You’ve got to be kidding. Manny didn’t know what he was taking was illegal? You buy that, Peter Gammons?
He tested positive for HCG, a fertility drug used to increase testosterone production (which players need after a steroid cycle to normalize testosterone levels).
Why would he need this drug? It’s not Viagra, it has a specific purpose to baseball players and is abused.
These analysts that are defending Manny are off their rocker. Do we really believe that these guys don’t know what they’re doing?
Here’s a thought: You get paid $25 million. Don’t take the doctor’s word for it. Send it to the MLB and make sure they approve it. Check it against their PUBLISHED LIST!!!!
Sorry for the yelling, but I could not help myself. He cheated and deserves to be punished.
