Logan Webb, one of the San Francisco Giants’ top pitching prospects has been suspended 80 games for PEDs. The substance: Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone. Which I dare you to say three times super fast.

The Googles tell us that Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone is an anabolic steroid developed in East Germany for use by their Olympic athletes, does wonders for your muscles, can make women grow beards, and is very hard on your liver. Some people claim that it winds up in supplements made by shiftier manufacturers.

Whatever else you say about Webb, the dude appears to be old school in his choice of PEDs.

Meh, for a true traditionalist, it's the Brown-Séquard Elixir or nothing.

We have a Logan problem in minor league baseball at the moment...

I always get Logan Shore, Logan Webb, and Logan Allen confused... They're all B-ish pitching prospects, roughly the same age, etc. I know I'm being too obtuse by not force-stack ranking them (I suppose that would go Webb-Allen-Shore).... but every time I stumble across news of one of them, I always get confused about "Wait, when did X trade Logan...."

Not for me. It angries up the blood.

I prefer Dr. Hassenpfeffer's Magical Mystical Incredible Edible Brain Tonic.

Just because a word is long doesn't mean its hard to say. Dehydro - easy, chlormethyl - a bit challenging maybe?, testosterone - easy and a pretty common word.

You can have dehydrochlormethyltestosterone without testosterone.
