Manny Ramirez suspension......?

Here's my question Manny was banned for 50 games for his HCG levels being too high. Now the experts are saying steroid users do this to restart their natural testosterone production as they come off a steroid cycle. This is true, but how do we know that Manny and his wife aren't trying to have another kid there last two were born in '03 and '06 and '09 or '10 fit will for a natural progression. Maybe he and his wife are going through fertility treatment (which could be a "personal problem" and are getting ready to through IVF. This would be a valid reason to have high levels of HGC in his system.

Now granted he may have problems concieving a kid because of steroid use but until he's proven guilty of actual use, why jump the gun?

    according to an ESPN report, the drug used by Manny Ramirez is human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), a women's fertility drug typically used by steroid users to restart their body's natural testosterone production as they come off a steroid cycle. it is similar to Clomid, the drug Barry Bonds, Jason Giambi and others used as clients of BALCO.

    The chances are great that Manny has been taking "roids" for

    most of his career. This is not just a fluke.

    I don't buy your "story". What Manny just up and takes a

    fertility/testosterone booster drug, without knowing what it is?

    With a major league baseball drug policy in effect for the last 2 years,

    he's got to be aware of anything he takes.

    He took this drug, knowing what it was. He took the risk that he

    wouldn't get caught. He lost this time.

    I don't buy his play dumb act either. That's getting a little bit old

    with all these guys.

    He is not worth the fuss.

    Most of those guys are just physical prostitutes anyway. They will do what ever they can get buy with in order to make money.

    Who really cares.....those kind of people are not worth it.

    It doesn't matter what he did to ingest the illegal material. The point is, it's illegal material. No tolerance with that at all.
