Breaking News: Guillen, Gibbons Suspended

Major League Baseball has suspended Jose Guillen, newly signed by the Royals, and Orioles' outfielder Jay Gibbons, 15 games each for violation of Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Scott Schoeneweis, Gary Matthews Jr., Troy Glaus and Rick Ankiel received no suspensions due to insufficient evidence. Source

Guillen has already said he plans on appealing, but Gibbons admitted he was at fault.
"I am deeply sorry for the mistakes that I have made," Gibbons said. "I have no excuses and bear sole responsibility for my decisions. Years ago, I relied on the advice of a doctor, filled a prescription, charged the hGH, which is a medication, to my credit card and had only intended to help speed my recovery from my injuries and surgeries. I hope that my family, teammates, fans and [Orioles owner] Peter Angelos and the entire Orioles organization will accept my apologies and that we can all move on."
