Old school drugs suspension here: Stanozolol! Who takes Stanozolol anymore?

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Miami Marlins Minor League right-handed pitcher Ronny Fermin has received a 50-game suspension after testing positive for Metabolites of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Fermin is a rookie leaguer. Word on the street is that Tommy Lasorda thinks he ruined the game.

    Stop defending A-Rod Craig. It sickens me. Really. You are blogging’s greatest monster.

    Meanwhile 7 Seahawks served steroid suspensions this year. And no one cares.

      Which is exactly how many people should care.

      Actually, it’s 6. Since 2011. And one of those was thrown out. But, who cares about facts or the truth right?

        Can you imagine what would happen if 6 players on one MLB team tested positive for PEDs????

    GO. BACK. TO. THE. RACHEL. LEIGH. COOKE. PICTURE.

    “Fermin is a rookie leaguer. Word on the street is that Tommy Lasorda thinks he ruined the game.”

    Damnit Craig! That’s my schtick! Joke thief! I demand reparations!

    People generally don’t care about the NFL suspensions because the users aren’t making a mockery of the record books

    I had a drink with Stan O’Zolol last Saint Patty’s day. Seemed like a nice enough guy. And he paid.

    (hic!)
