Mariners' Beckham suspended 80 games after testing positive for PEDs

Mariners' Beckham suspended 80 games after testing positive for PEDs Seattle Mariners utility man Tim Beckham has been suspended 80 games without pay after testing positive for the performance-enhancing drug Stanozolol, Major League Baseball announced Tuesday in a statement obtained by James Wagner of The New York Times. Beckham's suspension will begin immediately. In a statement released through the MLB Players Association, the former first overall pick claimed the positive test resulted from his use of a product that was tainted with the drug in question. "I was given a product from a trusted source, who had advised me that it was safe to take. Regrettably, the product was tainted," Beckham said.

The Giants will move forward almost like they lost a player to injury, think they can fill the void despite inserting players with dissimilar resumes. The early word from the Giants is that they are calling first-round pick DeAndre Baker's injury a knee sprain with more tests coming Monday.

Odell Beckham Jr. continues to believe the New York Giants had ulterior motives for trading him to the Cleveland Browns in March.

Beckham told Ben Baskin of Sports Illustrated that he thought the Giants would ship him out of town even after inking the receiver to a lucrative five-year, $95-million extension.

When the Giants did move on from the star wideout, Beckham says the conversation with general manager Dave Gettleman was a short one. He claims that New York received better offers than what the Browns gave up - one first-round pick, one third-round pick, and safety Jabrill Peppers - but chose to send him to Cleveland, a team that hasn't made the playoffs since 2002.

Browns trade RB Duke Johnson to Texans for 2020 draft pick

Browns trade RB Duke Johnson to Texans for 2020 draft pick CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns traded disgruntled running back Duke Johnson to the Houston Texans on Thursday for an undisclosed 2020 draft pick. A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press that Cleveland is getting a fourth-round pick that can become a third-rounder. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the teams are not providing details of the swap. One of the NFL's most versatile backs in the past four seasons, Johnson had grown unhappy with his role and asked to be traded this year after the Browns signed suspended free agent running back Kareem Hunt.

“I think Gettleman is doing what he thinks is best for the franchise for the long term, and I don’t think I think he’s headed to the Hall of Fame.

The Giants lost for five seasons with Odell Beckham Jr., and they can — and will — lose now without him. But they wuz robbed. And because the Giants are in full-blown rebuilding mode, they should now think long and hard about saying goodbye to Eli Manning.

"This wasn't no business move. This was personal," Beckham said. "They thought they'd send me here to die."

Instead, the Browns enter the 2019 season with 18-1 odds at Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook to win the Super Bowl. The Giants, meanwhile, have the second-lowest odds at 200-1.
