07:35 AM ET 01.28 | The Phillies certainly have had their brushes with PEDs before. Enter Marlon Byrd. Byrd, who signed a two-year, $16 million deal to become the Phillies' rightfielder, was suspended for 50 games in 2012 for testing positive for Tamoxifen ... Despite returning from the suspension to put together the best year of his career in 2013, Byrd still gets the PED questions. But he doesn't respond in a defiant or abrupt way. He doesn't mind the line of questioning. "Guys that don't like talking about it are the guys that were trying to beat the system. I wasn't," he said last Thursday in the Phillies' clubhouse. "I was just stupid, I took something, didn't do my due diligence, simple as that. So it's easy for me to talk about. First time I talked about it was easy. ... It's part of my life, it's part of my story."

I predict that the Phils won't get their money's worth on this contract.
