Not a popular stance, but just make 'roids allowable with the same restrictions they put on alcohol, (like the current argument for marijuana).
I certainly don't feel sorry for Manny, but I also certainly understand the pressure and need to get an 'edge'. Especially since the line between what is a nutritional supplement and what's illegal gets blurrier all the time.
I'll now take the firestorm sure to come...

He deserves to be suspended for being a crybaby in the past? Please...I am sure you've done worse things in life so I guess that means you should be locked up in jail for at least 12 months right?

Get a life and grow a heart dude!


Why should he grow a heart for a guy who makes hundreds of millions of dollars and then complains he isn't getting paid enough and THEN uses PED's? I'll pass on feeling sorry


This case was dead and done with but since you asked I am not really against the suspension for using substances banned by MLB, what I didn't think was right is that someone believed Manny should be punished for the little things he did in the past as if he or anyone who feels the same way has never done anythin wrong in their life time...I hope that makes sense...been up all night studyin for a final

Thank you Manny for 8 years with my Bosox and 2 WS champs. I will always be grateful for what this Washington Hts kid did for my team.

Deal with it.

You have a pretty limited world view to make comment like that and top it off with a slam. Who says a kid only has to look up to their parents? If someone is a neo-nazi would you like their kid to look up to them? What if one or both of their parents died? How about kids with deadbeat dads? (I could go on with countless other examples) Maybe you live where your dung smells like roses and you have a stepford wife and your children are perfect, but I got news for you, there are a lot of kids that don't grow up in your ideal environment and it's not their fault. A lot of those kids have no choice but to look to elsewhere for role models, and good or bad a lot of times its public figures.


RenPastana...thanking someone making comments like that? Wow man, can you make yourself look any worse?

Ummm wow let's just assume most parents are nazis and then argue a point....And if your parents are that bad then it goes back to the parents fault which is what he stated????? He literally said if they look up to baseball players instead of you then it's your fault, you statements all they did was give examples of how its the parents fault? WTF are you arguing?

Period.
