MANNY RAMIREZ RETIRES AFTER INFORMED OF NEW DRUG POLICIES
Tue, 12 Apr 2011 11:17 AM EDT

Tampa Bay Rays slugger Manny Ramirez told Major League Baseball on Friday that he is retiring after being informed of an issue that arose under MLB’s drug guidelines. Odds.

Ramirez tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug during spring training and preferred retirement rather than face a 100-game suspension. Ramirez previously served a 50-game suspension for violating the drug policy while he was part of the Los Angeles Dodgers team.
A second positive test under the course will outcome in a 100-game ban, and a third test results in a lifetime ban. Scores.

The troublesome Ramirez left the team earlier this week to attend to what the Rays called a “family issue”. Manager Joe Maddon said on Thursday that he expected Ramirez to be available for Friday night’s game at the Chicago White Sox, but he never showed up.

The Rays, winless after their first half a dozen games, hoped the Manny they signed this season would be the same Manny who was MVP of the 2004 World Series when he was with the traditionally winning Boston Red Sox club.

In his peak, Manny Ramirez was one of the game’s great hitters, finishing in the top five in MVP voting four times. He led the American League with a .349 batting average in 2002, finished second the following year and had an American League best: 43 home runs in the 2004 season. Las Vegas odds.
