Baltimore Orioles first baseman Raphael Palmiero has tested positive for steroids. The report, which broke this morning, makes him the biggest name ever to be caught doping in the Major Leagues. Palmiero has been sacked immediately by his club and now faces a two-year suspension, and an additional 2 year ban from MLB after that.
Oh, wait. Palmiero plays professional baseball. So he gets a 10-day vacation and maybe won’t make it into the Hall of Fame now.
Must be rough.
Anyone want to trade my bike for a bat and a bottle of steriods?
