    Here is the list....

    Seattle's Damian Moss and Ryan Christianson were among 38 players suspended Monday for violating baseball's minor league steroids policy, a group that included eight players from the Mariners' organization.

    Seven of the 38 positives came from the Chicago Cubs organization, five each from the Los Angeles Angels, Oakland and Texas, and four from San Diego. There were two from Colorado, and one each from St. Louis and the Chicago White Sox.

    It would be nice if the major leagues had the same testing program as the minors.

    You can blame the players association for that.......Major League Baseball can only do so much under the CBA.

    Another one gets caught....

    When are these guys going to realize that if you are a no name player and your taking roids, your more than likely going to get caught.

    I just think the no name players just don't have the money to buy the good undetectable drugs. I can bet most of these fringe players are getting nailed for stuff they bought at GNC and other stores like that not realizing that a small ingredient in the stuff is on the banned list.

    If you are a named player and have been in the majors the last 2 years you knew this was coming. So of course they stopped juicing and the players that can afford it went to the undetectable stuff. If you don't, you just get smaller like a ton of players have done over the past 2 years.
