Rick Porcello says Steven Wright owes team explanation for positive drug test

Red Sox starter Rick Porcello is a hardliner when it comes to performance enhancing drug use in baseball. He has, in the past, expressed support for harsher penalties for those who test positive. In 2016, Porcello said, “I’m all in favor for a much, much more severe punishment or a lifetime ban.”

Teammate Steven Wright tested positive for Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 2 (GHRP-2) on Wednesday, resulting in an 80-game suspension. Wright said in a statement, “Although I do not dispute the validity of the test, I was shocked as I have nver intentionally ingested anything for performance-enhancing purposes.”

He did admit that he had to take stuff when he tried to fold his bed into a couch, only to almost break his arms when it turned out not to be that kind of bed….

Steve Wright, Red Sox agree to $1,375,000, 1-year contract

BOSTON- Knuckleballer Steven Wright and the Boston Red Sox agreed to a one-year contract for $1,375,000, a raise of $275,000, in a deal that avoided arbitration.

An All-Star in 2016, the 34-year-old right-hander started the 2018 season late following left knee surgery and a 15-game domestic violence suspension. He made four starts and six relief appearances, went back on the disabled list in late June because of the knee, then returned in September.

Well, at least he can return to the comedy-club circuit if pitching doesn’t work for him….

Sources: Steven Wright likely to be replaced on playoff roster

Turns out that having aging stand-up comedians pitch for you isn’t recommended…..
