Manny Ramirez's short stint as a Ray is over. He officially retired from baseball today after testing positive yet again for drugs during Spring Training. He was facing a manditory 100 day suspension after his 50 day suspension last season and opted instead to retire. That's taking the man-ly way out! Why anyone who had already been suspended and KNEW what the consequences would be if he tested positive again would be stoopid enough to do the same damn thing again is beyond me. But I've never been addicted to drugs so I wouldn't know. More money wasted by the Rays on an aging has-been star. Maybe they'd be better off sticking with the young kids out of college instead.
