Discussion Question: Jordan Schafer

New, 69 comments


Discussion Question for you:

Should Jordan Schafer's suspension for using human growth hormone hurt his prospect status, and if so, by how much? I gave him a Grade B+ in the book. Should I reduce that?


Officially I'm reducing him from Grade B+ to Grade B, looking at the HGH controversy as akin to an somewhat significant injury that keeps him out of 50 games. At this point, we simply don't have any idea how much, or how little, HGH was responsible for his impressive performance last year. Maybe it was a big factor, maybe it did nothing at all. NO ONE KNOWS. We have to see what happens when he comes back, how he adjusts, as much emotionally and psychologically to the scrutiny as anything.
