Wade, on Einertson

"I don't know what more we can do to make sure these kids are aware that they have to be clean and stay clean and that the testing program is here for a purpose," Wade said. "There's a punitive mechanism in place here, and for him to fail a couple of tests to get to the point of being suspended for 50 games is disappointing.

"I'm hoping not only he learns the lesson, but any other kids learn the lesson that if you're not going to follow the rules, you're going to get suspended."

So, what are the rules on teams releasing players that have been suspended because of positive tests? I get the fact that we don't know exactly what he tested positive for but you have t wonder how long the Astros will put up with this from him.

That's a good question. I'm not sure there's anything they can do. I would imagine when it's time to re-up, the Astros will certainly take this into account.
