UPDATE

Statement from Cameron Maybin:

“I have been undergoing treatment for several years for a medical condition, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), for which I previously had a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE). Unfortunately, in my attempts to switch back to a medicine that had been previously ok’d, I neglected to follow all the rules and as a result I tested positive. I want to assure everyone that this was a genuine effort to treat my condition and I was not trying in any way to gain an advantage in my baseball career. I understand that I must accept responsibility for this mistake and I will take my punishment and will not challenge my suspension. I apologize to my family, friends, fans, teammates, and the entire Padres organization. I look forward to returning to the field and contributing to the success of my Club.”

This season is getting old quickly *sigh*

You mean every season…

It is Cameron Maybin’s second offense. First offense had verbal and written warnings, additional testing and treatment. So I am not saying Maybin is lying but I am saying he is full of f***ing s***.

If this is a prescribed medicine for a valid therapeutic use, why wouldn’t the team doctor be involved with the alleged medicine switch with a past history of amphetamine related suspension? Im wondering if it was even prescribed because his appology stated that he made the switch, not his physician. You can’t blame that on ABBD (hypoactive bat and brain disorder).
