Kansas City Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie thought that his stats should be slightly altered after seeing Major League Baseball's announcement on Twitter that San Diego Padres catcher was suspended 50 games because of a positive test for testosterone.

I'm taking that HR back then. RT : BREAKING: C Yasmani Grandal suspended 50 games w/o pay for testing positive for Testosterone

Back in June when Guthrie was a member of the Colorado Rockies, Grandal hit a two-run home run 375 feet to left off of Guthrie to give the Padres a 3-2 lead in the top of the sixth inning. It was Grandal's second of the game. Guthrie was the losing pitcher in San Diego's 8-4 win.

But what about the other 29 home runs (including another in that same game) he gave up throughout the 2012 season? That's a different story.

Other 29 were because I threw belt high middle 94mph, my bad on those. RT : How 'bout the other 29?
