Bartolo Colon Suspended, AL MLB & MLS Scores: 8/23, Vol. 213, 1st Edition

Take me to the King, I don’t have much to bring; my heart and soul in pieces, is my offering! Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema on Gospel Radio better than when you it yesterday! I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Here We Go!

The 2012 Little League World Series had two on the small diamond yesterday as Japan used solid pitching and strong bats to out power Panama 4-1 and with Cole Carter’s RBI single, it provided Tennessee the 4-3 victory over Texas.
Major League Baseball was jammed packed with 16 total games as I kick off the scores in the American League with the Toronto Blue Jays losing by a run to the Detroit Tigers 3-2, the LA Angels trounced the Boston Red Sox 7-3 with a homer from Howard Kendrick, the New York Yankees was defeated by the Chicago White Sox 2-1 as Chris Sales struck out 13 batters, the Baltimore Orioles were literally spanked by the Texas Rangers 12-3 as Adrian Beltre hit not one, not two, but three homeruns, while the Kansas City Royals got played by the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 as James Shields struck out 7, the Minnesota Twins were hammered by the Oakland A’s 5-1 as Coco Crisp was on fire with a homerun, an RBI double and 3 runs scored and the Cleveland Indians lost 3-1 to the Seattle Mariners as Michael Saunders belts his 14th homer.
Major League Soccer had two games on the grass last night as the Columbus Crew got past Toronto FC 2-1 and DC United cruised to a victory over the Chicago Fire 4-2.
Either Major League Baseball has a major doping problem, as indicated by the Godfather of Steroids Victor Conti or Major League Baseball’s random and routine drug testing is working efficiently.  In either case, for the second time in a week, another player is suspended for violating the MLB’s performance enhancing drug policy and yet again for testosterone.  Oakland A’s pitcher and former Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon was suspended for 50 games for basically cheating.  Colon will miss the remaining 40 games and if the A’s advanced far enough in the playoffs, he will miss 10 games.  Colon released a statement via the players association that read “I apologize to the fans, to my teammates and to the Oakland A's and I accept responsibility for my actions and I will serve my suspension as required by the joint drug program.”  Hmmmm…….a standard statement crafted by the players association since it sound like the one Melky Cabrera released.  So the $80,000 dollar question is, are they sincere??
