So Manny Ramirez got a 50 game suspension for violating the Joint Drug Agreement still hasn't sunk in. Ramirez will not appeal the suspension and will be eligible to come back on July 3, the start of a weekend series at the San Diego Padres. He will lose in excess of $7 million in salary due to the suspension.
Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt issued a statement saying, “We share the disappointment felt by our fans, our players, and every member of our organization. We support the policies of Major League Baseball, and we will welcome Manny back upon his return.”
This will be the only statement by the Dodgers until Joe Torre meets with the press at 4:30 today.
