Cubs ponder impact of latest Biogenesis report

ANAHEIM -- Should it happen, having the 20 players allegedly linked to the Miami-area Biogenesis clinc suspended by Major League Baseball would have an impact on the other teams, as well.

"You're obviously going to deal with some impact players and some not-so-impact players on the roster," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said Wednesday. "Those impact players have a lot to do with a lot of things."

For example, look how different the Brewers would be if they lost outfielder Ryan Braun.

"When you have 20 [players], it can impact the division," Sveum said.

No Cubs players have been mentioned in the reports by ESPN's "Outside the Lines" regarding the clinic, which is accused of supplying PEDs to baseball players.

"I'm sure it would be out there if there were," Sveum said. "It doesn't look like they're holding any names back."
