Manny Being Manny

I guess its more of Manny being Manny. Manny Ramirez was suspended for 50 games for a banned substance: HCG (a female fertility drug). HCG is used to restart the body's ability to produce testosterone and used by steroid users at the end of a steroid cycle. Manny claims that it was prescribed to him for a "personal health issue" and that he had passed 15 drug tests in the past. C'mon Manny! Should we applaud drunk drivers who kill innocent people for not drunk drunking in the past? Are there any "heroes" left in baseball anymore? Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, and now Manny. Who's next? Albert Pujols? Ryan Howard? Here's my solution: instead of there being an American League and National League, they should have a Juice League and a Non-Juice League. Juice League players would all make the league minimum ($400,000), they would get 2 outs per inning, and have their own record book. We'll see how quickly players would be jumping onto the juice bandwagon.
