MLB Hands Out Steroid Punishment

According to this story on ESPN MLB took some action on a few of the HGH-related stories of the past season.  New Royal Jose Guillen (who, lets face it, has destroyed our national innocence) was given a 15-day suspension.  Jay Gibbons admitted to his mistake and was given the same punishment.  That same article stated the MLB has found "insufficient evidence" to give punishment to Troy Glaus, Rick Ankiel, Scott Schoenweis, and Gary Matthews Jr.  No mention was made of the Paul Byrd situation, except for the fact that Guillen used the same online dentist as Byrd.  Guillen also had his shipments sent directly to the stadiums (Oakland Coliseum, in this case), as Byrd has admitted to.  The 15 day suspension was the punishment in 2004, which is why these suspensions are that long.  Instead of the 50 days that there was a lot of talk of, are we now looking at a 15-day period where the Tribe might be without Byrd?  That is a lot more manageable, assuming that two of Sowers/Laffey/Lee stay in the organization to the point where a punishment is handed down.
