Ok. If it is his second, why is he getting only 50 games vs 100?

Justin Reed. OF was a early round pick a few years ago. High School human tool shed. Not a swing made for contact. Was in Sarasota and was demoted to Billings 30 or 40 games ago.

The drug policies in professional baseball are a joke.

Is this "drugs", not "steroids"?

I've heard that the failure probably wasn't a result of steroids. If you're ever in Billings they have the best drugs in the west :rolleyes:
