    That sucks.

    I don't really care that guys smoke weed, but it is pretty stupid to risk 50 games over it.

    I don't know. Bagwell might have spoken to him in the past so there's now a link to the steroid era.

    The fact that the MILB punishment for pot is on par with the punishment for PEDs is a slight problem. Just a slight problem.

    For weed? You would think he used PEDs if he is going to get 50 games. Feel sorry for him. Too bad it isn't legal here in Texas yet.

    Well that sucks. I was expecting him to get called up half way through the season.

    Like others have said I'm glad it wasn't PED's, and 50 games for pot seems like BS.
