Folks, I can't even imagine what it must have been like for Mets infielder LZ Mazzilli to step into his parent house after testing... for the second time for a banned substance. Baseball defines this kind of use as a 'drug of abuse' which would categorize it either in the family of marijuana, cocaine, and ecstasy.He has been diagnosed in the past with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. This isn't that. This is just outright stupidity.
I had the pleasure of interviewing LZ twice in my life and have met both his parents on an opening day here in Savannah. LZ seemed so much more gentile than his intense father and you can only wonder how hard it was for him to earn his approval. Now this.
This really sucks. Look for players like William Fulmer or Branden Kaupe to be asked to step up or Milton Ramos be moved over from SS.
