#1. Manny isn't clean right now. Let's not be ridiculous.

#2. He'll be fine. He's just in a slump.

i think its more of an issue with his injured hand. he's not turning on inside stuff and getting beat there.. and thats always been so great about manny is that you can't beat him inside.


but he is a cheater, and cheaters never prosper..

Ramirez's new $45-million, two-year Dodgers deal is worth $42,005,723 according to the union filing obtained by SI.com. Ramirez is to be paid $25 million for 2009 and $20 million for 2010. But the actual payouts are as follows: $10 million in '09, $10 million in '10, $8.33 million in '11, $8.33 million in '12 and $8.33 million in '13. He is to receive no interest on the deferred payments, bringing the value down nearly $3 million from $45 million to $42 million.

For Ramirez, the key is the ability to void the contract after 2009, at which point he can become a free agent. A full no-trade provision is also in the contract.

Sounds pretty prosperous to me. :-b

A player losing ability once off the roids? No way!
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
