Some people never learn: Prentice Redman flunks another drug test

Dodgers minor league outfielder Prentice Redman was hit with a 100-game suspension for testing positive for amphetamine.

The suspension is the second of the season for the 30-year-old Redman, who is currently serving a 50-game suspension for previously testing positive for amphetamine. The 100-game suspension will come into effect when Redman completes his 50-game suspension.

Redman, who played 15 games for the New York Mets in 2003, was hitting .332 with 10 home runs and 41 runs batted in for triple-A Albuquerque when he was slapped with the first suspension on June 25.

Redman should stick to rapping.

On the other hand, Famke Jansen should quit her acting job and help the Dodgers bullpen. Oh wait, it's Famke right? I cant remember his first name.

Mr. Hernandez,

I must take umbrage with your title for this report, unless Mr. Dilbeck or another editor chose it. The words "Some people never learn, Prentice Redman flunks another drug test", is offensive to me and others who suffer from the disease of substance abuse. As we enter the second decade of the twenty first century, it is apalling to see a professional journalist stoop to adolescent descriptions of one of the most serious and brutal maladies that any person can suffer from. Have you no decency, sir? Has no one in your family been touched by the ravages of drugs or alcohol? If that is the case, and you write these words honestly believing that Mr. Redman's decision to violate league regulations was done from a lack of understanding of his actions, I sincerely urge you to visit a 12 step meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous, or any of the myriad hospital based substance abuse programs in Southern California, or Albuquerque, NM, where Mr. Redman has resided. If you are honest with yourself, you may come to a whole new understanding of the pitiable nature of a "self will run riot", of not having the power of choice in regards to these calamatious issues.

I strongly urge you to reconsider these values before penning such a thoughtless imprimatur.

yes this is a nice article i impressed to much after read it.

OK, we need someone in the minors to be traded?

This is the guy if anyone will have him.

stupid is as stupid does

In reference to Dodger Tony's comment, I understand your point and agree with what you perceive as a slight to addicts. However, the point that I get is that Redman's not an addict/alcoholic like Howe/Strawberry/Welch, etc.; but a cheat. He got busted and decided to cheat again. He's stupid.

I grew up with Prentice and find this hard to believe. I hope he gets it together.
