Rather than face another round to MLB drug policy

If it's the same one he got busted the 50 games for, should we expect him on the upcoming season of "16 and Pregnant"

No way in hell he is a Hall of Famer. If Palmeiro or Mcgwire aren't in, no way he is.

Manny was my favorite Red Sox player of modern times and it's so disappointing to see what he's become. I want to think that all this stuff is post Red Sox, but there's no evidence other than the fact he didn't get popped in Boston to support it.

Nobody imagines that NFL locker rooms are drug free, but few would think that players on the best teams would be willing to risk their very lives to make it to the highest levels of the sport. That seems to be the case.

According to an investigative report posted on the Charlotte Observer's Web site on Sunday, a number of Carolina Panthers used a vast quantity and tremendous variety of performance-enhancing drugs during the team's 2004 Super Bowl season.

Several of [the players] were using disturbing, particularly alarmingly high amounts with high dosages for long durations -- some in combinations," said Dr. Gary Wadler, who prepared a report for the U.S. Attorney's Office that was used to prosecute Shortt. "This wasn't just a passing flirtation with these prohibited substances. When I see [prescriptions] 'renewed five times,' I say, 'What are you trying to accomplish?' "

Probably.

Our society is amazing. If you give a lame-ass apology, you are pretty much good to go.

Denial gets you nothing. Anger gets you in even bigger trouble.

What sport isn't disgraced at this point? I don't see the point, but why does everyone constantly make baseball the villain of professional sports? PEDs don't exist in other sports? There aren't athletes in the NFL, NBA, NHL, NASCAR, PGA, NCAA that are douchebags and cheat? I don't get it.
Everyone jump on board the national media hate baseball bandwagon.
