Outfielder Jay Gibbons of the Baltimore Orioles has been suspended for the first 15 games of the 2008 season due to a violation of Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. Gibbons looked drug free last season as he played in 84 games and was 62 for 270 (.230 avg, .620 OPS) with 28 runs scored, 6 homers and 28 RBIs. Gibbons has now played in 779 games in his major league career and he is 724 for 2,787 (.260 avg, .767 OPS) with 348 runs scored, 121 homers and 405 RBIs. The Orioles got screwed by Gibbons who is being paid big money for all of the homers he hit while he was doing drugs, but, the return they get is a clean, untalented without drugs Jay Gibbons.
