There have been dumb players in our lifetime and in baseball history. Some may say that Alex Rodriguez was pretty dumb, lying on ESPN that he was a changed man only to be caught using PEDs and suspended for a full season in 2014.
Some may say Shoeless Joe Jackson and Pete Rose were dumb. After all, gambling is an addiction, but some see it as greed.
But listen, I think if you're 26 years old and a pro baseball player, and you've read about and lived through the steroid era, and you know there are strict rules against PEDs, and you're trying to make it in the Bigs, and you STILL USE and get caught more than once, you gotta be the dumbest player ever. And that's what Jenrry Mejia is. Dumb. He's just dumb. Dumb, DUMB, DUMB, DUMB, DUMB, DUMB, DUMB, DUMMY. My opinion of course.
Ironically, when Mejia was previously caught, we wrote YOU BIG DUMMY!
That was in July. It's astonishing to me that players still use. What's worse is Mejia is now banned permanently. That's right... LIFE!
Breaking right now, we can report that Mejia tested positive for Boldenone. Boldenone is considered an "old school" PED. Clearly he was looking for something to help him and being DUMB, he doesn't even know what the hell he's taking and hoping something from yesteryear would fly under the radar. Wrong. Here's an idea... go squeaky clean, we'll all respect you more!
This is now the third offense against Mejia, and that means his life in baseball is officially over. He's banned forever.
The New York Post writes: "Mejia is allowed to apply for reinstatement from the lifetime ban in one year, but must miss a minimum of two years."
But let's face it... that's a long time to think about how foolish you were and who the hell knows if this guy would ever even try to be reinstated. Plus, who trusts the dude now? Not me.
I just can't believe it. You work your entire life to become a Major league ball player, any boys dream. Mejia had a ton of potential, the Mets loved him and they were looking forward to him getting back on the hill for them, and he slaps them in the balls with this.
You know what? 3 strikes and you're out, pardon the pun. As Paulie said to Henry Hill after Henry lied to him and asked for a couple bucks to get back on his feet...
"Now I gotta turn my back on ya."
Later Bitch. Hope it was worth it.
