Manny Ramirez funny

Manny Ramirez was suspended for 50 games by Major League Baseball today due to a droga escandalo! Ramirez said he did not take steroids and was given medication by a doctor that contained a banned substance.

Supposedly Manny juiced HCG, human chorionic gonadotropin. I don’t know what that means. HCG is prescribed to stimulate female fertility and testosterone production in men and to treat delayed puberty in boys. I still don’t know what that means. 

The 36-jeer-old Gemini apologized to the Dodgers and fans saying:

“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. 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.”

Ramirez’s suspension began Thursday. Ramirez will lose almost $8 MILLION of his $25 million salary. Jesu Christo!

Losing Ramirez to suspension could be a huge blow financially for the Dodgers. His 21-8 record is the best in the major league.  El Lay even renamed a section of seats in left field at Dodger Stadium “Mannywood” in his honor.

  6. I had never heard of that substance but if it has a high estrogen component it is consistent with something that juicers would take after going off their cycle.
    The rules are the rules but I do wish him the best.
    I have made *a few* mistakes in my life so I can’t judge him.  I feel blessed that the national media wasn’t around to cover them ;)
