The Game Ain't Clean Yet

Kinda fitting that this would come out around the same time as Clemens indictment... Marlins catcher Ronny Paulino has been suspended for 50 games after failing a drug test.
Paulino tested positive for an unspecified performance-enhancing substance and his suspension begins immediately, MLB announced Friday.

Paulino is the second major league player suspended for drug policy violations this year but the first one who will actually miss time because of it. The Reds' Edinson Volquez drew a 50-game ban in April but he already was on the disabled list after undergoing surgery last year and didn't return to the field until after the All-Star break anyway.

According to Biz of Baseball, 75 minor leaguers have been suspended for drug violations this season.
When are these morons going to get it and stop cheating?

I'm starting to think it's time for MLB to implement a one strike and your out rule. Maybe then these players will wake the hell up.
