Vladdy has 3 HRs including a grand slam, 7 RBI so far tonight.

Great for Vladdy and thank God he got himself into peak condition, it is really showing in his performance, not only at the plate but at 1st base as well. His home runs were to all three fields. WOW.

Can't wait for Hernandez and Springer to join the line up and supercharge our offence even further.

The difference between Vladdy this season and Vladdy in the previous two seasons is really remarkable.

We’ve been hearing about him for so long that I tend to think we forget he’s only 22. Most MLB stars don’t really hit their stride until they are 25 or older.

Yeah. For the sake of comparison, his dad didn’t become a regular until part way through his age 22 season.

I don't know what stage this or these accusations are but have we come completely to a guilty verdict without any presumption of innocence?  If he did it fine he needs to be punished, but not much information for us to make up our minds on.

On a brighter note Teoscar is back in the lineup tonight.  Hope Pearson is back soon.

The presumption of innocence is for a court room and is a legal principle. It would be ridiculous to ask that of individuals.

More to the point, for MLB to do this means they've looked into the matter and found sufficient cause to take the action they did.

Again, this is the conclusion of an investigation.
