Because Andrew will never post this…

Manny didnt need Cycles in the good old days.  But LA is a place of vanity and deceit.

Pudgy Manny didn't need Cycles in the good old days. But LA is a place of vanity and deceit.

Manny just got suspended 50 games for using a banned substance.  It’s something people take when coming off a roid cycle to restore natural hormone balance.  He could also be trying to have a baby, but I don’t think Junior is one of his favorite movies, so I’m sticking with the ‘roids theory.  The timing doesn’t make a ton of sense … he already has his contract for a couple years … but it certainly could have been happening last fall as he searched for a new deal and wanted to prove his enduring power.

In order to give him a fair shake, Manny sez, “Recently I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was OK to give me. … I do want to say one other thing; I’ve taken and passed about 15 drug tests over the past five seasons.  …  I’m sorry about this whole situation.”

We know you’re sorry, Manny, that just cost you $8mm of Boras’ hard fought money.

Johnny Damon learned this lesson too: Red Sox heroes are better off not leaving Boston.
