Cameron Maybin Suspended 25 Games

This may actually improve the Padres terrible offense.

It was announced today that OF Cameron Maybin has been suspended 25 games for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

In a statement released by the team, Padres manager Bud Black said that “Our club fully supports Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. Cameron has accepted full responsibility for his violation and apologized to his teammates and coaches. We are all looking forward to his return.”

The suspension begins immediately and Maybin will be eligible to return to the Padres’ active roster on August 20th, when the team is in Los Angeles for the second game of a three-game series against the Dodgers.

For those who don't want to bother clicking the link: He tested positive for ADD meds. He switched to a previous prescription and did not follow the proper protocol with MLB for doing so.

I guess that explains why Francoeur got promoted.

So no greenies?? That takes the fun out of it.

This will really kill any chance the Padres had for the post-season, I guess.

Surely anyone required to stay awake during Padres' games deserves a therapeutic exemption.

Headley (.651) and Maybin (.654) significantly helped the Padres' team OPS (.609). They might not regress to a normal-bad offense after all.

But amphetamines don't help you cheat. That's what all the old guys tell me.

All these AD/HD prescription are just a legal way for players to take speed, right?

Nah, the point is that players still use speed, they just call it AD/HD meds.

I'm sure a lot of MLB players do use AD/HD drugs for other than their intended purpose. Whether Cameron Maybin is one of them, none of us can say.

I little while ago I heard Aubrey Huff on the radio discussing his continual efforts to keep getting permission to use different AD/HD drugs. Said it was widespread and that it was absolutely performance-enhancing.

Well, that oughta keep Aubrey Huff out of the Hall of Fame, then! Some character he had!!

For God's sake, giving the kid joints is not going to help his drug problem...!

What? Oh.

Never mind.

Particularly interesting when coming from a player like Huff who quite publicly struggled with mental and behavioral health issues during his playing career.

And personally cost the 2009 Tigers a playoff spot. DIAF.

(Yes, I'm still bitter.)

So guys like Maybin have to take drugs in order to pay attention?

Then I guess that explains what happened to Adam Jones...maybe he's off his ADHD meds?

But does he get to keep the records he set?

Milt Pappas will now rest easier.
