A big story on Josh Flores that doesn't mention that 50-Game Suspension thing

Josh Flores' hometown paper, the Herald-Tribune, outside of Chicago has a big story on the return of Josh Flores, who was released by the Astros last month, to the Joliet Jackhammers. The story focuses on his knees.

Manager Chad Parker:
"The people we talked to from Houston told us great things about him. I'm sure he would still be with the Astros if not for the knee injuries. Now he's got to prove he can put up good numbers with the injuries."

The knee injuries only affected my speed, not my power. Of course, one of my main tools is to run hard and pick up on mistakes other teams make. I can go hard straight out right now. But with the knee, I'm not sure how well it will hold up if I move side to side a lot...

...I was going up quick, on the fast track for a while. But then in Double-A (the highest level he reached), I kind of plateaud."

Do you think they know about that little 50-game suspension?
