  • Manny's retiring after getting busted for PEDs again

    NEW YORK -- Tampa Bay Rays slugger Manny Ramirez told Major League Baseball on Friday that he is retiring after being notified of an issue that arose under MLB's drug policy.

    The commissioner's office announced Ramirez's decision in a statement but did not say whether he tested positive for a banned substance. Ramirez tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug during spring training and retired rather than face a 100-game suspension, The New York Times reported on its website. Ramirez previously served a 50-game suspension for violating the drug policy while he was with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

    "Major League Baseball recently notified Manny Ramirez of an issue under Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program," the statement said. "Rather than continue with the process under the Program, Ramirez has informed MLB that he is retiring as an active player. If Ramirez seeks reinstatement in the future, the process under the Drug Program will be completed."
    Makes sense. He's struggled with injuries, hasn't been playing well and seemed out of place with the Rays who look like a bad team.

      Shame. As much as I hate him for being a cock sucking ass hole;he is an all time great hitter. Still think him, A-Rod, and SHAME Bonds are Hall of Famers.
