DEA agents busted Jose Guillen's wife

Posted on: November 14, 2010 1:52 pm
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.

So what about the HGH he brought with him when he got traded, you know the stuff he had before this stuff, because this isn't the first time he  used this stuff, or am I supposed to believe he thought he would give it a whirl and got a spam email saying he could make his muscles bigger by ordering online.  Yeah well like I said the stuff he brought with him, probably didn't end up with Cody Ross, you know the guy who hit like 5 homeruns for his career and then turned into a one year Lenny Dykstra kinda like lenny Dykstra did.  Yeah you know it, sure renteria didn't get any either, I mean there is another guy who was such a dominant HR threat for his career and no wait no he wasn't.  Of course it probably didn't help their closer you know the guy that has been just a fireballing wizard for lets see hmm one year now, of course its not like Pat Burrel just showed up spent three weeks with their farm team gaining his strength and then wham showed up and started hitting homeruns like he did when he had two ankles oh wait yeah he did.  Oh no wait it was him using the gimp ankle more that made it easier to perform.  damn, no, wait, did a west coast team just HGH their way to the World Series title?   HMMMMMMM?  A cast off bunch of misfits having career years? Hmmmmmmmm?  No wonder they are trying to legalize pot in California, cause you got to be smoking something to buy this crap.  I can't believe it, no way I can believe it, its not like Barry Bonds used to play there, oh wait Damn.

Its to bad these Professional Players feel they need steroids, testosterone, or HGH to play the games that there payed so much to do. Especially the price they have to pay if they are caught. Generally your on a Pro Team because your a good or great athlete. Why take that chance to throw away your career or your dream? It just dosen't make any sense at all.

Given how well the Giants played throughout the postseason, it would seem they don't really need Guillen, anyway.  But was he the only player there involved in the stuff?  They may need to test every player weekly to safeguard the credibility of the game.

Unless there is proof of Jose Canseco or Roger Clemens poking Jose Guillen in the butt with HGH I am going to assume that it is all circumstantial....that is unless a scorned former girlfriend comes forward saying that she saw Guillen actually using HGH (ala Bonds).

Guillen's wife obviously has a severe HGH addiction.  I hope she gets the help she needs.
