(CBS News) Hours after Bartolo Colon was suspended 50 games for a positive drug test, teammate Brandon McCarthy expressed disappointment in the banished pitcher.

"You can say someone's a good teammate, but it has to extend in all facets," McCarthy said. "Off the field, on the field and how you are in the clubhouse, no matter how you look at it, we've now lost a really important part of our team to his actions."

But Brandon's wife, Amanda, took a decidedly less serious tone when she sent out this tweet Wednesday:

For those unfamiliar with the "nutritional supplement," ExtenZe promises on its website to "enhance desire, power, pleasure and performance and improve your overall sex life."
