    Manny Ramirez retiring...

    MLB announces Manny Ramirez is retiring after failed drug test - ESPN

    "Major League Baseball recently notified Manny Ramirez of an issue under Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program," the statement said. "Rather than continue with the process under the Program, Ramirez has informed MLB that he is retiring as an active player."

    My guess is he would have had to sit 100 games since it was a second offense. I'm just going on memory for the length of second offense.

    Probably the best pure hitter I have watched play. That's my opinion anyway. Just imagine if he would have taken the game seriously.

    Him or Griffey Jr. Ramirez taking it seriously or Jr. not getting hurt... Both will go down as some of the best, but could have been that much better.
