Exactly one week after the MLB announced that Melky Cabrera has been suspended 50 games for a positive drug test, A’s pitcher Bartolo Colon was handed the same punishment. Like Cabera, Colon tested positive for testosterone. Unlike Cabrera, whose posse reportedly created a fake website in an attempt to cover up the test, Colon released a statement apologizing to the fans and taking responsibility for his actions.

A’s starter Brandon McCarthy’s wife, Amanda, now wants to make sure that she won’t get Brandon in trouble with the MLB if she gets him a free trial ExtenZe:

Hey @mlb, extenze is offering a two week free trial that I want to get @bmccarthy32… That’s cool with the PED rules, right?

— Amanda McCarthy (@Mrs_McCarthy32) August 22, 2012

For those of you who are somehow unaware, ExtenZe is a sexual enhancement drug that is supposed to add length to a man’s…well, you know. Amanda McCarthy obviously has a tremendous sense of humor, and I recommend following her if you’re looking for a good laugh — particularly at Brandon’s expense. As far as ExtenZe resulting in a positive drug test is concerned, I doubt it. But with the way things have gone over the last week or so, I probably wouldn’t risk it.
