Dee Gordon suspended for 80 games due to failed drug test
My mom used to always say to me, "everything done in the darkness, eventually comes forth in the light."
Today, the chickens came home to roost with Dee Gordon. Miami Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon has been suspended 80 games without pay, effective immediately, for violating MLB's performance-enhancing drug policy, the league said early Friday.
Gordon tested positive for the performance-enhancing substances exogenous testosterone and clostebol, MLB said.
In a statement Friday, Gordon said he did not knowingly take PEDs but was accepting the suspension.
"Though I did not do so knowingly, I have been informed that test results showed I ingested something that contained prohibited substances. The hardest part about this is feeling that I have let down my teammates, the organization and the fans," Gordon said. "I have been careful to avoid products that could contain something banned by MLB, and the 20-plus tests that I have taken and passed throughout my career prove this. I made a mistake, and I accept the consequences."
If what Dee said is the truth, I do feel bad for him in a sense. My biggest question is why even take the chance with these supplements nowadays?

Will the use of performance enhancing drugs ever come to an end in sports?
