    I would bet that it wasn't pain killers. To "heal faster" which I have seen in articles about the alleged failed test, you would have to take some sort of HGH or other type of synthetic hormone. For all we know, it could have been a "pill" you get at GNC like a test boost.

    Here is what I think, based on what he said in an interview in Puerto Rico (details here) He clearly said that what he tested positive now was in a pill. And he took the same pills (presumably by prescription) when he was hit on the face and broke his jaw while in Beloit. Those pills were for pain (not for "healing".) And standard procedure to prescribe them for these type of injuries. I think that the sticking point is whether this time he had a prescription (he did last last time). And this is what the MLB is investigating. If he did not have a prescription for narcotic painkillers (Percocet or whatever) then it would fall under the street drug category. Hard to see someone prescribing opiates to treat throwing arm tendinitis though...

    I know it is a bit naive, but you wonder if maybe he had a couple of pills left over and 'self medicated'.

    Yeah, that's possible even likely. And one has to remember that pharmacies and medication control work differently outside the US. There are several places in this world that you could walk to a drug store and buy antibiotics for sure. Not sure whether this applies to the equivalent of schedule II meds here, but...

    Regardless of how it happened it really doesn't concern me. He was taking a painkiller according to most accounts so we aren't talking about a PED or a recreational drug. Hopefully he can avoid a 50 game suspension but it doesn't concern me long term.

    Not a long term issue to me. I doubt it effects his prospects of being a good MLB at all. He'll be a starting OF or 2B for someone in 2015.
    Lighten up Francis....
