Potential fantasy impact of Biogenesis 

July, 19, 2013

It’s a shame that the Biogenesis scandal will remain in the news this week, next week and probably for many weeks, overshadowing the games we’ve missed. The games mercifully return Friday night, but we’ll still be hearing and reading about several of fantasy’s finest having their names reportedly and unfortunately involved.

I’d prefer to deal with WAR than this war, but since so many queries in my Twitter feed are asking about it, here’s my take: Even if MLB does, as expected, announce suspensions any minute now, they aren’t likely to take effect in 2013, due to the player’s union doing everything in its considerable power through appeals and perhaps other processes to drag things out.
