Jose Bautista, the Toronto Blue Jays slugger, has become a habitual victim of drug testing procedures used by the MLB.
The tests for evaluating presence drugs under the name of random drug testing policy conducted by the Major League Baseball are not so random, Bautista said.
Speaking at a recent banquet event in the Dominican Republic, however, Bautista told the attendees that there’s no reason for anyone to be suspicious of his Hulk-like outbreak over the past two seasons. Since, after all, he has been “randomly” tested 16 times for performance enhancing drugs. Yes, that’s 16 times in the course of two years.
Considering that over the previous two seasons he had only been tested three total times, to go along with his 28 home runs in 700-plus at-bats, it certainly seems like said tests may not be so “random.” But then again, that’s the current nature of the game. Everyone is guilty until proven innocent… 20-some-odd times over, and over again. It probably would take another 50 or so negative tests in order for the critics to be quieted down.
The two-time MLB Home Run Champion and newest member of the 50 HR Club was tested sixteen times in two years.
