Carlos "Chooch" Ruiz was suspended for 25 games for testing positive for Adderall.
More like Subtracterall. Because that's what Major League Baseball should do to his salary.
Subtract it all.
Ruiz's felonious decision to use drugs for which he had no prescription or other legitimate use let down his teammates. It let down his coaches. It let down the GM, Ruben Amaro. It let down the fans.
Most importantly, it let down the children.
Children are the future of the country. Without the children, we are nothing.
This is why Ruiz should be banned for life.
Really, he should be put in the stocks where the children he harmed can hit him with sticks and produce, but as that's still illegal in most of the country, baseball will have to settle for a lifetime ban.
Why should drug users get more chances? They knew the rules before they popped the pills, and they did it anyway.
Ruiz flagrantly disrega...
