The vast majority of people reading this won't give a flying fig, or know who he is. Well, in the 5 years I've been watching baseball, Manny is probably the 2nd best hitter I've seen. I went to a Boston game last year, a) because it's an experience everyone should have but primarily b) to see Manny play. I know full well the history of baseball and drugs, but it still leaves me incredibly saddened. The steroid taking that took place a few years ago was an issue of morals and ethics. This is just fucking stupid.
Worth noting that sources, notably Peter Gammons, are saying it isn't steroids, but something in a prescription that Manny got from his doctor which seemed to have been cleared by MLB.
Manny hasn't been found positive for anything before (at least, not revealed to the public) so being placed with a 50 game ban does not look good for him, right now. It doesn't look good for baseball, either.
