PSA Comments of the Day 2/13/16: Set the stage and atmosphere

It was Saturday night, the moon was bright shining

Major League Baseball issued its first ever permanent ban for PEDs yesterday. Already serving a 162 game ban for failing a drug test a second time, Jenrry Mejía of the Mets tested positive for Boldenone and received a permanent ban from MLB. He's allowed to apply for reinstatement after one year, however he can't be reinstated until he sits out at least two years.

Besides the fact that this was his THIRD failed test in less than a year, the worst part is that Boldenone is apparently one of the more easily detectable steroids.

Well there you have it. I'll turn to PSA's own Greg Kirkland to sum this matter up:

Yup. Well at least pitchers and catchers report soon. In news related to the Yankees, the team avoided arbitration with closer Aroldis Chapman for the 2016 season. The team will pay him $11.325 million, which is closer to what he should be paid than the $9 million low-ball offer they were going into arbitration with. Either way at least they came to an agreement. Go baseball!

Comments of the Day

Well done, indeed. Although calling him old seemed unnecessary.

GIF of the Day

Riiiiight. That's why bat day is just for kids. Thanks for the reminder, Harlan.

Honorable Mod Mention

Andrew, Tanya, and Jason win for sharing with all of us Pinstripe Alley's Top 20 prospects. Check it out!

Fun Questions

  • Do you agree with Aaron Judge being the top overall prospect in the Yankees system?
  • Take this quiz. What new song should be your jam this weekend?!

Song of the Day

Saturday Nite by Earth, Wind, & Fire

It's the end of Earth, Wind, & Fire week on Pinstripe Alley. This week we looked back on some great Earth, Wind, & Fire songs as we paid tribute to the loss of band founder, Maurice White. And seeing as how today is Saturday, this seems like the most apropos way to close this week out. The moon will be shining bright! As always, please link us your song of the day.

Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Any big Saturday nite plans?
