Manny Ramirez will be suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball for a failed performance-enhancing drug test. Ramirez is expected to say the positive test was triggered by a prescription drug he was using for a medical condition and not a steroid, according to sources.
Sure, Manny, that's pretty convenient. But let's face it: Manny, like A-Rod and the rest before him, juiced. If he had a condition and a doctor prescribed him this drug, why wouldn't he just have cleared it with MLB before he started using it?
Ramirez will begin serving the suspension tonight and will not be eligible to return until July 3rd.
