    Sadler tests positive

    link

    Sadler suspended: Arizona infielder Donnie Sadler was suspended for 50 games after testing positive for a drug of abuse under baseball's minor league program.

    Sadler, 32, has played for the Red Sox, Reds, Royals, Rangers and Diamondbacks in eight major league seasons.
    Now his tenure with the Reds is stained forever with questions. *

    I bet we all feel foolish now to have been excited about the great homerun chase between Donnie Sadler and Neifi Perez.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    One of my all time least-favorite Reds. Goodness I used to hate it when he was at bat.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    Probably resorted to banned substances in an effort to hang on to the last vestiges of a baseball career.

    Sad, Sadder, Sadler.

    The one home run he hit in 2001 off Shawn Chacon in Colorado is tainted now, but at least it doesn't affect the results. The Reds lost 14-7.

    Compared to Sadler, I'd rather see Castro batting cleanup.




    Okay maybe not, but I still loathe Donnie Sadler.

    I am very shocked at this. I had no idea Donnie Sadler was still in baseball, much less the major leagues.

    His first few years in the league he was Norris Hopper. On steroids. That should say something about Norris Hopper. Sadly.

    "drug of abuse" doesn't sound like steroids to me..
