Therefore, I will amend Major League Baseball's Minor League drug policy, effective for the 2006 season. First-time offenders will be suspended for 50 games. Second-time offenders will be suspended for 100 games and third-time offenders will be permanently banned from Major League Baseball and all Minor League Clubs who are affiliated with Major League Baseball.

I think it's pretty clear what he wants the MLBPA to accept...

Ol' No. 2

I think it's pretty clear what he wants the MLBPA to accept...That's all well and good, but IMO, it's a bigger priority to add blood testing for a wider range of the newer "designer" substances that urine tests don't detect.
