NOTES FROM DOWN ON THE FARM

  • In a shocking revelation, James Houser denies using steroids, but does admit to a “mistake”. Stacy Long speculates that he may have been suspended for amphetamines, but that would not be possible as a first positive for amphetamines is no suspension. A second positive is a 25-game suspension and a third positive is 80 games. [Stacy Long's Riverwalk Talk]

    professor-
    You’re reading the MLB rule – MiLB is 50.

    I have no clue what happened in this case–I have heard of this–millions of kids started school this week–hundreds of thousands of these kids are going back taking Ritalin for ADD–yes if playing in the minors–without proper paperwork–out for 50 games
