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...
