Manny Tests Positive
Thursday, May 7, 2009

Manny Ramirez has reportedly tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs, and will be suspended for 50 games.  The LA Times broke the story on Thursday.

This is surprising in that Manny is one of the best hitters in the game.  This is also not surprising in that Manny is one of the best hitters in the game.  Once Alex Rodriguez tested positive, all of the shock of any future positive tests was removed.

The top two salaried MLB stars have now tested positive.  A-Rod was number one ($33,000,000).  Manny was number two ($24,000,000).

Number three is Derek Jeter.

Now THAT would actually be surprising.
