Report: Ramirez Suspended 50 Games for Positive Test
By The New York Times
Dodgers - Bats Blog

The Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez will be suspended 50 games for a positive drug test.
Manny RamirezHector Mata/Associated Press Manny Ramirez was leading the Dodgers in hitting this season, batting .348 and helping the team to a record start at home.

“The suspension will cost Ramirez $7.7 million, or roughly 31 percent of his $25 million salary,” reports The Times. “Players in violation of baseball’s drug policy are not paid during suspensions.”

Ramirez’s punishment is expected to take effect for Thursday’s game against the Washington Nationals, making him eligible to return to baseball July 3.

After being traded from the Boston Red Sox to Los Angeles last season, Ramirez propelled the Dodgers to the playoffs, hitting .396 with 17 homers and 53 runs batted in after the trade. He signed a two-year, $45 million contract before this season and was hitting .348 this season with 6 homers and 20 R.B.I. in 27 games.

The substance that Manny tested positive for is actually a drug that is used to restart the normal testosterone producing process in your body after a regimen of steroids is abandoned. TFCO Manny. :pinkelephant:

and baseball totally didnt buy into his story he went to his own personal doctor for this treatment.. baseball has an exemption program and he could have went to one of there doctors to have the issue checked out! but he didnt and now he has to man up and deal with the 50 game suspension!

This morning ESPN says, "It's just Manny being Manny."

I'm anxious to see how well the Dodgers play without him. Hopefully they can show that they don't really need the head case.

Some experts actually think this is good for the Dodgers team baseball-wise. The NL West is putrid enough that they will have no problem staying out front and they get a well rested Manny back for the 2nd half of the season.
