DEA agents busted Jose Guillen's wife

Guillen When the Giants left Jose Guillen off the postseason roster, the initial thought was that he was hobbled by a neck injury and hadn't produced well down the stretch.

Then, news broke that Guillen was linked to shipments of HGH. While San Francisco maintained that they left Guillen off the postseason roster for injury reasons, the added information that Guillen was about to go down for performance-enhancement usage certainly had to make the decision easier.

Sunday, the New York Daily News reveals that DEA agents first caught wind of the shipment by tracking the supplier. They noticed that almost 50 pre-loaded syringes of human growth hormone were to be sent to one Yamel Guillen in San Francisco -- the wife of Jose.

DEA agents intercepted the package, arranged delivery and upon Yamel's signature, confronted her. She consented to a search and has since returned to the Dominican Republic.

Meanwhile, MLB's Department of Investigations is exploring whether other players were sent similar shipments, as well as investigating a second shipment that may have been sent to Guillen.

Guillen has previously been dinged for HGH usage, having reportedly purchased HGH, testosterone and other steroids from 2002-05. He was set for a 15-game suspension prior to the Mitchell Report's release, but commissioner Bud Selig announced in April of 2008 that Guillen and other players named in the report would be granted amnesty.

No such amnesty would be given this time around, and Guillen is likely looking at a suspension of 50 games, the amount one must miss on the first violation of the drug agreement. It is possible that suspension could reach 100 games provided MLB both links Guillen to a second shipment and contends that is a separate and additional violation.

My comment should have been here.  You are exactly right.  Get caught, career over.  Permanent suspension.  One or two will get caught and when their careers are over in a heartbeat you will find no other player will take the chance.  Until then, for the ridiculous amount of money that is available, you are going to have players that cheat.  The stakes aren't high enough now.

Big deal.  Roger Clemens lied to Congress.  You know what that's going to amount to?  Nothing.  Barry Bonds?  Nothing.  Giambi?  Nothing.  And so on and so forth.  Meanwhile, all these guys have made mountains of money and assuming they haven't been stupid with said money, it's not going to bother them one iota.

You've got to stop these guys before they get the big contracts, not after.

I don't feel sorry for any player who is stupid enough to do this stuff, but most certainly not for the likes of Jose Guillen.

PhillyAlchemist,

What an absolutely pathetic attempt to descredit the team that beat your Phillies fair and square. Jose Guillen played a total of 42 games for the Giants this year, batted .265, hit three homeruns and had 15 RBI's. Impressive? He was left completely off the postseason roster and because he gets busted for HGH, all of the sudden everyone on the Giants must be on PED's and that's how they won? S-T-R-E-T-C-H. So tell me, if the Giants beat the Phillies in the NLCS because they were juiced, then were the Phillies on some sort of anti-HGH? Because I assume you saw the same Ryan Howard and Chase Utley performances that I did.

What's also pathetic is the guy that purposefully says something to get a rise out of others but then acts all surprised when he gets the exact reaction he was looking for and then proceeds to berate those for that very reaction. Did I mention pathetic?

Until they start handing out real penalties for using it will never stop.There should be a no tolerence policy in effect and anyone caught using should be banned for life.Then and only then will players stop because the policies in effect now have too little risk for too great a reward.

Wow, I sense a lot of anger, could the Giants fans be roid raging?  and i didn't say this was the first time these players used drugs, I am sure they used before they got to your team  and before this year.  OOOO and by the way, all the baseball insiders compared your team to the 93 Phillies, who were completely and totally on drugs.  That is baseball lifers who made that comparison.  Baseball lifers compared you guys to a team full of steroid users.  Not me, all of baseball.  And again I say BARRY BONDS  BARRY BONDS. 

And i am not sore, I am happy for you, it was nice to see another town who doesn't know how to celebrate without setting fires and starting riots.  Oh and to quote your Mr. Wilson on how he felt after winning, "I WANT TO RAGE"  says it all.  FYI I didn't hate the Yankees last year, or the Rockies before that, enjoy your scandal.  Oh and Barry Bonds, Barry Bonds, Barry Bonds.  I am sure you run a clean club.  The Giants organization would never look the other way. 

And yes it is a finger, and it might be up your bunghole giggle wink wink te hee te hee hee.  I think you are so cute when you are mad, it brings out the brown in your eyes, its like my septic tank at first light. 

I LOVE YOU ALL  BECAUSE  I ONLY LIKE ANGRY PEOPLE! 
I WILL USE MY POWERS  TO HELP YOU WIN A SCRATCH OFF TICKET  TO MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER,
I LOVE YOU!

This guy personifies everything that is wrong with baseball.  He is a terrible teammate, a cheater, a malcontent and for the most part, a washed up player who is only in it for the money.  I say good riddens to him.  Go sit around with Sammy Sosa and wonder why nobody wants you.  One day you'll figure it out.  Oh...and it's not because you're Dominican.
