    Re: Jorgensen suspended

    I am sorry to hear this. His first ML hit and the grand slam were enjoyable to me as a baseball fan. I wish Ryan Jorgensen the best in coming back to professional baseball.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    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.

    Nope but they did get busted with receiving HGH. That's enough for me. Rick Ankiel is a cheater.

    Perhaps, but as far as we know, he's the first of those four to interact on this site.

    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.

    Heres me wondering what if. Any chance the thread that was removed from the minor league forum had anything to do with this suspension? Very interesting indeed.

    Very typical for people to "jump the gun" in judgment. At this stage it has not been made public whether it was performance enhancing or recreational drugs.

    Jorgensen suspended
    Catcher violated Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program
    By Mark Sheldon / MLB.com

    http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/news/...=.jsp&c_id=cin

    CINCINNATI -- Major League Baseball announced on Friday that catcher Ryan Jorgensen was suspended for 50 games for violating the league's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.
    Jorgensen was with the Reds from Aug. 14-26 and played in four games, batting .200 with two home runs and six RBIs. The 28-year-old batted .237 in 73 games this season for Triple-A Louisville.

    On Aug. 15, Jorgensen's first big league hit was a homer vs. the Cubs at Wrigley Field. On Aug. 26 vs. the Marlins, he hit a grand slam before being optioned back to Louisville when David Ross was activated from the disabled list.

    When September callups were announced earlier this week after rosters expanded, Jorgensen's name was not included. The Reds said at the time it was because of personal reasons.

    It was not known if Jorgensen tested positive for performance enhancing or recreational drugs. He joined the Reds organization after being acquired from the Marlins for a Minor Leaguer in March 2006.

    Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky declined to comment on the situation.

    "The Cincinnati Reds support Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program," the club said in a statement. "Ryan understands the rules of the program and will serve the appropriate suspension."

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Well, no they haven't. They haven't been "busted" for anything yet. It may be enough for you, but I'd prefer some more information before labeling someone as a cheater. And even if the published reports are true, Ankiel received his last shipment of Saizen and Genotropin in 2004. Those drugs weren't added to MLB's list of prohibited drugs until 2005. As of today, he's guilty of nothing.

    Wow! Really? What was his screen name so I can do a search for his posts. That's pretty cool to have a member of the Reds organization posting here.

    If the JDP&T is working correctly, then you should never know what drug was being taken specifically. But as we've seen, that isn't the case. As far as "jumping the gun" on Jorgensen though, unless I'm mistaken, the penalties for Drugs of Abuse are different from the penalties for Steroids: read PED's (including HGH). A fifty game suspension means only one thing. Ryan Jorgensen failed a test for PED's and not a for test Drugs of Abuse/"recreational drugs".

    This makes me sad. I like him, and he seems to have a lot of upside.

    You must be forgetting what team's site you are posting on. This is the Reds. Of course he has a lot of upside. But seriously, I wouldn't have minded him being the 3rd catcher next year at all. By 3rd I mean the guy that gets called up when one of the other 2 goes down. I don't mean the 3 headed monster that WayneK employees.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
