Welp, here we go again.

Another superstar caught with a failed PED test. Another person Jose Canseco has busted before an official leak came out.

By this time today, you've all heard the story.

Manny Ramirez has tested positive for a banned substance and will be suspended for 50 days by Major League Baseball.

He won't be paid.

Manny has already come out and said it was for an unrelated medical reason, but then, it seems like every player that gets caught uses that excuse until more evidence condemns them, now doesn't it?

The drug that Manny took was a female fertility drug. It's commonly used by steroid users to balance out natural hormones. There would be no reason for him to use it if he wasn't using steroids, unless Manny also has a uterus that we don't know about.

I find that highly unlikely.

At least now Red Sox fans won't be able to act so smug about A-Rod and their two "clean" rings

Random prediction time? The next big name to fall will be Albert Pujols.
