Neifi Perez, Clearly Not Getting It

Hey kids, remember Neifi Perez?  Ya know, serving a 25-game suspension for banned stimulant usage?  Tack on another 80 games, becuase he tested positive again.

(Bolding mine.)

"Under baseball's labor contract, a player cannot be disciplined multiple times for a positive test stemming from the same use of a banned substance, meaning Perez had to take a prohibited stimulant more than once.

Another positive test would lead to a suspension to be determined at the discretion of commissioner Bud Selig, with Perez having the right to have an arbitrator review the penalty."

Somehow, I don't see it getting to that point.  He's going to end the year with a sparkling line of .172/.221/.266, although he did turn that one double play in Verlander's no-hitter.  Think anyone's even going to consider signing him in 2008?
