    Scott Boras, die.

    Why is it every Scott Boras client tests positive or is suspected of steroid use? Does the man freakin' include it in his "welcome to my agency" packet?

    When you're making $25 million a year, you better double check every drug that's going into your body. Blaming it on "something my doctor gave me" isn't an excuse.

    I'm disappointed to say the least. In a weird way though, I'm not really that surprised. At this point I think I'm pretty numb to it. The show must go on though. Sadly the Dodgers were a .500 team before Manny so it remains to be seen if they go back to that level of mediocrity. I miss the days of Lasorda, Scoscia, Hershizer and Gibson.

    I think you already know the answer to your questions.

    SSHHH, what's that noise in the distance???

    ...It's millions of Red Sox fans rejoicing!

    Guess Manny should have cross referenced his prescriptions with the drug policy list.

    I don't buy the "My doctor prescribed it" bullshit. What a convenient excuse. Maybe his cousin gave it to him over the counter from the Dominican Republic.

    I have to give Manny props on his response. Even though his statement was written for him, he is somewhat accepting responsibility:

    He understands MLB's policy and basically know there's no loophole to get out of it.

    How? He throws his doctor under the bus, albeit qualified as you said! Boras probably wrote it.

    I get paid $25 million dollars a year and I'm too dense to know what I'm putting in my body.

    Shut. The. Fuck. Up.

    Moreso the admission that he understands the statement in the MLB policy. I fully expected him to come out and say "Screw MLB policy. I'm Manny!".

    You get paid $25 million a year? I should have slept with you when I got the chance.

    I didn't know the prescription from his doctor was a sepository.
