Sounds like he would be a great mentor.   :shrug:

Sverluga’s book said Soto patterned himself after cano, hopefully not to the PED extreme.

How?
By definition.  It's all a matter of your perspective.  They hired Cano as a cheater and it tainted the entire organization.  My perspective is that the Mets enabled him to continue to be the cheater that he's always been.  They let him "do his thing".  Now they're being rewarded, which is just wrong.

That is a strange viewpoint. I was unaware that baseball teams are able to enable cheating so much.

6-3 basically said all teams are responsible for their players' PED use. Sounds like a bit of a stretch to me.

Unless there is as much evidence of the Mets helping Cano take PEDs as there was of the Astros helping their players cheat, not sure why teams should be held responsible. If anything, teams should be able to voids parts of contracts of PED users

Just saw that.  Might as well give up on the division now.
