Major League Baseball hits the (bad) news once again...

 

:DOM Robinson Cano, star player of the Seattle Mariners, gets an 80-game suspension (half a season, the max punishment they can give him for this kind of infraction) for violating the PED (Performance Enhancing Drugs, aka Doping) policy of the MLB...:facepalm::wall:

Too bad he gets such a short suspension, but on the bright side, he will miss almost 12 million dollars in salary :p
