Ortiz and Manny: Tested Positive in '03

Postby BronXBombers51 » Thu Jul 30, 2009 12:32 pm

Just reported on Sportscenter. Not a big surprise, but figured it's going to be discussed sooner or later.

Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003, lawyers with knowledge of the results told The New York Times.

The two were key members of the Boston Red Sox World Series teams in 2004 and 2007.

As a Sox fan I'm disappointed. As a baseball fan, I'm not surprised in the least.

It only matters if they used steroids to set individual statistical records, not to help a team win the World Series.

Duh.

The only two players I'd be surprised to hear did 'roids are Griffey and Jeter.

i'd like to see the list of players who DIDN'T take PEDs back then. probably a shorter list than the ones who did test positive.

I'd be surprised about Maddux but that's about it.
