Dumbass Dee Gordon

Once a Dodgers, always a dumbass

What do you expect from an ex-Dodger? Dumbass Dee Gordon suspended for 80 games. Here is the story 

LOS ANGELES -- Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon, the reigning National League batting champion and a two-time All-Star, has been suspended by Major League Baseball for 80 games for a violation of the league's drug policy.
The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball levied the suspension without pay after Gordon tested positive for "exogenous Testosterone and Clostebol, performance-enhancing substances, in violation of Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program," MLB said in a written statement released after 1 a.m. ET on Friday.
The announcement came minutes after the Marlins defeated the Dodgers, 5-3, completing a four-game sweep at Dodger Stadium.
"Dee Gordon is a very important part of our team," Marlins president David Samson said, "and we all love him, and we support him.
"That said, I do not like, or condone, what he did. He's an important member of this organization and will be for many years to come. It's a huge, huge disappointment. To the kids, to our fans, to his teammates, and to everyone in our organization, who works hard every single day, to put a product on the field and off the field that all Miamians will be proud of."
Gordon, an All-Star the past two seasons, won the National League batting title in 2015, when he posted a .333 average with a league-best 205 hits and 58 steals. He also led the NL with 64 steals in '14, before the Dodgers traded him to the Marlins.
Gordon was off to a slower start this season, batting .266/.289/.340 with six steals through 21 games. However, his RBI single in the seventh inning on Thursday tied the score at 2-2 and knocked Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda out of the game.
Gordon, who turned 28 on April 22, is the son of former big league pitcher Tom Gordon and was a fourth-round pick by the Dodgers in the 2008 Draft. In January, the Marlins signed him to a new contract that was due to pay him $50 million through 2020, with a $14 million club option for '21.
