New York Mets after serving three drug suspensions.The 29-year-old right-hander from the Dominican Republic was told in July by baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred that he could return to the big leagues in 2019.Mejia was suspended for life on Feb. 12 http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , 2016, after his third positive test for a banned steroid. The drug agreement allowed him to apply a year later for reinstatement that would be effective a minimum of two years after the ban started, with the decision at the commissioner’s discretion.Mejia was the Mets’ closer in 2014 and was suspended for 80 games on April 11, 2015, following a positive test for Stanozolol, a drug popular among bodybuilders. At the time, he maintained http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , “I can honestly say I have no idea how a banned substance ended up in my system.”Mejia returned on July 12, appeared in seven games for New York, then was banned for 162 games on July 28 after a positive test for Stanozolol and Boldenone. The third suspension was for a positive test for Boldenone, an anabolic steroid generally used by veterinarians on horses.Mejia is 9-14 with a 3.68 ERA in 18 starts and 95 relief appearances. In addition to random drug tests, he is subject annually to six additional urine tests and three additional blood tests.He has four years, 140 days of major league service and would have been eligible for salary arbitration. The Mets could have tried to cut his salary to $1,383 Mark Melancon Jersey ,200 had he remained on the roster. A new project aims to make baseball accessible to everyone."If you asked my opinion (and I know you didn’t) I’d say baseball doesn’t have a pace-of-play problem (at least not entirely,) but rather an education problem, and a passion problem. That is to say, I think the bigger issue is that many people who have the “baseball is boring” mindset have never truly been exposed to the rich traditions of the game, and the little nuances that make it interesting from pitch-to-pitch. These things are not in any curricula of course, but are passed on by passionate fans.I bring this up because one of the smartest and most passionate baseball fans I know of has taken it upon herself to do something about the education part.Friend of Twinkie Town Ashley MacLennan has written for Fangraphs and the Hardball Times, and is a huge part of our sister sites Bless You Boys Deion Sanders Jersey , DRaysBay, and Bleed Cubbie Blue. In other words, she’s been around the whole covering baseball thing for a bit, but now she has a new project that I’m really excited for — a youtube channel.I asked Ashley about the project, and she told me “The whole premise is to make baseball accessible for everyone, I’ll be explaining the ins and outs from basics to advanced stats to history and I’ll actually be doing a Target Field video this summer!” The channel will formally launch within the next couple weeks (she says “in March”) with new videos on Tuesday and Thursday. They’ll be short (5-10 minutes each,) and I’ll be watching for sure. I’ve embedded the channel’s preview video below Alen Hanson Jersey , so check it out, and get ready for a great resource for new baseball fans to learn the game, old fans to have a great time, and everything in between.
