Don’t do drugs. It makes you become a near non-entity in all the places that matter:

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Chicago Cubs Minor League right-handed pitcher Pedro Silverio has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Metabolites of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Metabolites of Stanozolol is an oldie but a goodie. Nice to see the kids appreciating the work of their predecessors instead of impulsively taking up the latest, new-fangled and trendy things. This Silvero is a traditionalist, he is.

    Or it could be the Stan is way less expensive and readily available compared to the designer stuff.

    MLB officials became suspicious when they heard that someone in the Cubs organization was striking people out.

    After I saw the headline, I never would have guessed it would be another Latino cheating. 33% of the league population yet 95% of suspended roiders.

      To the dislikers – do you give me a thumbs down because I’m stating a fact. Check it on google or Wikipedia, you may not like it but it’s true.
