Breaking News Manny Retires

The really sad thing is the Dodgers will be paying him for probably the next 10 years

My Twitter inbox is exploding as  numerous media outlets are reporting Manny Ramirez has abruptly retired. Rumors are flying around the web that Ramirez had been notified of an issue under MLB’s Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. And, rather than continue with the process he chose to retire. There will be more to come on this, including most every member of the media saying ‘I told you so,” and writing terrible articles on Manny but for now I will restrain myself until all of the facts come in.
