I’m assuming this is the Brandon Brown who was the 22nd round pick of the New York Mets in 2010. I mean, such a man is unmistakable, no?

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that free agent Minor League third baseman Brandon Brown 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. The suspension of Brown will be effective immediately upon his signing with another Major League organization.

Or, given that Brown couldn’t hit a lick at A-ball at age 24 last year, all of this might be moot.

    I thought these announcements usually came out on Fridays?

    You know, I think today with so much going on all around us, we can really lose sight of a lot of important things about every day life…..like, for example, just how noteworthy a cast She’s All That actually had.
