"I am very angry and disappointed with Major League Baseball's decision to suspend me," Betancourt said in a statement.

It was a weird statement. It would have made more sense had he said he never took any illegal substances. But he never said that. He just said he was gonna appeal and that it was a bad decision by the MLB.

Luckily he's on the DL right now so he won't lose any play time anyway, just money.

A kick ass relief pitcher for the Tribe.

He's a workhorse. Has thrown the most innings out of the pen that last 2 seasons and manages a 2something era. Hmm, any shock he was on the roids?

Oh, come on, people. Does anyone really believe that Rafael Betancourt is the biggest name in baseball currently taking steroids?

It's a joke.
