Jorgensen suspended

Catcher Ryan Jorgensen was suspended for 50 games for violating Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

That's obviously why he wasn't called up Sept. 1. The release from MLB did not specify what banned substance the suspension was for.

The Reds would not comment beyond what was in the MLB release.

Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire,Josh Hancock, Scott Spezio, Rick Ankiel, Drunk Drivers in spring training.....the common thread here?
Tony Larussa.

Why would anyone want this cheater.
He'll most definitely be available this offseason. No way the Reds should get him. are you listening Castellini?

Rotoworld claims it was not steroids

[i]Jorgensen's suspension isn't related to performance-enhancing drugs. [/i]

John, when Krivsky was on the radio with Doc the other day he said Jorgensen wasn't called up due to a personal committment. would he not have been better off just saying he couldn't comment on it at the time but would soon when he was able. and don't you think Krivsky kind of insults your intelligence with some of his answers?

"I'm glad that MLB is going after cheaters like Jorgensen". I think that was a quote from Barry Bonds.

RIGHT ON! Managers and GM's have been getting a pass for far too long on this issue. Everywhere Larussa has been, there have been suspected steroid users. He needs to be called out on it. Why won't the press do it?
