Kind of Breaking News

 

Guess what I
learned from Twitter this morning? 
Manny Ramirez has been suspended 50 games because he tested positive for
using performance-enhancing drugs. 
Now the whole world is talking about it.  Supposedly, the offending substance is a drug that Manny
received from a doctor, but as far as I can tell, everything is speculation
now.

I imagine this
story will be unfolding throughout the day, but here is the link to the first
LA Times story:

What do you
think?  I’m really surprised, but I
am guessing Manny will weasel his way out; not out of the suspension, but out
of further guilt.  Do you think
this could signal the beginning of the suspension of more big-name stars?
