Manny Ramirez Retires

Because he wants to keep doing drugs

Quote:
Tampa Bay Rays designated hitter Manny Ramirez is retiring.

Major League Baseball announced the move in a statement on Friday.

"Major League Baseball recently notified Manny Ramirez of an issue under Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program," the statement said. "Rather than continue with the process under the Program, Ramirez has informed MLB that he is retiring as an active player. If Ramirez seeks reinstatement in the future, the process under the Drug Program will be completed. MLB will not have any further comment on this matter."

Ramirez was entering his 18th season in the majors. He played with the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago White Sox and Rays. He has a .312 career batting average with 1,831 RBIs and 555 homers.

Re: Manny Ramirez Retires

I'd say you should probably suspend him for a whole season if he gets caught doing actual steroids for a second time, as it appears that he has. Wouldn't be all that surprised if the Rays told him he was retiring too

Re: Manny Ramirez Retires

I read that it was PED's which is probably steroids or HGH or something similar

Quote:
The slumping Tampa Bay Rays slugger tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug during spring training, sources told ESPN.com, and informed Major League Baseball that he would retire rather than face a 100-game suspension.
"I'm at ease," Ramirez told ESPNdeportes.com via phone from his home in Miami. "God knows what's best [for me]. I'm now an officially retired baseball player. I'll be going away on a trip to Spain with my old man."

Re: Manny Ramirez Retires

Doesn't take him out of the discussion, but people will be discussing how many voters will refuse to vote for him despite the fact that his numbers would otherwise make him a lock.
