What do Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon and San Francisco outfielder Melky Cabrera have in common besides a 50-game suspension for testing positive for testosterone? Well, according to Chicago White Sox slugger Adam Dunn, neither are the sharpest knife in the drawer.
"It's kind of how dumb do you have to be?" Dunn told Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune. "You guys see how many times the drug test guys are here. I feel like they're here at least once a homestand.
"I don't want to call you stupid, but you kind of look yourself in the mirror and it's pretty dumb."
Colon turned his career around this season and was 10-9 with a 3.43 earned-run average for the Athletics this season.
He had won the Cy Young Award with the Angels in 2005 before struggling over the next several seasons due to of injuries and poor conditioning.
Colon released a statement on Wednesday apologizing.
"I apologize to the fans, to my teammates and to the Oakland A's," he said. "I accept responsibility for my actions and I will serve my suspension as required by the joint drug program."
