Free agent outfielder Marlon Byrd has been suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball after testing positive for tamoxifen, a drug used for breast cancer treatment. Tamoxifen is on both MLB and the International Olympic Committee’s banned list because it can reduce side effects of steroid use (such as breast tissue growth) and increased testosterone production. Byrd, 34, has publicly acknowledged a post-BALCO working relationship with Victor Conte, whose California lab became the epicenter of the largest doping scandal in North American sports history.
I don’t even know where to begin on this one… First, who didn’t see this one coming. Byrd has been bragging about being homies with Victor Conte forever. I can’t figure out if this guy is as dumb as he is a sh$tty baseball player. I’m not even going to go into the fact he’s using a drug associated with breast cancer. That’s a clown move, bro.
