For the better part of the past two years, the Washington Nationals have invested time, personnel and, of course, more than $3 million in pitcher Chien-Ming Wang. With each day - and month - that passed without much progress, the decision was scrutinized.
Nyjer Morgan charged the mound after a pitch sailed behind him, triggering a bench-clearing brawl Wednesday night during the Florida Marlins' 16-10 win over the Washington Nationals.
Saying catcher Ronny Paulino's decision to take a banned substance was "extraordinarily disappointing," the Florida Marlins will begin a top-to-bottom review of the organization and how it educates players on what they can legally take under baseball's rules.
"It's a tough situation for this whole team, for Ronny," said catcher Brett Hayes, who was in Friday's lineup.
