Romero’s Supplement Caused FALSE Positive

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer this morning, Provient, the company that makes the supplement JC Romero was taking, revealed that their product contains NO illegal or banned substances.  It does have an ingredient that may cause a FALSE positive result though.  Therefore, Romero is totally innocent.  There was no warning on the label, he had the supplement approved by both a trainer and the Players Association, and now, the company that makes 6-Oxo Extreme has admitted to the fault.  Provient even submitted the information to MLB but they still stand by the 50 game suspension and refuse to budge.  You can read the full article HERE.  This is truly sickening. 

I agree that MLB needs to stand strong behind their drug policy, but when they are wrong, they need to admit they are wrong.  In the real world, mistakes are made every day.  MLB has a chance to correct this one and do the right thing, but still they choose to be stubborn for fear of looking weak.  So now they just look like a bunch of ignorant, uneducated fools instead.  I believe JC should sue to both get the bogus suspension lifted and for tainting his reputation and hurting his family and teammates.  With the arbitrator previously ruling against him, I do not know what his options are at this point, but someone really needs to stand up for him.

Please, if you have not done so already, go to the following web sites and sign the petitions for over-turning  Romero’s suspension.  Save JC Romero – Lift His Suspension; and Reinstate JC Romero.

Thank you!!!!!!

I never even heard this report come out, now I’m outraged!
MLB needs to clean up their act. How can they claim to want to clean up baseball when they do it like drunken cops in a donut shop?
If J.C. was trying to cheat WHY would he have asked permission from his trainers and the Player’s Association?
This is blasphemy!

Scott, there’s a simple reason for this, and it starts with the letter C. Congress. Congress, with their showboating, embarrassed Major League Baseball, and the clowns in charge are trying to show the clowns in Congress that they have cleaned up their act. As far as I’m concerned, they are only showing themselves to be even bigger clowns if this false positive is true, as well as being incompetent and stubborn idiots by refusing to admit they’d screw it up. As far as I’m concerned, MLB needs to show the test results and have an independent lab test it to see whether what their own lab was correct or a false positive mistake. Of course, the chickens won’t do it, afraid that the possibility of being shown for the clowns they are will mean another call in front of Congress.
