    You really can't fix stupid.
    They take the substances to prolong their careers so they can continue to earn.

    Easy for you to say this not having millions of income on the line. Nobody walks away from money gracefully...nobody.

    Stupid yes...no matter how much longer he plays and how well, he will always have this "stamp" on him. He knew and those around him knew. It is the "it can't happen/won't happen to me" syndrome.

    Cano said he has never taken a PED. He just took a substance(diuretuc) to water down his urine to mask his taking a PED.

    The non denial denial apology. A classic. I don't think his stats get him into the HOF anyway.

    The MLB gives leeway as to the "intent" of the player that has tested positive for a diuretic. This is laughable. There is only one reason athletes test posi for a diuretic.

    Some of you imply that the future matters to baseball players from the DR. Only if that future is the same thing as today.

    Why don't the doctors ever apologize?
    Apologize for what?????????????? Cano was taking a masking agent to clean his urine samples. This was not the only thing he was taking. A very talented player and could have been a Yankee legend but money was more important than winning and his legacy. I guess I can't blame him but why would a Dominican player leave NYC to play in Seattle? I never understood that move for Robinson Cano? He will lose $12 million US dollars because of his stupidity and his reputation is shot. He will always be looked on as someone taking steroids to enhance his games. Very sad.

    You're right. Most Dominican ball players could care less about their legacy. They are there for the money and you really can't blame them. Coming out of the DR to become multi-millionaires will be their driving force. In Cano's case it is sad that he may have gone down as the best second baseman the Yankees ever had. He's a great player. Why did he feel the need to take PEDs? He should have stayed in NYC but he let his ego get in the way of his decision making. Sad.

    Its all about the people they chose to mingle with. Look at Pedro Martinez, an entire different story and the epitome of hard work, decency and professionalism.

    He was in the middle of a ten year $240 million contract. I believe that unlike the NFL, somebody in the MLB would have had to pay him until the expiration of the contract, even if he spent the next five on the DL. The only entity with financial motivation for him to use PEDs was the team. So yeah, pretty stupid.
