Manny suspended for 50 games

From the Official Dodgers website,

LOS ANGELES -- Major League Baseball suspended Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez for 50 games on Thursday for use of performance enhancing drugs.

Major League Baseball made an official announcement shortly after noon ET.

Ramirez, who turns 37 on May 30, will begin the suspension with Thursday night's Dodgers-Nationals game. He would be eligible to return around July 3, depending on rainouts.

Wow.. I don't know what to think of this. I honestly never thought that Manny could do something like this. It just goes to show you just NEVER know.

I don't think I am too worried about it, though. We have a really good lineup with Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, and the newcomer Orlando Hudson. With Manny's suspension, that allows Xavier Paul to com up from Triple A. He did really well in spring training.
