On May 28, 2008, Humberto Cota was suspended 50 games for failing a drug test. Humberto Cota!!! For crying out loud, MLB should be screaming from the rooftops that this is what happens when you take roids, not suspending this bum for taking them. Can you imagine how bad Cota would be without taking preformance enhancing drugs?

Cota has a .233 batting average with twelve home runs in 519 at bats, over seven years. Oh yeah, MLB, Cota is the problem! Catching him, no pun intended, will clean up the sport. Hate to see Humberto get away with this. Need to make an example of him! Ozzie Guillen was right when he asked, how come the only players suspended for roids were marginally talented hispanic ballplayers?

Note: Roid Poster Boy, Barry Bonds, hit exactly 750 more career home runs than Humberto Cota. But baseball is showing it’s serious about PED’s, you’re doing a helluva job, MLB!

  1. I did a little more research about Cota being suspended and this is what I found.

    Cota was penalized under the major league drug program, even though he has not been on a major league roster since last June 15, when he was released by the Pittsburgh Pirates. The reason he was covered by the major league plan rather than the minor league program wasn’t announced.

    “I want to make it clear that I did not use any banned substances in order to improve my performance,” Cota said in a statement released by the players’ association. “In July 2007, I had season-ending surgery performed on my left shoulder. During this past winter, while I was a free agent, my shoulder was slow to heal. I took substances that were prescribed for me by a doctor in Mexico.

    “I believed I was taking anti-inflammatory medication that would help my shoulder heal. What I did not know at the time was that these substances would cause me to test positive under MLB’s drug policy. I have learned that I should only rely on medical care provided by U.S.-based doctors. I apologize to my family, my teammates, the fans of Major League Baseball and the Rockies organization. I know I will be more careful in the future.”
