The Phillies just won the World Series and Romero, a Phillies reliever, had a huge hand in that. He won Games 3 and 5 of the Series and now he won't be working for a while.
Here's a quote from the story as you can see Romero is pissed. It seems as though he got hosed.
Three months after Romero was tested before a Phillies-Mets game on Aug. 26, the Players Association sent a Nov. 21 letter to players that stated, "We have previously told you there is no reason to believe a supplement bought at a U.S. based retail store could cause you to test positive under our Drug Program. That is no longer true. We have recently learned of three substances which can be bought over the counter at stores in the United States that will cause you to test positive. These three supplements were purchased at a GNC and Vitamin Shoppe in the U.S."
So how does this work? Since he is suspended for using illegal drugs does that mean his wins aren't eligible? Do we have to play more World Series games?
This is the never-ending Series. Maybe the Rays have a chance.
But which team does Pat Burrell now play for?
