38 Minor Leaguers Suspended: This coming a day after Alex Sanchez became the first Major League player to be suspended for failing a drug test. Looking at the 38 players and their respective teams, it seems to be a team problem with steroids. The Mariners top the list with 8 players, followed by the Cubs with 7. The Athletics, Rangers, and Angels all have 5 offenders. The Padres have 4, the rockies have 2, and the Cardinals and White Sox each have 1 offender a piece. If there is such a problem in the minor league level, how is the problem not ending up at the major league level all the time? Something more than a 15 day suspension and a slap on the wrist needs to be done to these steroid users that are ruining the way the game is susposed to be played.

Sounds like more names are coming from the Florida camps....Really makes you wonder how widespread the problem really is.

Funny how it's 38 minor leaguers and one minor major leaguer in the same timeframe...

Funny how they held off on this "news" until after opening day.... Actually, this was announced on Monday April 4th, which would put it on the official "Opening Day". And even then, the MLB-naysayers claimed it was done so it would get "lost" during the opening day brouhaha. So it looks like MLB was damned if they do and damned if they don't...
