The LA Times first broke the news this morning, that Dodgers star outfielder Manny Ramirez has tested positive for performance enhancing drugs.
Major League Baseball confirmed the news, and dished a 50 game suspension out to Ramirez, who is known as one of the games most powerful sluggers.
Manny’s suspension will start today and last him through July 3rd. It will also cost him 7.7 million dollars, nearly 35% of his yearly salary.
Ramirez has the opprotunity to appeal the suspension, and it’s believed that he’s going to blame the substance found in his system on medication perscribed by a doctor for an unrelated health issue.
Is there anyone in baseball these days who ISN’T using performance enhancing drugs???
