Manny Being Manny (On Drugs)

Hey, I hate Manny as much as the next person, but lets not rush to judgment 20 minutes after the news breaks. Here's Manny's (lawyer's) side of it:

“Recently I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was OK to give me,” Ramirez said in a statement issued by the players’ union.

“Unfortunately, the medication was banned under our drug policy. Under the policy that mistake is now my responsibility. I have been advised not to say anything more for now. I do want to say one other thing; I’ve taken and passed about 15 drug tests over the past five seasons.”

Finally, that Pujols cheap shot is just hating, plain and simple. He's as clean as your mother is dirty.

Oh, and I'm from St. Louis.

I only agree with your Pujols comment. That guy is a saint. I just have some fantasy baseball issues (13th place?) that I was taking out on him.

I thought the assumption was 15 years ago that all professional players in all sports used roids or other performance enhancing drugs. What wacko world do we live in where we don't assume this anymore?

It's being reported that it was neither steroids or HGH.

Manny's excuse is that he was too dumb to know what his doctor prescribed him. He may be the one player who I'm willing to entertain with this laughable explanation.

"A source close to Manny Ramirez(notes) said Thursday that the illegal substance for which the Los Angeles Dodgers slugger tested positive was not “an agent customarily used for performance enhancing.”

At least not on the baseball diamond. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the substance is supposed to boost sex drive. It is not Viagra, but a substance that treats the cause rather providing a temporary boost in sexual performance, the source said."

Wow, this keeps getting better.
