Great, more names to tarnish MLB history. The New York Times is reporting that Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz are said to be on the list of MLB players that tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003. Both heavy hitters, and both contributed to the Red Sox 86 year Championship drought…what now? I can see Manny being on the list…duh…but Ortiz? C’mon…Big Papi??? Say it ain’t so!
Of course it’s the New York Times that’s reporting this – I’m sure there are plenty of Sox haters working there, but still…news like this doesn’t look well on the famous come back of the Red Sox to pull through “the curse” and get 2 World Series Championships in 4 years after an 86 year slump.
