"I would suggest everybody get tested, not random, everybody," he said. "You go team by team. You test everybody three, four times a year and that's about it." - David Ortiz, Feb., 2009Ah yes, Big Papi...so are you willing to walk away from the game for a year? Ortiz claimed he didn't know he failed, yet all those who did were informed at the time. Ortiz has also been quoted as saying he once drank a supplement shake and he really wasn't sure what was in it. Nice set up there Papi in case you ever fail a test. Ortiz won't comment further on the report until he gets more info.
This of course is no shock. Ortiz stunk with the Twins and suddenly emerged with the Red Sox. Perhaps we now know why.
And of course there is the Man-child. Failed a test this year, so obviously it was no shock that Ramirez failed a test prior to this.
And again I shake my head at Bud Selig for looking the other way for so long and helping to damage baseball for a decade. You had no idea, puh-lease.
Finally, choke on Boston. :)
