From my "MLB Preview from A-Z" on opening day:
"The biggest name this offseason was obviously A-Rod, but I guarantee you that another big name will surface sometime this season. One seemingly always does. Any bets on what that name will be?"
The answer to that question seems to be Manny Ramirez, who was suspended today for 50 games for violation of the leagues Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.
Ramirez claimed it was the result of a medication prescribed to him by a doctor in Miami. According to an article by SI's Tom Verducci, a source said the substance was not a steroid, but still a banned performance enhancing substance.
I'll get back to this more later as more details surface.
Manny UPDATE HERE. Ummm, I don't even know what to say about that.
