Newsflash: Steroids Don't Work

According to Yahoo Sports, Yusaku Iriki has been suspended 50 games for violating the sport's ban on performance-enhancing drugs. Yusaku Iriki's performance had been enhanced by steroids to where, in his most recent appearance, he gave up four runs on 10 hits in five innings, in Norfolk's 5-0 loss to Scranton.

Iriki has been suspended for a test performed during Spring Training, so this
is a major league suspension, with Iriki becoming the first player punished with the new, harsher penalties, as well as becoming the first Japanese player suspended for a positive steroid test at the major-league level.

Most ballplayers today are taking homeopathic hgh oral spray because it's safe, undetectable, and legal for over the counter sales. As time goes on it seems it might be considered as benign a performance enhancer as coffee, aspirin, red bull, chewing tobacco, and bubble gum.
