Looks like he tested positive for something and decided that he was just going to go away than face the music Click Here (sports.espn.go.com)

Can't say it's a shocker that he is the first to go out this way. He's made for some of the oddest moments. Baseball just got a little less weird.

Also not a shocker when you consider that the Dodgers are still on the hook to pay for him through...(wait for it)...2014!!!

I will now flush my Dodger hat down the toilet and then stick my head in it.

However, I will take solace in knowing that with one PED bust and a suspected second PED bust, Manny will never come close to reaching the HOF.

When Manny wanted to be, he was as good a hitter there was. Especially right handed.

Favorite vintage Manny story: When O.J. Bronco chase happened, he thought they were talking about his teammate Chad Ogea.

SO, I guess we can replace Manny in that "who's the best foreign born player" thread.

Based on his recent output, if he was on "performance enhancing" drugs, he should ask for a refund.

Thanks for the magical second half of '08, Manny. (Hey, they caught him in '09. Let me have my memories.)
