HOLY F#$K!

Manny Ramirez has been SUSPENDED for 50 games for performance enhancing drugs according to the LA Times.

Ramirez is expected to attribute the test results to medication received from a doctor for a personal medical issue, according to a source familiar with matter but not authorized to speak publicly.

With the suspension taking effect with tonight’s game at Dodger Stadium, Ramirez will not be eligible to return to the team until July 3.

WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW.

The official announcement is supposed to be come later today. Manny has denied ever being linked to any PEDs before and when told that Jose Canseco believed it 90% likely that Manny had previously tested positive replied, “I got no comment, nothing to say about that. What can I say? I don’t even know the guy.”

Can You Be on the DL with an STD?

salo-sami-1Sami Salo has been struggling with an undisclosed injury during the Canucks’ playoff series with the resurgent Chicago Blackhawks, when pressed by the Chicago media about whether the injury was to an ankle, knee or something else he replied thusly:

That’s close. Or maybe it’s just a burning sensation when you pee. You never know.

Salo, derisively nicknamed the “Fragile Finn,” sat out game 3 but was on the ice during yesterday’s skate around moving around “gingerly.” He hopes to return to the ice for game 4 tonight.
