Blah Blah Steroids: Jorge Reyes

New York Mets' minor league pitcher, Jorge Reyes was suspended Tuesday for 100 games by the commissioner's office after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, for the second time.

There hasn't been anyone stupid enough to become a repeat offender up until now. Reyes is the 12th player to be suspended for violating the minor league drug policy and of course, the first to enjoy a 100-game suspension for a second dumb move.

Reyes, a 22-year-old Dominican, made only one start this season for the Class-A Savannah Sand Gnats, allowing no runs on four hits in five innings of work.

What a waste.

They should just dump his ass.

Yeah Kerrie, make an example out of Reyes. A 100-game suspension is a good example for other players on what not to do, but there will always be some that feel like they will never get caught.

I'm not sure if there is a sure-fire way to stop this whole mess.

I agree, dump his ass. Get rid of Mota while they're at it. This Mets fan doesn't want to see this team tainted by this BS. To be honest, the rule should be do it once and you're gone for life, period.

"The primary cause for lifetime banishment, according to the Commissioner's office, is that the banned person violated or otherwise tarnished the integrity of the game."

How many chances does a player get if caught gambling on baseball? Steroids doesn't tarnish the integrity of the game?!
