they should have suspended him for the entire season, 50 games? i guess the league would like to see him back at the end of this season.

I don't think he should have even been suspended when its a sport full of cheating.. they steal signs, spit on balls, used corked bats, scuff up balls, bet on games etc .. nearly half of the best players in baseball are using some form of enhaced performance drug so my question is when is the last time someone was suspended so long for a dirty test?

They are over re-acting as if he did the unthinkable.. he's being made an example of. In the process they are ruining their own sport and its publicity and with food,parking and tickets rising they'll lose much more money than they can imagine, especially when our players have gotten so bad that we can't even win the world baseball classic.

Rod Carew, Pete Rose, Nolan Ryan, JR Richards, Johnny Bench, Reggie Jackson, Wade Boggs, Fred Lynn, would have never repped the US like these bums we got out there nowadays.

Is this a surprise though?

I admit I was kind of shocked b/c Manny seems like a laid back cat...

But I think it sucks for the fans b/c prices are ridiculous and jerseys are expensive and yet these clowns are raking in millions of $$$ to cheat...

MLB should give something back to the fans b/c we are the ones that support these teams...

i think 50 is the automatic for first offenders on substance cases.
100 on the second and the entire season on the third.
or something like that.
heard the dudes on espn talking about it when the whole A-Rod thing was going on.

Maybe MLB needs to regulate their game better, in 1998 the commisioner had to know that Sosa and McGwire were cheating their ways to new records. And I am sure they knew A-Rod and Manny were using illegal substances. But homeruns sells tickets so MLB is willing to turn the other way, but when someone is caught they have impose a punishment. I wonder if they will ever clean up the game.

i know
i was just trying to point out the fact that the NL west is a wack division.

Manny being suspended is a good thing for the other dodger players tho.
This will let them know that they can win games without him.

Yep.

I don't know which way to lean... on one hand MLB is under pressure to clean it up, and already appear to be cleaning it up. But on the otherhand, they were juicing up when Canseco was playing so why should the others records stand.... especially McGuire..

They should let them take whatever they want to take- at the end of the day it wont affect baseball it effects the player. They don't have to broadcast that the players are using anything.. its a deciscion that they and/or congress imposed.

As you said.. homeruns sell, and the game has been dirty for years so let them play. Or minize the suspensions and after so many just ban the player. Make it like the alcohol or drug policy of Darryl STrawberry or Steve Howe.

Manny spoke and said, "I didnt rape or kill anyone" ---- ok. I guess he wants some credit for some shit he is supposed to do.
