Slow news day. So slow the drug suspensions are early. From the blotter:

 The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that St. Louis Cardinals Minor League second baseman Brett Wiley has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for an Amphetamine. The suspension of Wiley, who is currently on the roster of the Single-A State College Spikes of the New York-Penn League, is effective immediately.

Wiley was a 13th round pick from last year who has been killing it in the low minors this year, with a line of .308/.395/.462 in 60 games. But what he was doing during those 60 cost him 50. So, bye.

    What’s with the chemical symbols, Craig? Bring back Rachel Leigh Cook, please.

      Absolutely. Craig is messing with a fine tradition.

    Slow news day. That has nothing to do with this story. Or any story of the day. I like to be passive aggressive in reporting the news. So, bye.
