Over the weekend Fernando Tatis Jr. was hit with an 80-game suspension from MLB for using an anabolic steroid. While Tatis tries to blame his negative test on treatment for ringworm, the Padres are left with egg on their face.

Ben Maller: "The Padres front office are looking like country bumpkins on this one. They couldn't even get to Year 7 or 8 of the contract before this happened. They got a year and that's it. He hasn't played at all this year so 1 year of Tatis and now this and "Here ya go!" Forking over the forever contract."
