>[Fernando Tatis Jr. will be suspended for 80 games, MLB announced. The suspension will cover the remainder of this season and will render him ineligible for the postseason. It will continue into the beginning of next year. On the verge of returning, he's done for the year.](https://twitter.com/JeffPassan/status/1558227695678459904?s=20&t=GbZn0DQ83MQjSMYRgTNaSQ)

what the fuck


AlekRivard

Tatis has got to get his shit together, like cmon...


SeaHempMonster

So disappointing. I can’t even speak


AlekRivard

He had better get some maturity during the 80 games


saylormouth

This is probably the worst non criminal thing he could’ve done. Dude destroyed his entire legacy.


ThatBaseballDude

Only possible way to take over as most hated man in SD from Hosmer. Dumb ass.


SDSU4Lyfe

That spot is still reserved for Dean Spanos

Tritons08

Tatis is a spoiled rich kid who needs to grow the fuck up


espo619

"He's a fast healer"


Timmah73

This is why I'm outraged but not shocked. Somehow in the back of my head I thought he might go there to speed the process up.


verdi1987

I kNOw mY bODy.


scoot87

He's been suspended 80 games https://twitter.com/byrobertmurray/status/1558226773426311168?s=21


NovaPrimeRib

fucking fuck fuckity fuck fucking shit fuck


carbs2vec

Not on my doomer bingo card, fuck.


Agile_Pudding_

Yeah, 80 game PED suspension wasn’t on mine either… go figure.


Puzzleheaded_Key_148

Low key embarrassed to wear his jersey now…bouta cash on a custom Kim jersey let gooooooo


niglacious

highkey man......Kim is my SS


JRS433

Doesn’t get shoulder surgery, crashes a motorcycle, and then takes PEDs in a year and a half. I don’t think that there’s any way that his contract extension could look worse. Honestly, I’m *really* annoyed with Tatis. Dude is a HOF talent and looks like he’s on track to throw it away


JustLo619

He just threw it all away. He went off the rails.


scoot87

I did not expect this form of Padresing...ugh


ace-destrier

Profoundly disappointing series against the Dodgers after historical trades but we gradually find solid, confident footing against the Giants and climb out of a pit of despair Only to *DROP* into a new, *dark* pit of despair This feels fucking awful


NovaPrimeRib

Nah man this isn't Padresing. This is on him and him alone.


chickentowngabagool

this franchise never fucking fails me


WadeCountyClutch

It’s not the franchise, it’s this dude!


AlekRivard

Pain


WhatTheBlack

Might as well just schedule him for the shoulder surgery now and get it out of the way instead of putting him on the 10 day IL every other month next season.


Agile_Pudding_

Had the same thought, can we get that out of the way? Yikes.


ClevelandBrownJunior

He's already said he's not getting it.


IamMrT

I don’t give a fuck what he wants at this point, we gave him $340 mil to not pull this shit.


[deleted]

Dude. Wtf!!!


WhatTheBlack

Manny gonna light that ass up


FishyFish5

Seriously. And he deserves every second of it. Manny is our King, Soto is now our Prince.


Evilsmile

And Wil will always be Myers.


Heelincal

Wil Myers


Ninjahkin

I wish I could be present for that roasting. It would be a next level bro-to-bro moment


Monteflash

And that’s why Manny is the MAN on this team. Not some fool “face of the franchise”


JayceTopGG

having to hear about that on apple tv blows


dead-serious

Yeah I need thoughts from Don Mud and Scan to process this fully for myself. Fucking disappointed


ace-destrier

And we won't stop hearing about it. And neither will the rest of the guys. It makes me livid. Even though they'll do their damnedest to not let it be a distraction, it is. I'm furious for them


chargerland

He needs to grow the fuck up


CanEatADozenEggs

Fucking annoyed. The guy is clearly a moron, not afraid to say it.


PinkPantherParty

Yup, stupid as shit. Needs to grow the fuck up and fast


chargerland

He is so selfish and immature and you'd think he'd learn, but it's just getting worse. If he wanted to stop being so selfish, getting the surgery everyone recommends would be a good start.


pachauaia

Yup, he wants to be a superstar but isnt willing to make the sacrifices. Hopefully manny will tear him a new one and get his head straight.


crlos619

Dodgers have new ammo to clown us now. Fuck.


Monk_Philosophy

I will clown the shit out of Tatis for this, but Padres fans don’t deserve this.


IMEUF

believe me when I say dodger fans will clown padres fans even more now 😂


93sd2021

You’ve got to be fucking kidding me


beoyeah

Jesus Christ. Can the Padres somehow break his contract and give it to Soto? Wish it was possible. Gah damn


Winnie1776

There are character clauses and all kinds of risky behavior things these days they talked about how it was an option with the motorcycle accident. Void that shit renegotiate it and use the saved money for Soto. I love Tatis but we can’t count on him.


ThePuzzledPanda

Yup. For $340 mil it’s pretty damn reasonable to expect a player to be available. Missing a year and a half because of dumb decisions isn’t acceptable. He’s not ready for the responsibility


RTHREEB

Morals clause maybe


front_page_hata

Their best chance was after the motorcycle accident


[deleted]

This guy is running a clinic on how to ruin your career


TheRealCyEllis

![gif](giphy|3o7abspvhYHpMnHSuc)


Hvitrulfr

Friendship ended with Tatis. Soto is my best friend now.


upper_decking_king

Please meme this right now


lnv21

What an idiot


kuttysnark

Is it, and bear with here, is it possible that when he fell off of his motorcycle he landed on some Clostebol?


[deleted]

Tatis doesn’t have the maturity or integrity to be the face of this franchise. This is so disappointing.


DLR87

Maybe Soto does


judojoker

Soto definitely does.


droozer

Soto is the player every fan, owner, gm, whoever wants on their team. Whoever ends up with him long term will be the luckiest fanbase in the league


corybomb

Machado will always be our leader.


vladwaltmicknjudge

This is very true and sad. Maybe this shows what happens when you are too good at an incredibly young age. Idk. I am a huge fan of Tatis Jr., but now I am only getting more disappointed each day.


ThePuzzledPanda

I remember when we signed him, and he was talking about a statue next to Tony. Yeah right.


JohnnyChee

With each passing day that Tatis quote sounds more and more like the time Ryan Leaf was talking about "a 15 year career, a couple of trips to the Super Bowl, and a parade through downtown San Diego"


Truth_overdose

Completely tarnished any legacy after this, being an idiot is one thing but now also a cheater, lost all respect for him


AlekRivard

Was he taking it to help rehab or something? The fuck...


[deleted]

I’m assuming he was taking it to help recover faster.


nomad1c23

The drug doesn't help with recovery. Clostebol is purely for performance.


chargerland

So do we think he only started recently? Maybe because of the lockout? Because he has a ton of pop and if he's been juicing all along it's extremely frustrating


lifeispain760

Cano’s Mentorship or maybe he’s always been doping. He seemed too good to be true for us.


GuyFierisBleachedAss

Let’s be real honest, he’s juicing after getting $300 million. He’s probably been juicing his whole career and this is just the first time he’s been caught.


chargerland

Yeah, that's what I'm wondering... I would assume with testing you would get caught pretty quick, but maybe not


usctrojan18

Well, there goes this season and any chance of him in the hall


verdi1987

It's like he doesn't understand the consequences of his actions.


DriftlessAreaMan

On a positive note, Kim gets to keep his job.


Thumper13

What the fuck? What the ACTUAL fuck? Sign Soto immediately. Make him the face. I love Tatis, but I'm starting to worry about that contract. FUUUUCCK!!!! I emotional right now and I'll likely have a better opinion later. FUUUUCK


ThePuzzledPanda

I’m overreacting right now but between the injuries, motorcycle shit, and this I wouldn’t be heartbroken to trade him and make Soto the face with a fat extension. One of the most fun players I’ve ever watched just throwing it away with dumb shit


One_Capital_7973

No team is going to want his 350 million dollar contract after this news.


blackroseMD1

Fuck.


GuyFierisBleachedAss

That’s it. Fuck you Tatis. I could stand behind you being a fucking dumbass, but not a fucking cheater.


JohnnyChee

On top of missing a season plus, he's gonna have steroid stank on him for his whole career now. Fuck


skipv5

And now he won't ever be considered for Hall of Fame either. Ruined his career.


bibi_da_god

I wonder if the padres will reconsider voiding his contract. 340 million for a guy who can't get on the field due to his own selfish antics.


MacDerfus

Nah, do one worse: trade him to the Angels.


Worried-Equivalent69

I'd absolutely void the contract if it's possible. It's going to be one thing after another with this asshole.


One_Capital_7973

I don’t think it’s voidable. If there is some clause that we can though, we should absolute utilize it. Immature childish shit man.


cXs808

I'm pretty sure that if someone is taking PEDs on their own outside of team oversight you can void it. Usually those types of things are written in contracts nowdays thanks to A-Rod fiasco.


secretlyloaded

It would free up some cash for when we pick up Ohtani in '23


fangsalwaysout

Lol dunno about that one


secretlyloaded

A man can dream, can't he?


geeving

That shit is going to follow him for the rest of his career. I can’t believe this. So fucking disappointed


kevtorres123

80 fuckin games.....what a bum.. gonna hurt us into next season. Fuckinnnnn ridiculous.


Lonelan

only through April not good, but not as impactful as missing him this year, anyway as long as not playing for ~1.5 years doesn't hurt him...


Neither-Impress6372

Just reported. Facing an 80 game suspension…


sfr18

How the hell are you gonna get fired on your day off?


Soundslikeright

No fucking way lol


skinisgleamin

and to think, this organization has stuck by him through all his immature ways. through everything, and this is how he repays us????


[deleted]

[удалено]


skinisgleamin

this idiot. through everything, i thought he’ll mature he’s still a great player maybe this IL stint will teach him. what was the need?!?!?!


HenryTPE

MF already got his 340M bag. WHAT’S THE POINT OF THIS. All he had to do was get healthy and come back. Now he’s ruined his reputation, lost money, and ruined Preller’s deadline master plan. At this point, fuck him and his terrible decisions one after another.


sgt_dismas

I would guess and hope it was to recover faster if it was intentional.


dan_buh

Looked into it, doesn’t seem like it’s to help recover, looks like it’s a full blown steroid for performance


sgt_dismas

Yeah I saw the second tweet after I posted that. What the hell, Tatís.


skinisgleamin

i hate that. as much as i obviously wanted him back on the team for playoffs i always thought, don’t rush. let him heal at his own pace. id rather have him fully ready than halfway or by some halfway clears by medical professionals.


sgt_dismas

That wasn't even it. It was a full blown anabolic steroid.


dan_buh

These guys know every single thing going into their bodies. It was intentional.


Lawlosaurus

It’s clostebol which is basically synthetic testosterone. It’s the same drug Freddy Galvis and Dee Gordon got popped for


[deleted]

I knew Freddy Galvis couldn’t have that much pop naturally.


chargerland

He could have recovered faster by discovering the fracture like 2-3 months earlier, if I'm not mistaken


corybomb

Embarrassing that I stood up for his ass. Thought he was just young and immature. Nope, also a cheater.


mackmai

Bruh wtf


Dday22t

So 48 games this season and 32 next season. Won't see him until May 2023.... assuming he doesn't do something stupid in the meantime and end up being out longer (big assumption at this point). He cost himself, but also cost all of his teammates a better chance to win.


dead-serious

curse our perfect climate, scenic environment and laid back relaxed attitude culture we can never have nice things


Jmanbabeslayer

Sign Soto and paint over the Tatis mural with Juan Soto. Tatis is a disgrace


norcalginger

Fack


JasonH8695

lmao just our luck


TatisSotoMachado

He’s an embarrassment to San Diego.


niglacious

time to change accounts friend :(


Puzzleheaded_Key_148

Rip username


IMB413

Strike 1: Not getting shoulder surgery despite all the experts recommending it. Strike 2: Getting in a motorcycle accident and not getting proper medical care, despite being a multimillionaire Strike 3: Taking PEDs How many swings does he get?


TheNextBattalion

Was strike 3 a foul ball?


lnv21

Roids


SDYeti

So when do they just cancel his contract? Surely between the motorbike BS and this they can find cause.


danburrus555

And that’s the end of his season.


hungovercyclist

…and beginning of next season


sc_eveleigh

His contract should voidable…


PsychicWarElephant

can we trade him for all the guys we just traded to the Nationals, and make Soto the face of the franchise? I'm honestly kinda done with Tatis and his bullshit.


TheAggravator

I have lost so much respect for Tatis. Honestly, after this I can’t support this dude any longer. Machado is the leader of this team and he’s gonna have to carry the team. Tatis just isn’t it!


dead-serious

also, someone bring up that pic of his huge ass in San Antonio. he did look quite JACKED


WillingWillingness8

*Brewers fan.* I was surprised how fast I forgave Braun. 😳


genghisjohn187

Braun was so much worse because he tried to get that dude fired


Truth_overdose

From everyone’s favorite player to hated player in just 12 months, could it get any worse. What an idiot


madmacks

Preller: "I think we're hoping that from the offseason to now, that there would be some maturity. And obviously with the news today, it's more of a pattern and something we've got to dig a little bit more into. I'm sure he's very disappointed but at the end of the day, it's one thing to say it. you have to start by showing it with your actions."


bluebomber726

Dammit


sc_eveleigh

This kid is fucking blowing it.


crlos619

no HOF for Tatis :(


ThePuzzledPanda

Not acceptable and no longer my favorite player. Injure yourself being reckless in the off-season and then pull this shit? Come the fuck on


BobTaco

It wasn't even HGH or anything to help heal, it was Clostebol which is a flat out anabolic steroid. I'm very upset by his choices made recently.


haiimjeff

I guess having Robbie Cano on the team was a bad idea after all.


espo619

How much did dad know?


Thedurtysanchez

You think he did this without support from his father? His father was likely the connect to the dealer.


PrisonaPlanet

Started as the next Derek Jeter and now he’s gonna be the next A-rod… you know what? Fuck this kid, I might not mean it in the future but for now? Fuck him, got his payday and couldn’t care less about being a fucking professional. This is so unbelievably frustrating and infuriating.


sc_eveleigh

Lets count the red flags: Bangs the same girl Bauer got caught up in. Machado of all people has to get him to think less about himself. Stupid ass motorcycle adventures in the offseason. PEDs What a joke. One after another.


Starhawk1106

Bro?!?!?!?!?! WHAT ON EARTH WERE YOU THINKING?!?!?


Familiar_Plankton_30

Next score- Tatis passes Spanos as the most hated man in San Diego. What a fucking asshole.


Dday22t

Not going to lie: I was already a little skeptical about his judgment after the motorcycle accident. This just confirms he is a dumb ass. Unfortunately, trying to lock up a young super star long term before they got close to ever being a free agent backfired big time on the Padres. We will see what happens long term, but right now Tatis is looking more like a cautionary tale of what not to do than anything else.


[deleted]

Padres are legitimately cursed.


eye_panic

You can defend Tatis from the broken wrist injury by him just being young and a dumbass. There is no defending cheating. Fuck him and I hope they get rid of him somehow. He will always be labeled a cheater


TatisSotoMachado

I fucking hate Tatis. What a piece of shit moron. Crashes motorcycle, misses 100+ games, a week from coming back, gets suspended 80 games for roids. Get rid of his ass. Trade him for anything. Rip up his extension. I hope we win this WS in spite of him then DFA him. Can’t believe I’ve bought the fam like 6 Tatis jerseys and my kid’s room is covered in his fatheads, posters, blankets etc. Embarrassing.


septemberxv

Nope too late BoMel already said August 18th. No take backs MLB sorry.


FriarForEver

Imagine this whole time he's been using.


HappyAd173

Exactly! Ruined bro


wsju1234

There’s gotta be something in the contract to void it if that’s the case


PurpSamsquanch

Fuckin end me


jgftw7

not good


sdfanupthe5

NOOOOO


jaketheknight

Are you fucking shitting me?


padreswoo619

AaronfromCalifornia

Goddamn it, Fernando. This is fucking inexcusable.


RichAf26

I’m so sick of Tatis. Can’t drive a motorcycle and takes steroids. What a waste


youarefartnews

We should consider whether we should paint over the mural


kevtorres123

Now THAT is Padresing. Smh.


Agile_Pudding_

Please, for the love of god, tell me we’re reached peak Padresing, because I can’t take much more.


[deleted]

What a fucking idiot. I might be done with him


jiggyjiggycmone

Almost threw away my #23 hat. Instead it’s just shoved into some dark corner. Dude single handedly got me back into baseball. Man this hurts.


GeneralKen0C

Hosmer slipped something in his drink on the way out


unclejohnsbearhugs

I'm sick


SouthPawJB

Time to take a serious look at voiding his contract.


hydratar

why did god make me a fan of this team


soyov

Dudes I'm bummed and I'm a giants fan. Wanted to see the trio for the last 3 games of the season


MEGA_gamer_915

Idk about y’all, but this makes me want us to win a World Series more than ever before. Let’s get our ring while Tatis rides the PED ban. Let him sit and watch the rest of the boys play solid, fun, championship winning baseball. Let him be the only one in the lineup next season without a ring. Let him know he’s gotta be in it to win it.


gortat_lifts

Thought he looked too jacked!


jjak34

????


flcv

Jesus fucking christ


ChillSauce35

Why....Why can't we have nice things?! My theory is Papa Tatis had him on the good good- Senior was definitely on the junk back in the steroid era. We better make sure Profar is off his cycle after 'working out' with Senior in the offseason.


cakirby

I hate being a fan of the Padres and Angels, my god


Quintossentials

Shit, maybe we are truly cursed. It's comically the only logical explanation of why such fuckery keeps happening to us.


Impossible-Potato218

What an absolute selfish, entitled little prick. I could go on and on but this further proves he has never been the leader of this team and never will be.


Spirit_of_98

This year's team is probably the best team Fernando will ever get to play for, and now he will sit out the entire year.


MEGA_gamer_915

My hot take is that this makes the Soto deal way less appealing. We didn’t pay out farm system and voit for Soto; we paid for the value of having Soto in-between Tatis and manny. Having Soto is nice, but all the guys we sent washingtons way were nice too.


YPG13

He was literally being propped up to be the face of the league. Bringing in the new generation of players being flashy and fun to watch. Getting rid of the boomer baseball era and growing the game amongst the younger crowds. Now he’s going to get booed and called a cheat at every park he visits


mackmai

Is this a stipulation that allows us to get out of his contract? Awful…


areagrae

We could have likely technically voided the contract after the motorcycle accident too lol


rivaltor_

i actually give up


Surf_Padres_Beer

I can’t feel my legs rn


houseofmagic

Bro gonna have so much time for motorcycles


qwantry

You can’t disappoint me, I’m a padres fan


CaptainTurbo55

Never wearing a Tatis Jr. jersey I can tell you that. What an embarrassment to the team, one thing after another with this guy and zero fucks given by him it seems.


Scuba_98Steve

Dodgers fan here’ I’m really sorry guys. This hurts Edit: as a baseball fan this hurts the entire community. Always sucks to see a good player getting a suspension for something that could’ve been avoided.


FishyFish5

He got busted for steroids, synthetic testosterone, and was given the league max suspension, meaning that all evidence they had was enough without question, that’s a very positive failure. It can be a steroid to rub off and cause false positives, but there’s no way you’re getting 80 games for that. This is a statement by the league, this was also unfortunately, look intentional on Tatis’s behalf. I could NOT be more disappointed then I am right now, for the sake of not getting him back. He truly is, the gift that just keeps on giving, both positive and negative. What a sad fucking day, especially since I thought he was returning to his boy Soto any minute. (Downward head shake).
