Edinson Volquez has been suspended for fifty games for use of a performance-enhancing substance.

When it rains, it pours, Reds fans.

Of course, Volquez wasn’t going to be playing in the next fifty games anyway, so what it comes down to is (1) loss of pay for Edinson and (2) bad publicity for the Reds.

UPDATE: According to WLW, Edinson says a Dominican doctor prescribed medication to help him and his wife start a family. Those meds were also an MLB-banned drug.

I don’t know if that’s true or not, but it would change things, I guess. I can’t really get too worked up over this either way. Who cares?
