    Dodgers Outfielder Manny Ramirez Suspended for Drug Use

    Thursday, May 07, 2009

    Manny Ramirez will be suspended for 50 games beginning today after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs, Major League Baseball announced Thursday.

    Ramirez, a 12-time All-Star who signed a two-year, $45-million contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers in March, is expected to attribute the test results to medication he received from a physician for a personal medical matter, a source close to the matter told the Los Angeles Times.

    The commissioner's office did not immediately announce the exact violation by Ramirez. The hulking right-handed outfielder with 533 career home runs will not be eligible to return to the team until July 3, the Times reports.

    The suspension follows Alex Rodriguez's acknowledgement in February that he used steroids from 2001 to 2003.
    Calls to Scott Boras, Ramirez's agent, were not immediately returned Thursday.

    According to Major League Baseball's drug policy, a player receives a 50-game suspension for a first positive drug test, a 100-game suspension for a second positive test and a lifetime ban for a third positive test. The suspensions are without pay.

    i remember when he left Boston, and, as a Red Sox fan personally i was pissed off.

    i think back to him in his early days he was a tub of lard. How anyone could not see that he was doing steroids is beyond me.

    this is not about Manny being Manny, its more about Manny being stupid.

    I remember him in Triple A in Colorado Springs and in Cleveland - kind of lost interest when he moved on to Bosotn, but I don't recall him as a "tub of lard." Dumb as a box of rocks, always and forever, but I don't think he was fat.

    he was not the muscle man he is today. okay, maybe not lard, but its obvious that he has done something. not at A-rod proportions though.

    Tub of Lard??? I saw him here in Boston about 2-3 years ago when he was picking up his Benz after getting an audio system put in and the guy was JACKED...solid, not flabby at all.

    sucks for the dodgers...they paid a lot of money to keep him. their undefeated at home streak for the season broke yesterday, right after this news came out. too bad for them.

    that being said, manny's fucking hot.
