Report: Some 20 baseball players may face suspension

Major League Baseball is set to suspend some 20 players in the coming weeks due to a scandal involving performance-enhancing drugs, according to an ESPN report.

The network says it is potentially the worst drug abuse case in the history of baseball. The league declined to comment to CNN, but confirmed that an investigation is in the works.

Baseball's highest-paid player, New York Yankee Alex "A-Rod" Rodriguez, as well as Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers are among those facing suspension, ESPN said, citing unnamed sources. Both have denied using performance-enhancing drugs, or PEDs.

    As far as I'm concerned, Professional athletes, who are nothing more than talented entertainers, should be allowed to anything to increase their performance..........."Tommy John " surgery included.. There are either amateur unpaid athletes, subject to certain agreed upon rules, or a professionals who works for a living and get paid to perform! This witch hunt is nothing more than superfluous BS!

    'talented entertainers' is right, look at the money involved. The more the 'dope' the more will they entertain.

    This is just stupid. People take college courses to advance their career in technology. There isnt much difference really. You do what must be done to make your employability better in the field in which you work. Whether it be acting classes, college courses or p.e.d's!

    A doctor at an asylum decided to take his patients to a baseball game.

    For weeks in advance, he coached his patients to respond to his commands.

    When the day of the game arrived, everything seemed to be going well. As the National Anthem started.......the doctor yelled, "Up Nuts" And the patients complied by standing up.

    After the anthem ...he yelled, "Down Nuts". And they all sat back down in their seats.

    After a home run was hit, the doctor yelled, "Cheer Nuts". They all brokeout into applause and cheered.

    When the umpire made a particularly bad call against the star of the home team, the Doctor yelled, "Booooo Nuts!!!" and they all started booing and cat calling.

    Thinking things were going very well. The doctor decided to go get a beer and a hot dog, leaving his assistant in charge.

    When he returned, there was a riot in progress. Finding his assistant, the doctor asked," What in the world happened? "

    The assistant replied, "Well, everything was going just fine till a vendor passed by and yelled PEANUTS!"
