Manny Gets 50 Game Suspension

This just in.

According to the LA Times, Manny Ramirez will be suspended 50 games for Performance-Enhancing Drug use.  Wow.  Ramirez is expected to start his suspension tonight and won’t return until JULY.

According to the LA Times: “Ramirez is expected to attribute the test results to medication received from a doctor for a personal medical issue, according to a source familiar with matter but not authorized to speak publicly.”

What a huge blow to the game of baseball.  Since February, both Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez, two of the top five (three?) hitters in the game have either admitted or tested positive for PEDs.  What does this say about baseball?  Just remember, my guess was that 85-90% of players (at PED use’s height) did something.  This has serious implications for both the legacy of Ramirez and the legacy of the game from 1995 – now.  With A-Rod, Clemens, Bonds, McGwire, Palmeiro,  Sheffield, and now Manny being accused of PED use those are some of the best players in this generation.  They can’t all be locked out of Cooperstown, can they?
