Breaking News: J.C. Romero suspended for 50 games.

Monday, January 5, 2009 ·

So, Bud Selig decided to suspend J.C. Romero for 50 games after MLB originally stated the substance he took and purchased OTC at GNC was legal.

While Major League Baseball never said J.C. Romero tried to cheat, the 33-year-old reliever who won the third and clinching games of the 2008 World Series has been ruled guilty of "negligence" and will be suspended for the first 50 games of the 2009 season.

Romero said on Monday that he bought a supplement from a GNC store in Cherry Hill, N.J., last July. The Players Association had told players the supplement was acceptable, but now the Philadelphia Phillies left-hander will receive a suspension and lose $1.25 million.

"I still cannot see where I did something wrong," Romero said. "There is nothing that should take away from the rings of my teammates. I didn't cheat. I tried to follow the rules."
The article on ESPN goes into great detail regarding the case. It seems like a boatload of miscommunication and flopping back by MLB. What do you know, Bud Selig and the big heads of MLB are fucking something up again.

...more on this to come when more is made available. This really puts a huge damper in the Phillies bullpen who is now back to having only one lefty reliever for about 1/3 of the season.

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.
