If you’re going to get busted for performance enhancing drugs, you might as well make it worth your while, right?
Former Red Sox reliever Dustin Richardson was suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball after testing positive for performance-enhancing substances. Richardson tested positive for an amphetamine, Letrozole and metabolite, Methandienone metabolite, Methenelone and metabolite and Trenbolone and metabolite.
Richardson, a fifth round pick by the Sox out of Texas Tech in 2006, appeared in 26 games for Boston in 2010, working 13 innings as left-handed reliever. He was traded to Florida after the season for Andrew Miller. He pitched for the Triple-A affiliates for Florida and Atlanta last season.
What a champ.
