Manny Ramirez Suspended 50 Games for PEDs

Holy Couldn’t-See-That-Coming, Batman!

Ramirez’ statement:

Recently I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was okay to give me. Unfortunately, the medication was banned under our drug policy. Under the policy that mistake is now my responsibility. I have been advised not to say anything more for now. I do want to say one other thing; I’ve taken and passed about 15 drug tests over the past five seasons.

Um, sure.  OK.  If you say so.

Hey, who knows any more, who is guilty, and who isn’t?  I sure don’t.

But that just seems like legal gobble-dy-gook meant to obfuscate, not clarify.  So right away, I’m suspicious.

Dude sure can hit the damn ball, though. Of all the players I’ve ever suspected of using PEDs, he seemed like he “needed” them the least.
