Ponson's positve test
Sidney Ponson tested positive for stimulants during the 2009 World Baseball Classic and will be banned from international competition for two years. Basically, he can't play in another World Baseball Classic until... the next World Baseball Classic in two years.
Ponson tested positive for Phentermine, which oddly is a weight loss supplement very similar to amphetamines. If there was ever a guy I DIDN'T think was on some sort of crazy weight loss pill, it's Sidney Ponson.
Major League baseball won't suspend Ponson since he will be treated just as a first time offender and will be subjected to a fine. Also because what's the point? Ponson can run himself out of baseball on (lack of) talent alone, he didn't need PEDs.
