Ten years in the big house keeps me from committing murder too, but that doesn't stop everyone. Same thing here... some people feel they won't get caught.

I just don't really care I guess. Maybe Manny used this drug to finish off a cycle, maybe he's telling the truth. Until MLB starts testing for HGH I'll just keep assuming a majority of guys are using performance enhancing drugs. Manny is just dumb enough to get caught.
At least he isn't turning this into a A-roid or Palmeiro drama. He's getting suspended for 50 games whether he took the stuff on purpose or not. Might as well man up and get it over with. Truthfully it might be a good thing in the end. McBroke will save $8M that can be used to go after a starter at the deadline and it probably makes Manny more likely to exercise his option at the end of the year. With or without Manny the Dodgers win this division easily so losing him for 2 months just isn't a big deal to me.
Plus, the Giants still suck so how bad can it be as a Dodger fan?

Welcome back to the thread. Couldn't post about how much the Dodgers suck until something like this happened, i guess?

Our 4 and 5 hitters have zero home runs. Good idea Torre.
