They claim that Sir Sidney tested positive for a stimulant:
Kansas City Royals pitcher Sidney Ponson tested positive for a stimulant during the World Baseball Classic and has been banned from international competition for two years.
Major League Baseball will not suspend Ponson. Under the drug rules, he will be treated as a first-time offender and is subject to a medical review and fine.
The 32-year-old Ponson pitched well for the Netherlands last March in the WBC and later signed with Kansas City. He is 1-5 with a 7.27 ERA for the Royals, and is currently on the disabled list because of a strained right elbow.
The International Baseball Federation said Ponson tested positive for Phentermine, a stimulant and appetite suppressant.
Someone obviously spiked his urine sample, because there’s no way Sidney Ponson has ever been on an appetite suppressant in his life. Stimulants also cause increased physical activity, and there’s no evidence of that with him either.
The only non-natural substances in Ponson’s pee-pee are Yoo-Hoo and failure. If I were him, I’d demand an investigation immediately.
