Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz Implicated In 2003 Doping Drug List

Ortiz and Ramirez

(Best Syndication News) Informants are telling news organizations that Dodger slugger Manny Ramirez and Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz were included in the 2003 list of players who tested positive for steroids or performance enhancing drugs. Manny and David helped drive the Red Sox to the championship in 2004 and 2007.

In 2003 Major League Baseball began testing players for drugs, but the results from that year were to remain sealed. Later the government grabbed the list in their ongoing investigation of performance enhancing drugs in professional sports. Now lawyers are spilling the beans anonymously about those involved, but they didn’t identify which drugs.

Although Ramirez has served a 50-game suspension for violating baseball’s drug policy, Ortiz has yet to be caught.

The agent for Manny has declined to comment but Ortiz said “I’m not talking about that anymore… I have no comment.”

In a case that could go to the U.S. Supreme Court, the players union is arguing that the government should not be allowed to keep the results because they illegally seized them back in 2003. The government says they are investigating drug crimes and want to find out the sources of those drugs.

Manny, who is currently back on the Dodger roster, admits to drinking protein shakes back in the Dominican Republic. “I don’t do that anymore because they don’t have the approval for that here”, he said. “I’ve taken and passed about 15 drug tests over the past five seasons.”
