Manny Ramirez positively took PEDs

Wow.  This is not my opinion, he really did test positive!  Manny Ramirez has incurred a 50-game suspension now that the MLB has confirmed this report.

UPDATE: A source told Yahoo that the substance Ramirez took, HCG, was meant for sexual enhancement.  Do you buy this?

One more baseball gargantuan has lost his reputation, forever.  Does he make the hall of fame now?  Does Alex Rodriguez?  Who knows what baseball will do with this era, but it is one of the most disappointing issues in all of sports.

In retrospect, you do kind of wonder - 37 years old and hitting the way he does. Gee wiz I wish Mickey Mantle had the help that Manny's been getting. In a way though, this is a tragedy, and I actually hope there's some explanation. I heard Boras say the test came up positive because of a prescription drug Manny was taking. We'll see how this plays out, but for now, it's just bad news.

As for Hall of Fame, I don't see how you can keep Pete Rose out for betting on games, while these guys did things that directly affected the outcomes of games.

Lenny. They have not said PEDs. Can we all stop jumping to conclusions?

As for the earlier comment on Pete Rose, I completely agree.

"Manny Ramirez has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and has been suspended 50 games starting today, Major League Baseball confirmed." - According to the LA Times. -,0,6324894.story

Ok... ESPN had been refraining from calling it PEDs. What worries me is that these players are guilty until proven innocent, and I would like to wait for all the facts before we banish these players.

I was amazed when I heard how many millions of dollars Manny stands to lose by not playing 50 games; this mistake is costing him a gigantic fortune

Probably not a fortune in Manny's eyes. He has a lot of money to fall back on.
