Olney: PED use not always linked to size

Buster Olney says that unless the MLBPA opens up the CBA and gives teams the option to void multiyear contracts for players busted for PEDs, the reward outweighs the risk for players.

It's test time for the 14-7 Nationals, who kick off a 10-day road trip against the Cards, Royals, and Cubs. Gulp. Those three teams have combined for a .625 winning percentage, and a run differential of plus-122. That's a whopping 210 runs better than the minus-88 of Washington's first four foes.

Fantasy owners should not look to drop Dee Gordon. He's still an impactful player and he can produce key stats the final two months. Don't let your anger for what he did affect judgment. And add Jarrod Dyson for stolen bases. Quickly.
