Manny Ramirez retires

MLB has just announced the retirement of Manny Ramirez, effective immediately.Reading between the lines, it would seem that perhaps Manny had another positive test for a banned substance, which I believe would result in a 1-year suspension as a repeat offender.

 

I think there's no doubt that he has Hall of Fame numbers--but does this affect his chances of getting elected?

How dumb can you be?

 

Will be interesting to see how the media handles this.

Probably wasn't a PED. He must have been on something, why else would you sign with the Rays?

 

(For the record, I'm just trying to mess with Raysfan at this point.)

When he left the Rays they said it was for "Family reasons" if he indeed he has tested positive again for a banned substance like the one he took before that was a fertitliy drug one can only conclude that Manny is pregnant :blink:

 

Manny being... Manuela? o.O

My guess is the banned substance he tested positive for isn't a PED itself, but prolly something along the lines of the fertility drug he tested positive for in 2009. Second time offender would have been a 100 game suspension. Moot point; does anyone think he hasn't used PEDs in his career? I'm personally not one to crucify the man, or what the Red Sox accomplished in 2004 and 2007, because as far as I'm concerned most of the real contenders of that decade were juicing too. Philosophically speaking, I place most of the blame on the union and the league for not cracking down on it better, back then.

 

My guess is he's gonna get the Mark McGwire treatment as far as HOF goes, as will Barry Bonds. How many votes did Mac get last time? Like 27% of the 75% requirement?

 

I personally wouldn't vote for him. I did say I place most of the blame on the league and the union, but Manny can keep his two championships, his 555 home runs and millions of dollars, but not the Hall of Fame.

 

EDIT: Mac got 19% of votes last year.

The only reason on earth for him to be using female fertility drugs is that he's also using PEDs. You can be almost 100% certain that he has used PEDs in his career.
