``I used an over-the-counter supplement that I purchased before the laws banning certain substances changed on January 15th,'' Sanchez said in a statement. ``If I am guilty, I am guilty of not taking the initiative to learn more about the contents of what I was taking.

Interesting spin on the first steroid suspension in baseball history. Might be true, might not be true but either way Sanchez admits to taking a substance that MLB has banned. The article also mentions thirtysome minorleague suspensions for positive steroid testing.

Maybe the MLB should make a list of over the counter substances that would be legal for players to buy. How difficult would that be? They can have some intern write one up in a few hours. Hell I'll do it if they send me a list of banned substances and pay me to do it.

Then no one will have any excuse.
