Great, there goes D.J. Driggers and Yonquelys Martinez’s Hall of Fame chances. It’ll be up to the Veteran’s Committee for them!

Free agent Minor League outfielder Darren (D.J.) Driggers has received a 50-game suspension without pay after a second positive test for a Drug of Abuse in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Free agent Minor League right-handed pitcher Yonquelys Martinez 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.

I like that Martinez went with Metabolites of Stanozolol. It’s an oldie but a goodie. Gotta have respect for those who respect what their elders did back in the day. It shows appreciation for the old ways.

    Let me be the first to say it – Craig, wrong picture!

      Craig, Craig, why hast thou forshaken us! Bring back Ms. Cook (or is there some sort of copyright issue about which your corporate masters are making trouble?)

    Isn’t “free agent” technically the same as “unemployed?” If so, didn’t the FL supreme court just ban drug testing the unemployed? I think the kid should call ARod’s lawyers and get this thing overturned!

    Drivers didn’t use a PED so he can still get in. (Not making a judgment. Only recalling Fergie Jenkins.)

    Appreciation for the old ways? That would be amphetamines.
