Manny RamiezManny Ramirez has tested positive for performance enhancing drugs and will be suspended without pay for 50 games, the LA Times is reporting.

The Los Angeles Dodgers star is the most prolific player to be suspended by MLB since it began testing in 2003.

The paper is reporting Manny will attribute the positive test result to "medication received from a doctor for a personal medical issue."

According to the report, Manny stands to lose about $7.7 million.

The Dodgers currently have the best record in baseball.

How is A-Rod worse than Manny in this situation?? A-Rod's use was BEFORE it was against the rules whereas Manny was using PEDs knowing they were banned and what the consequences were. This wole "doctor's prescription" excuse is BS. He knew what he was doing and I'm sure he was using when he was with Boston too.

Guess Manny won't be knocking down any old men in baseball for a while. That's too bad.

The Dodgers should also forfeit about 10 games. Or 20. Because of their cheater Manny.
He's suspended without pay. That's awesome. Too bad it wasn't for 100 games. They give that for the second offense.

I'm willing to toss him out and call him a three time loser though. Because this way he'll never throw an old man to the ground again because he can't get more free tickets. Jerkoff.

LA fans ain't that bad. They may be uneducated and now they will have more time to gangbang down at Venice Beach and other places since they won't go to more games. So it's really a win-win for society.

I've been a Dodger fan for 30 years and if Manny gets paid during his suspension, I'm switching to ANY other team.

#9, is absolutely correct! These Puerto Ricans are uncivilized and they don't know how to behave. We bring them to this country and try to educate them but it is an impossible task. Even with money they revert back to their animalistic natures. Get them out of America!!!

That's a smoke screen by MLB and they know it. He will just appeal to arbitration and some dumb ass arbitrator will find in his favor.

There is no accountability in today's society for anything. Our kids are being taught they can do anything now day's and get away with it.

What a frigging joke.

Barry Bonds is still available. He'll sign for the 8 million the Dodgers save by not paying Manny for 50 games. And he will not embarrasse anybody with secret drug tests since that cat was out of the bag a long time agooooooo. I like home runs and do not care how you hit them because you can bring any steroid user from Gold's Gym, and they will not have a clue how to hit a 100 mph fastball out of the park. It takes special skills with or without injections. Go Dodgers!
