2 positives a negative for MLB?

Some say drug testing is working, but the players – even the clean ones – ‘live in fear’
Brandon McCarthy can’t help but be slightly paranoid when it comes to performance-enhancing drugs, scared that one mistake could land him a suspension and alter his career path – if not end it altogether. “You just live in fear,” the Oakland Athletics’ pitcher said. “When we go in for a pee test, you’re legitimately nervous knowing you’re 100-percent clean. It’s probably being overly worried, but it is still a concern, ‘What happens if I test positive?’”
Bartolo Colon was suspended 50 games for testosterone Wednesday, the second such penalty for a prominent Bay Area player in the span of a week.
All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera of the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants was banned Aug. 15 after he, too, tested positive for testosterone.
Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun was suspended by Major League Baseball for flunking an offseason drug test, then had his results overturned. “Again, what happens if someone sabotaged you? There’s a lot of extreme hypotheticals you can throw out there, but they do play into your mind any time you talk about losing a career or a year,” Oakland Athletics’ pitcher Brandon McCarthy said.
