Manny Ramirez retires

Postby Kim Bhasin » Fri Apr 08, 2011 4:24 pm

Per MLB release.

MLB recently notified Manny of an issue under MLB’s drug prevention & treatment program. Rather than go through the process, he's hanging it up.

What a way to go...

Here's the actual language from the MLB press release:

"Major League Baseball recently notified Manny Ramirez of an issue under Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. 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."

So he'd rather do drugs than play baseball.

Wait, so does this mean Sean Rodriguez is an everyday player now?

via multiple sources:

Manny tested positive for a banned substance in a Spring Training test, would've been a 100-game suspension. Looks like he didn't appeal either, or MLB would've just announced the suspension.
