On January 6, 2009, Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher, J.C. Romero was given a 50 game and a $1.25 Million suspension for testing positive for steroids. The problem is, that Romero (and Major League Baseball) has admitted that all he took was an over-the-counter supplement. MLB is suspending Romero on the grounds that he was negligent in not knowing what was in the supplement. Romero contends that he checked with both a team strength coach and a personal nutritionist before taking the supplement, and has not accepted the suspension reduction because it will mean he will need to admit guilt.
