Josh Hamilton Suspended For Drug Policy Violations 

Baseball America is reporting that Devils Ray prospect Josh Hamilton has been suspended for violating major league baseball's drug policies.

I'm having a hard time remembering the last time someone was suspended for drugs in major league baseball...which would seem to indicate how serious Hamilton's problems are.

Hamilton was the first pick in the 1999 draft, selected ahead of Spring, Texas pitching phenom (and current Marlin stud) Josh Beckett. Thought to be a future superstar, Hamilton's career has been de-railed because of injuries and numerous "off-the-field" problems that were never (until now) identified, but were rumored to be substance related.

Hopefully, Hamilton can get his career, and his life, back on track.
