Quinn says its no "big names"Per a report on ESPN: Several players are expected to receive a suspension for PEDs
Major League Baseball is expected to announce in the next few days that another player has tested positive for the steroid Turinabol, a drug that was commonly used by East German athletes in the 1970s. The positive test is one of a handful being processed, two sources familiar with the cases told Outside the Lines, meaning it's all but certain that more announcements will follow.
Everyone who tests positive should give mlb everything in their medical cabinet and request that it be tested. If they truly believe they are innocent, that is.I wonder if there is a contaminated supplement out there. MLB players are instructed to only use NSF certified product approved by MLB, but thats no guarantee they are clean. Nobody in their right mind uses that drug if they have to face testing, its just says in the system too long and that's no secret. Maybe some minor league kids who make 10K a year and can't afford anything better, but not MLB players

Dr. Don Catlin, an antidoping pioneer in the United States who ran the drug testing lab at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, said Turinabol was easily obtainable online. He added that it was contained as a labeled ingredient in at least one supplement that can be bought off-the-shelf. It is also possible that the steroid is contained as an unlabeled product in a supplement, he said.
“I suspect somebody got a big supply of it somewhere and has been distributing it among friends and neighbors,” Catlin said. “One guy gets it and feels it’s working and tells all his buddies. Next thing you know, you’ve got a miniepidemic.”
That Turinabol has shown up in supplements sold in America means some athletes may have unwittingly taken the drug. To be safe, Canadian authorities have warned their Olympic athletes to stay away from supplements sold in the United States, said Dr. Bob McCormack, the chief medical officer of the Canadian Olympic team.
Fuck that guy. A friend of mine was one of the hotel security guys that night here on Maui. He beat her badly. He belongs in jail.Jose Reyes year gets even worse, he is reportedly expected to be suspended at least 60 games

"I took an over-the-counter medication, [Subrox-C], which I bought in the Dominican Republic to treat cold and flu symptoms. I failed to read the labeling on the medication or consult with my trainer or team about taking it and did not know it contained a banned substance. I tested positive for that banned substance, with a minuscule amount of Clenbuterol in my system, which could not have possibly enhanced my performance on the field, and now must face the consequences of that mistake.
MLB and the MLBPA reached an agreement to drop the suspension from 80 to 50 games after Mondesi showed the banned substance in a cold medicine, according to the New York Post's Joel Sherman.
