With Major League Baseball already suspending the likes of Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta, Everth Cabrera and Alex Rodriguez, among others this season, it seemed as though the performance-enhancing-drug firestorm had come to an end.

That is not the case, however, as Kansas City Royals utility man Miguel Tejada has been suspended 105 games without pay for amphetamine use, according to a press release from the league:
