Is this tweet a load of BS or not?
Anonymous Source: Cano, Granderson, A-Rod and Braun will all be suspended for failing PED test this season.

Why believe a guy whose biggest accomplishment to date is beating his editors in beer pong?
Well last summer, Joe somehow had the scoop on Melky Cabrera’s suspension three weeks before MLB announced it.
My sources tell me that Melky Cabrera will be suspended soon for violation of MLB's PED policy

Maybe Joe is trying to muster up fans for Dog and Pony Show.
His Melky tweet, about his pending PED suspension, could have just benefited from Father Time.
Joe claims he received a text last night stating, “Guess which four MLB players are about to be suspended for PEDs?”
This happens to be the same source that leaked the Melky news, at least that what Joe says.
But why believe some Joe want to make MLB into a dog and pony show?
Here is Joe’s response:
“You guys are all right, I have no credibility. I can’t even name my source for you. One of the worst things about the internet is that any idiot can write any nonsense and post it as “news”. I wouldn’t have even read my own story unless it got picked up by ESPN or Yahoo or some other reputable sports website. I’m not a journalist. I’m not fuckin’ Peter Gammons, or Buster Olney. I’m a guy who took one journalism class 100 years ago in college. When I write about sports here on DAPS I’m exclusively writing editorial pieces meant to amuse other people like me and hopefully provide them with a take on stuff they haven’t heard before. The most popular feature I write includes a picture of an attractive woman at the end so that people will actually read it.”
Ok Joe, explain to us Yankee fans how this tweet from November 21, 2012 was a joke, but your most recent is not?
My "sources" tell me Derek Jeter and Jose Bautista will be informed by MLB they will be suspended for failed PED test

FYI…. That certainly didn’t make me laugh.
Bottom line here is whether this Joe is running a real dog and pony show or not.
