Blue Jays 2012 first-round pick Marcus Stroman banned for 50 games

Should the Vancouver Canadians have wins taken away from them?

Toronto Blue Jays prospect Marcus Stroman, the No. 22 pick in this year’s amateur draft, was suspended 50 games Tuesday for violating baseball’s minor league drug program.

Stroman, a right-hander with Double-A New Hampshire, tested positive for Methylhexaneamine, a banned stimulant. Stroman, who played college ball at Duke, received a $1.8 million bonus when he signed with Toronto last month….

Tampa Bay outfielder Joshua Sale, who was at Class-A Bowling Green, was penalized for testing positive for methamphetamine and an amphetamine.

The 21-year-old Sale was drafted in the first round (17th overall) in 2010. He was hitting .264 with 10 homers, 44 RBIs and a .391 on-base percentage in 74 Midwest League games this season.

Yeah, but that thread is about "Breaking Bad". This gives us another chance to discuss these two first-round picks!

What, another 50 games on top of the suspension he got when we posted this the first time? That seems excessive.

Hank Aaron disagrees.
