David Pauley, who’s currently at Triple-A in Seattle’s farm system and has pitched in the majors for the Red Sox, Mariners, Tigers, Blue Jays, and Angels, has been suspended 50 games for a “drug of abuse.”

According to MLB the 50-game punishment comes as a result of this being Pauley’s second violation for an undisclosed substance.

This season alone the 29-year-old right-hander spent time in four different organizations, posting a 6.48 ERA in the majors and a 3.14 ERA in the minors when he wasn’t residing on the waiver wire.

    Lance Armstrong lost his medals for “doping of abuse”.

    This comes on a Friday evening, so I guess it’s too early for the “this proves drug testing has failed” rants from certain media members. Maybe they have the weekend off, or will be too busy opining on the big Red Sox-Dodgers trade.
