I disagree with this theory. His contract is guaranteed so it doesn't matter what his production is when relating his play to his contract. To me his positive test actually contradicts your point in that it tells me that he actually cares a lot about winning and would do anything to be on the field; even if it means masking something. I totally get the negative reaction to this, and most of it is well deserved. If there ever was a silver lining to this its that we have an aging ballplayer with one of the fattest contracts in baseball still focused on playing at a high level. Although I wish he never did this because I think he has the talent to excel above most, I find a little positive in that we didn't end up with a Josh Hamilton.
