    We should get to see McCurry pitch once or twice in the coming week. I think he's going to kick ass.

    Yeah this is correct. And let’s be honest it’s not like MLB players are sitting in class having to listen to a lecture for an hour...

    Attaboy, it's refreshing to see him take accountability. You can also tell from the way it's written that he wrote it himself, I don't think a publicist did that for him.

    I'm guessing he meant "in light" instead of "in spite"? Also incorrectly uses "effected" instead of "affected", although he uses it correctly later.

    I'm concerned . Adderall ( beyond recreation) acts as a powerful stimulant and helps keep you focused and can cause you to lose weight .

    What if some of his body transformation was due to drug use ?

    In his apology, he should have owned up to what he took and for what.

    If he has a medical condition, he needs an exception to take the prescribed drug.

    I speculate it's not a one-time thing or it would not have appeared in his urine or blood.

    The suspension was so unfortunate. If he had started the year on time, and been lights out since, he would have been that much closer to the real deal.

    But things as they are, he looks good out of the gate and hope it continues.

    If Whitley is promoted to AAA by the minor league allstar game break, he is on track.

    I suspect if they deem Whitley ready to pitch in September, he will be on the roster by August 31.

    No. Some drugs would cause it, but several writers have said Whitley is eligible.

    I wish Forrest and Kyle Tucker were on the postseason roster last year and gotten those rings, it's rare to win a Championship.
