As the Biogenesis suspense builds … two more minor league suspensions

Brian Cashman probably wishes Bud Selig would STFU with all of these routine minor league suspensions and get with the business of solving his A-Rod problem. Oh well, maybe over the weekend.

For now:

Atlanta Braves Minor League right-handed pitcher Humberto Carpio has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for metabolites of Stanozolol.  The suspension of Carpio, who is currently on the roster of the Dominican Summer League Braves, is effective immediately.

Cincinnati Reds Minor League outfielder Yoel Noel has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for a metabolite of Nandrolone.  The suspension of Noel, who is currently on the roster of the Dominican Summer League Reds, is effective immediately.

The Dominican Summer League: the league that keeps on giving.

    Yoel Noel is my new favorite name.

      I NEED to hear it pronounced.

      Is it Yo-Ell No-Ell?

      Is it Yole Nole?

      Is it Yo-Ell Nole?

      Is it Yole No-Ell?

      Is his middle name Joel?

      Please tell me his middle name is Joel.

      WE NEED MORE INFORMATION!

        You must be growing immune. You actually read the text next to the picture.

        Look at the time stamp.

        I spent ten minutes looking at the picture.

        You crack me up.

        I don’t know if that’s intentional or not….but because of the commercial that was crazy clever.

      • historiophiliac - Jul 26, 2013 at 9:21 PM

        I am not *that* clever. Lucked into that one.

    Noel was hitting .141/.198/.235 with one homer in 85 at-bats, so I guess he was doing it wrong.

      Sounds like Lasik probably would have been a wiser investment.
