Free agent OF Marlon Byrd has received a 50-game suspension after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.



Tested positive for Tamoxifen, which I believe is a masking agent for PED's. Guess the Sox picked a good time to jettison him then...

Well this means the whole season is tainted, right? Not a very useful acquisition.

I wonder if he's friends with Manny Alexander.

Score one for the "PEDs don't make you better at baseball" crowd.

It would be funny, though surely implausible, if he was doing this behind Victor Conte's back.

This is like the tree falling in the forest and does it make a sound with nobody around, right?

Tweet below, Middlebrooks is AL player of the week.

First Manny now Marlon. Who says the Red Sox doctors don't know what they're doing. We have the best PED hiders in the business.

Unfortunately for Marlon, who's to say this didn't happen?

Tamoxifin isn't a masking agent, but it is the most widely used/core component in the pct portion of a steroid cycle, which is run immediately after you cut off the juice and in order to bring one's natural test levels back up. Basically it's mandatory stuff among experienced/educated cyclers, and the one area of use that people trying to stay one step ahead of the testing game haven't found a way around yet (or at least not one that i'm aware of).

"I made an inexcusable mistake," the statement said. "Several years ago, I had surgery for a condition that was private and unrelated to baseball. Last winter, I suffered a recurrence of that condition and I was provided with a medication that resulted in my positive test. Although that medication is on the banned list, I absolutely did not use it for performance-enhancement reasons."


Nice try there, but see you in 50. Well, if you ever see the bigs again that is.

It's possible he already had it.
