Now it looks like Monday will be the Biogenesis announcement day

Aug 2, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

Earlier we heard that the Biogenesis stuff will be announced “no later than Monday.” Now Jon Heyman is reporting that it will, in fact, be on Monday:

Well, I suppose that frees up our weekend, eh?

    Yet FOX Sports just reported earlier that about 9 suspensions would be announced today.

    Seriously, MLB has an agenda and I am fine with that. Be thorough with your investigation before making any announcements. BUT PICK A DAY ALREADY? I’m more sick of these incorrect reports than the extended wait!

      I think they should a similar one hour broadcast of LeBron’s “The Decision” called “The Suspensions”. They could also donate the money to charity.

    MLB is soooo desperate for A-Rod to accept a deal. To me, that means he should seriously think about fighting them even more.

  3. buffal0sportsfan - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:16 PM

    Didn’t they say that about today and yesterday and the day before that…….

      But this time, we promise we’re telling the truth!

      • paperlions - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:42 PM

        This time it counts!

    So, they’re not just suspending ARod, they’re sending him to Normandy? Jeez, seems a bit harsh.

    • churchoftheperpetuallyoutraged - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:21 PM

      Worse, Wisconsin

      • heyblueyoustink - Aug 2, 2013 at 3:25 PM

        You’re not going to make me say some like Detroit and this whole thing turns into a bunch of argle fargle bargle, right?

        BETHANY: I mean about the angel of Death’s resignation.

        METATRON: For a liberal, yes, but this is the Angel of Death we’re talking about. The
        Angel of Death can’t be a conscientious objector. The Angel of Death is
        charged with meting out whatever justice God demands. So for their
        insolence, God decreed that neither Loki nor Bartleby would ever be allowed
        back into Paradise.

        BETHANY: Were they sent to Hell?

        METATRON: Worse. Wisconsin. For the entire span of human history. And when the world
        ends, they’ll sit outside the gates for eternity.

        I should have gotten the reference, of all movies be damned.

        It’s been too long since i’ve seen it, This weekend I’ll change that as penitence.

      • churchoftheperpetuallyoutraged - Aug 2, 2013 at 4:46 PM

        The only reason I remembered it was because I spent six months last winter consulting in WI. Some areas are absolutely beautiful, but I’ll never want to go back to Green Bay if I can help it.

        Hey, I got the sh!t kicked out of me in Wisconsin…

  5. proudlycanadian - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:22 PM

    I understand that there is a CBS story that says that MLB thinks that Arod recruited players for Biogenesis. I had wondered how the players found out about Biogenesis?

    • churchoftheperpetuallyoutraged - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:30 PM

      Same way anyone else hears about anything? Phone calls, texts, word of mouth? Cold Calling from Biogenesis?

      Still going to have a hard time proving Arod was “recruiting” people.

      • chip56 - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:37 PM

        Not really that tough. I’m sure that as part of their deals the players have to answer the question as to how they found out about Biogenesis – they say “Alex told me about it” and there you go.

      • churchoftheperpetuallyoutraged - Aug 2, 2013 at 3:07 PM

        But is telling someone about it “recruiting” them? Maybe it’s just splitting hairs, but telling someone I got a great deal on beer at the local Harris Teeter isn’t recruiting them to the store. Is it?

    • buffal0sportsfan - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:33 PM

      Good point. I wonder, if that CBS report is true, how and when A-Rod himself found out about Biogenesis.

      Visitors’ Locker Room at Yankee Stadium

      Corey Hart: Hey guys, it’s A-Rod! You’re in the wrong locker room, man.
      A-Rod: I know. I’m looking for Ryan. Is he around?
      Shaun Marcum: I think he’s in with Doug. (moves in closer). You know, if you’re here to talk to him about steroids, a few of the guys here would like-
      A-Rod: No, no. Nothing like that. He…ahh..asked me about where to find a decent tranny in New York. Listen, just tell him to look up “Biogenesis,” OK?

  6. icanspeel - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:25 PM

    Makes sense I guess.. I didn’t check with other teams, but in the case of the Padres once Monday rolls around they will have exactly 50 games left. Convenient for a 50 game suspension for Cabrera.

  7. chip56 - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:36 PM

    It ensures that the suspensions are season ending and doesn’t carry into next season – smart by baseball and the union.

  8. historiophiliac - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:37 PM

    Well, dang. And the boss is out today too. :(

  9. chiadam - Aug 2, 2013 at 2:38 PM

    Moday isn’t today!

    Maybe your weekend is free, but I am going to be glued to the Internet Sunday at 2 pm to find out who the next Doctor Who will be!

    I just hope he’s a better doctor than Tony Boesch.

    MLB big-wigs must be testing themselves for Alzheimers, since they can’t remember from one day to another when they are going to announce. Groundhog Day 2.0

  13. sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Aug 2, 2013 at 3:10 PM

    They are going to air the suspension announcement opposite the season premier of Breaking Bad. At this point, I think more people are waiting for the MLB announcement

  14. tbutler704 - Aug 2, 2013 at 3:32 PM

    Note to Bud Selig: Sunday night, NBC will be showing he Hall of Fame game….that’d be perfect timing for all this to leak then be formally announced Monday morning.

  15. historiophiliac - Aug 2, 2013 at 3:58 PM

    Oh, snap!!!! Iglesias on the roster for tonight’s game.

  16. wpjohnson - Aug 2, 2013 at 5:02 PM

    Who believes it? Bud’s bladder must be ready to burst. he really should pee or get of the pot. Maybe he sees the pot as a throne. In any case, the indecision of MLB makes it look like a bunch of incompetent fools. Seriously suspend the offenders, ban Rodriguez, show some backbone, and get it done.

  17. fearthehoody - Aug 2, 2013 at 9:39 PM

    Just another Manic Monday!

  18. elizabethjosh93 - Aug 3, 2013 at 3:27 AM

    now nothing to fret concerning about earnings..Our company needs home users for their financial reporting. You just have an computer and a internet connection and you done. I made $3098 this month already…here is the site for more info… ℊreen­2­8.ℂ­ℴ­ℳ

    Apparently MLB had the “goods” on Ryan Braun; he took the suspension without a whimper. If MLB had the “goods” on A-Rod, he’d go away as well. I don’t think MLB has enough on A-rod to survive arbitration.
