This qualifies as a big enough story to break the unofficial no-O's policy of Nats Triple Play. Apparently, slugging 1B Rafael Palmeiro, the newest member of the 3,000 hit club, has been suspended by MLB for violating the league's steroid policy.

So unless he just started shooting up after his testimony, the sweet-swinging lefty could be on the hook for lying to Congress too. All of a sudden, Sammy Sosa's "me-no-speak-the-English" approach to congressional testimony is starting to look pretty canny.
