With all the talk of A-Rod, Manny, and Sosa taking PED's a story like Geovany Soto's is nearly swept under the carpet. What story you ask? The one where the Chicago Cubs catcher tested positive for marijuana. It is true that smoking weed won't enhance your performance, but the shit is still illegal. From the pothead- "While I fully acknowledge my inappropriate behavior, I want to assure my fans and my family that this was an isolated incident. I do not say this to minimize or deflect from my conduct and I fully understand the ramifications of my actions. I have and will accept any and all consequences. I am fully dedicated to the game of baseball and my teammates, and I apologize for any distraction and embarrassment this may cause them." MLB may not punish him, but dammit the NFL sure bent Ricky Williams over and gave it to him numerous times.
Another dumbass player has gone and injured himself. The r-tard culprit this time was Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Jeff Bennett who took on a door. Just like Muhammad Ali, the door won, breaking Bennett's hand in the fight. 15-day DL stint followed.
