I guess Manny being Manny has taken on a whole new meaning. The Dodgers rightfielder and the best right-handed hitter in major league baseball has been suspended for 50 games after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs -- notice I didn't write steroids.
The LA Times, which broke the story, and most other media outlets here and here and here are saying that it hasn't been confirmed what exactly he tested positive for. So at this point, to accuse him of steroid use would be a bit presumptive. Manny said that what he was taking was prescribed by his doctor for a personal medical issue. So until more news comes out, to accuse him of steroid use is a bit premature.
Honestly, part of me is stunned by it, but the other part just made me shrug my shoulders and say to myself, "so there's another one." At some point, you just become numb to that type of shock. It all becomes matter of fact. It's a pretty sad and depressing reaction And not one baseball wants from its fans.
