Bartolo Colón Faces 50 Game Ban for Juicing

All right, bad news for baseball: A’s pitcher Bartolo Colón tested positive for “performance enhancing” testosterone, just one week after another huge juicing scandal involving SF Giants MVP Melky Cabrera — over the same substance, no less. Both of them now face a 50 game suspension, which means that Colón, who won the prestigious American League Cy Young Award when he played for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, will sit out for the remaining 40 games of the season, plus 10 post-season games, if Oakland makes it to the playoffs. He’ll receive no pay during that suspension.
