Conditions in Dominican League Still So Backward that Trainers Haven't Learned to Mask Drugs

That's the news out of Blood Selig's office, where MLB has suspended two unknown prospects, one of whom was listed as Yank beef.

New York Yankees catcher Damian Taveras and Baltimore Orioles pitcher Ambiorix Suero were suspended for 50 games each Monday after positive tests for banned performance-enhancing substances.

This is the real story:

Both players were in the Dominican Summer League. Forty-two of 69 suspensions announced this year under the minor league program have involved DSL players.

Yeesh. Can't anybody down there sell clean pee?
