It's terrible to celebrate the return of Manny Ramirez - ESPN

Finally! I found something from ESPN that I agree with.

Manny Ramirez cheated and he got caught. He broke the rules of the game and he was punished with a 50-game suspension.

There is no need to villainize him any more than Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire, A-Rod, and the rest of the proven or suspected steroid users, but two wrongs do not make a right.

Manny Ramirez does not deserve praise, he does not deserve applause, he does not deserve a heroes welcome when he rejoins the team.

If that's what he receives in LA, I have to question the morals of their fan base.

Where can I comment?
