Carlos Gómez makes some controversial statements about MLB's 'randomized' drug tests

With the recent case of Robinson Canó's positive drug test, which led him to be suspended by the Major Leagues for 80 games, the ghosts from the Steroid Era are beginning to rise again, and some players are concerned about the measures that the league is taking.

 

One of these players is Carlos Gómez, the veteran outfielder of the Tampa Bay Rays just opened up about his own experiences with MLB's drug tests on Yahoo Sports MLB Podcast, and stated that the Big Leagues is not equal with them:

“It’s not random. It’s not random. I can put my hand on fire, it’s not random. They pick guys. I think it’s something the way you play, the way you act … I’m the oldest guy on the team. I get here earlier than everybody. Why?

 

Even with that being said, Gómez went further on the matter, and he was clearly upset with that:

Because I have to work harder to maintain my body to support the rest of the season. When I do that and they come to you and have a drug test every time, you get furious. You get mad. One month into the season I got like seven drug tests. Something like that. Between five or seven. That’s not right. We have a guy on the team who for sure hasn’t had one drug test.
