Whoops, todays news that Manny and Ortiz tested positive in 2003, has the Beaneaters crying in the World Series trophies. My advice, don't worry, there were probably a few juicers on Colorado and St. Louis. Needless to say, this is the hot topic on sports-talk radio across the country today.
I think we all knew Manny was juicing all along and after his failed test for female fertility drugs typically used to follow a juicing cycle, that was pretty much confirmed. But Ortiz had been adament that he was clean and been a staunch supporter of stiff penalties for player who test positive. So let me share some quotes from Ortiz on the subject.
"You can test me, All you gonna find is rice and beans"
"I think you clean up the game by the testing," Ortiz said. "I test you, you test positive, you're going to be out. Serious. I know that if I test positive for using any kind of substance, I know that I'm going to disrespect my family, the game, the fans, and everybody. I don't want to be facing that situation, so what I will do, I won't use."
And before today's game against the Oakland A's (where all this steroid stuff began in the first place), Ortiz had this to say: "I'm not talking about that anymore. I have no comment
And then Ortiz hits a 3 run, go-ahead homer..
