Man! I WAS one of his biggest fans until this...How stupid is he though? Did Manny really think he would have gotten away with it? Simply dumb!

Dodgers line up is no longer scary anymore...

I really do hope he was given bad medication and took it thinking it was ok as it is being said on ESPN

I guess this obviously just came out, they found out last night and put together the story before breaking it this morning, but there are still a few people that think that if he just says 'yes i did it' that it will be reduced... also Manny is saying that ' he went to a doctor to receive treatments and that he didn't know anything about any performance enhancing drugs' so hes denying it already - from Dylan Hernandez... Gammons says - 'BoraSS told him Manny saw a doctor in Miami to receive treatment and a prescription, but wasn't known to be on "THE LIST", but we all saw JC Romero suspended earlier in the season for using a drug that also wasn't apart of the "blacklisted drugs".... so basically this 50 games is sounding like it for sure could happen... just gotta sit and wait on the news conferences that always follow these stories....

also just to add to it, he did NOT test positive for STEROIDS, but tested positive for PERFORMANCE ENHANCING drugs... his suspension although will start TONIGHT, so if hes in your lineup get him out ASAP!...

Very sad to hear. Hopefully this is something quite recent but the damage to his legacy may be done already. Going into this year, he was one of a very short list of big time hitters, that hadn't been linked before. Bad news to me b/c I have Manny on nearly every team, and have followed him since arriving in the League, back in Clev.


Anyone think this suspension could get shortened (could w/ everyone else previously getting a free pass)?

i feel no pitty for any of these d-bags... they are pro athletes they know they are under the microscope especially Manny who is part of that 'group' that MLB has been keeping a close eye on 35+ year olds still producing at the top of league, so why feel sorry or be sad about it? whatever happened to just hitting the weights and running and working out the RIGHT way to get your name known?

as for the suspension i hope its not shortened he deserves every bit of that 50 games IMO, but its depending on what exactly this drug was/is and what MLB decides, and i remind you JC Romero was suspended for 50 games for pills he took that he had bought from a general nutrition store... but it doesn't help that these prescriptions came from Florida and we all remember how much trouble there was and all the investigating a couple years ago with doctors writing illegal prescriptions and all the pharmacies thats were in deep down there also... its gonna be a big mess before it gets better...

hes suspended which essentially means hes not apart of the team, so his spot will/has already been filled... don't know if he got the call yet but he will by bare minimum this afternoon to have him up at least on the bench to fill Manny's spot, and thats Xavier Paul...
