Nothing groundbreaking. I didn't realize a positive test like that would have no affect on his MLB status. I learn something everyday. :hat

 

Begin with the pot jokes...

Well would international play extend to winter leagues and the touring all-star team?

 

Pretty embarrassing for him. I can't believe it doesn't impact his MLB status though.

Who the hell cares. Why should we suspend someone or get them in trouble for testing positive for smoking weed?

 

...because...it's...illegal?

I'm actually glad that MLB doesn't care about pot.

 

Is the Venezuelan teamstaying together to play exhibitions or something? Other than that, won't have an influence.

I agree. It's not worse than drinking and yes, I know it's illegal but the truth is pot smokers never become agressive, pick fights or drive crazy. The worse they do is slow down, eat, laugh and go home to take a nap. Not exactly a performance enhancer and as long as players aren't high while they're playing I don't care if they were smoking the night before. At least they won't be hung over.

Highly doubt it. He'll be in the next WBC, regardless.
