    What's to say he wasn't on them before he got called up?

    I thought I woke up in The USA this morning.What the heck happened to innocent untill proven guilty?

    Shouldn't we wait untill we hear the whole story before we pass any sort of judgement?

    Steriods or High are not the only things they test for.

    Maybe he messed up and made a mistake the likes of which he never made before. Who knows what happend?

    I think I'll wait awhile longer to brand this kid with whatever mark y'all want to burn him with.

    no im saying when they said he had personal obligations, i was like WHAT? what guy that might never get another chance to play MLB, going to do something else for a month when he can get paid pretty well that the personal obligation could have waited.. thats what i am referring too.. no idea if what he did was here or in the minors.. im saying before we heard about the suspension

    Re: Jorgensen suspended

    per rotoworld.. its not related to performance drugs

    "MLB suspended catcher Ryan Jorgensen 50 games for violating the Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.
    Well, this explains why he wasn't called up to act as the Reds' third catcher this month. Jorgensen's suspension isn't related to performance-enhancing drugs. He'll miss most of the first two months of 2008."

    If my count is correct, Jorgensen becomes the fourth player under the Reds employ to be suspended under the JDP&T program.

    It doesn't matter. He was on the Reds forty man roster and was subject to MLB testing.

    I can think of a lot of reasons that I'd blow a pro-rated MLB salary.

    Not yet. I'm not affixing one to Glaus, just in case you were wondering. Has either failed a drug test yet? Has either been convicted of possession/distrubution yet?
