They are saying on ESPN it isnt Roids, but some kind of meds from a doctor. I will be curious to find out what is the truth here.

This is a pretty big blow to the Dodgers.

I also echo Speed's comments. Now he can take 50 games to nurse all those "injuries" he had in Boston.

Major League Baseball is expected to announce Thursday that Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and will be suspended for 50 games, The Los Angeles Times is reporting.
Ramirez's test result and suspension are expected to be announced Thursday, The Times said.
Citing a source familiar with the matter, The Times reported Ramirez is expected to say the positive test results were a result of medication received from a doctor for a personal medical issue.
If his suspension begins Thursday, Ramirez would be eligible to return to the Dodgers' lineup for their July 3 game against San Diego.
Triple-A outfielder Xavier Paul has been told by the Dodgers that he will be promoted later today, according to The Times.
In his first full season as a Dodger, Ramirez is batting .348 with six home runs and 20 RBIs. Los Angeles has bolted to a 21-8 record -- best in the majors -- and a 13-0 record at home that set the modern major league record for home winning streak to start a season.

It really is, and they got out of the gate so hot too.

Manny Ramirez and other players who have used this drug ARE A DISGRACE TO BASEBALL.

As a SOX fan it pains me to think that Ortiz may also have been a user. Pujols and Jeter are what baseball is hanging thier hats on to be "clean" but at this point NO NAME would surprise me.

I'm just overwhelmed with joy that Manny was caught!

In an appearance at USC last month, Jose Canseco said Ramirez's name "is most likely, 90%" on a list of 104 players that failed a drug test in 2003. The players were promised anonymity for taking tests in 2003; Rodriguez is the only player that has been identified among that group.

Ramirez laughed when Times columnist Kurt Streeter relayed Canseco's allegation to him.

"I got no comment, nothing to say about that," Ramirez told Streeter. "What can I say? I don't even know the guy."
