Venezia sat down with columnist for MLB.com Matthew Leach to talk about the state of the Yankees.  Leach weighed in on his thoughts about how the team has performed so far, what having Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter back will do for the Pinstripes, and who the first half MVP of the Bronx Bombers has been so far this year.
