Manny’s Performance Enhancement for the Bedroom

As it turns out, the drug that Manny Ramirez tested positive for was a SEXUAL enhancer, not unlike Viagra.

According to Yahoo’s Tim Brown and Steve Henson:

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the substance is supposed to boost sex drive. It is not Viagra, but a substance that treats the cause rather providing a temporary boost in sexual performance, the source said.

According to Manny’s official statement:

“Recently I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was okay to give me. Unfortunately, the medication was banned under our drug policy. Under the policy that mistake is now my responsibility. I have been advised not to say anything more for now. I do want to say one other thing; I’ve taken and passed about 15 drug tests over the past five seasons.”

So there you have it — Manny was indeed trying to hit more homeruns, but in the bedroom rather than the ballfield.


A-Rod Tested Positive for PEDs

According to four independent sources, SI is reporting that Alex Rodriguez tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.

The results of that year’s survey testing of 1,198 players were meant to be anonymous under the agreement between the commissioner’s office and the players association. Rodriguez’s testing information was found, however, after federal agents, armed with search warrants, seized the ’03 test results from Comprehensive Drug Testing, Inc., of Long Beach, Calif., one of two labs used by MLB in connection with that year’s survey testing.

A-Rod was approached by reporters at a Miami gym, and he did not deny the accusations:

“You’ll have to talk to the union,” said Rodriguez, the Yankees’ third baseman since his trade to New York in February 2004. When asked if there was an explanation for his positive test, he said, “I’m not saying anything.”

Reportedly, Rodriguez tested positive for both testosterone and a steroid known as Primobolan.
