Two players in the union Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie and Dodgers pitcher Chris Capuano told ESPN.com that agreed they believed the drug testing system was working as expected. Theres always something to be gained by using steroids or performance-enhancing drugs, and some players are going to feel like its in their best interests to take that risk, Guthrie said.Dallas Cowboys Snapback Hats But I still think 50 games without pay is significant, not only in lost wages but in lost potential wages for a player. During the second half of the season, then-Giants outfielder and now Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera, Athletics pitcher Bartolo Colon and Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal each failed PED tests and received 50-game suspensions. Cabrera, however, devised a fake website with the intention of justifying his elevated level of testosterone. His suspension hurt his case in free agency as Cabrera settled on a two-year, $16 million deal with Toronto instead of earning an All-Star type of payday.47 Brand Snapback Hats When we see a person test positive, like Melky Cabrera, all of us as players are like, How does that happen? How do you think youre going to get away with something now? Capuano said. We all get tested randomly. I wont even take fish oil or a multivitamin from a supermarket unless its certified for the sport. We ask our trainers and strength coaches about anything we take. Just the notion that theres a small group of players who still think they can stay ahead of the curve and get away with stuff comes as a surprise to me and to the majority of the players. For the first time last year, the players association agreed to allow testing for human growth hormone in spring training. miami heats snapback
