    I'm no Dodger fan or Manny fan, for that matter... it makes no difference, Dodger still win this division by 3-4 games. Don't even get me started on the P.E.D. thing... if they want to use... more power to 'em! ....literally!

    I agree. This really doesn't hurt our chances to win the division, it's the NL West for crying out loud.

    To me, there's a huge difference between steroids and the "drugs of abuse" listed in the MLB Drug Policy.

    Apparently the MLB is going to announce the details later on today. If it does end up being something like weed or anything but a steroid, not only will it save Manny a tremendous amount of face, but the MLB as well. They don't need yet another superstar to go down the tubes.

    Regardless, despite what he said in his statement, I'm certain he was damn well aware that whatever he took () was on the list and the 50-games, while tough to swallow, are justified.

    I am still amazed by these athletes who get caught that they "unknowingly" took something that they did or did not know were illegal, etc. These guys depend on their bodies for their livelihood, and you don't know what you're taking?

    Whatever banned substance it was, whether steroids, weed, Viagra, whatever, Manny needs to be penalized like anyone else. The arguments of whether certain substances should be banned are another matter.

    This sucks hard. Now I have to fend off all the Dodger haters that I know.

    There is a very distraught doctor in Florida right now and a very happy attorney somewhere else.
    I don't know if this was mentioned, but Peter Gammons is reporting that it was not a "performance enhancing drug". According to Gammons what happened was Manny was given medication from a doctor that contained a drug on banned list (i.e. taking codeine and testing positive for opiates).
    For MLB this doesn't change a thing, mistake is no excuse.
    But the doctor supposedly told Manny that the medication was ok to use per MLB standards.
    Bad news for the doc, salary lost (what, 7 or 8 million?) and damage to Manny’s reputation, wow.
    Pay day for Atticus Finch.

    "Recently I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was okay to give me. Unfortunately, the medication was banned under our drug policy. Under the policy that mistake is now my responsibility. I have been advised not to say anything more for now. I do want to say one other thing; I've taken and passed about 15 drug tests over the past five seasons."
