Manny Ramirez is just one of many baseball players to test positive for a banned substance that will leave the Dodger suspended for 50 games. The over whelming response by the media is to hang the guy out to dry, for being a cheater.
How will the Dodger fans react come July 3rd? If Man-Ram doesn't miss a step will he still be reveired? Or are the Mannywood signs as gone as fast as the Wallyworld Posters when Joyner went to Kansas City.
Also, playing the devil's advocate, what would happen had this happen to us? What if Vladimir Guerrero came up dirty on a drug test? Or Mike Napoli? Let me paraphrase our beloved owner Arte Moreno when he said something along the lines of "Its a crime that Manny will be able to come back to the Dodgers this year." Even going so far to say a player who fails a test for banned substances should be suspended indefinately. Bare in mind our Million Dollar Utility Outfielder, Gary Matthews Jr. was linked to the HGH scandal, only months after signing a bloated contract with the Angels.
