Manny No Mas

MANNY RAMIREZ

The baseball career of Manny Ramirez is over. His retirement was announced today by Major League Baseball. In the end, it wasn’t the .059 batting average or the booing by Tampa Bay Rays fans that did Ramirez in. It was drugs.

Following an article by the New York Times which cited two sources as saying Ramirez tested positive for performance enhancing drugs this spring, Manny decided to retire as an active player rather than face a 100 game suspension for getting caught using PEDs for a second time.

Now, despite 555 career homers, a batting average of .312, 12 All-Star appearances and a pair of World Series rings, Ramirez stands virtually no chance of getting into the Hall of Fame.
