Watching Sports Center yesterday, the anchors were up in arms due to the fact that Manny Ramirez was fourth in MLB’s All-Star voting for NL outfielders. They blathered on about how much of a PR disaster it would be if he made it as a starter, even though he’s suspended for 50 games for PEDs (he’ll return in early July, a few games before the ASG). Since voting for the game is fan-driven (because baseball is America’s favorite you know), the cries of foul from the media’s talking heads, managers & owners, even the commissioner would be null & void if enough fans voted Manny in.
Immediately, I thought “Somebody needs to start a site for that.”
Thankfully, someone has.
Enter Vote For Manny and their mantra.
To highlight the silliness that are the MLB rules towards PED users as well as their “head in the sand” approach to this situation. Rather than confront it head-on, MLB is choosing to do nothing and simply hope there are three higher vote getters in the NL OF….
…Not to mention all of the other stupid things that now surround the ASG, including the “winne
As I heard someone say before, I don’t care if Manny used Performance Enhancing Drugs. His purpose is to be the best athlete he can & if he hits a mega-human amount of homeruns due to steroids, that’s okkaaaayyyy. My entertainment was enhanced as a result, and, hell, that’s the only way I’m
watching baseball not changing the channel when Baseball Tonite comes on. Don’t give me that crap about “but he’s a role model for kids.” Enh…sorry, I don’t care.
My favorite football player growing up was Lawrence Taylor, the hardest motherfucker to ever play defense. He cracked heads & ended QB’s careers. And you know what fueled his excellence? By his own admission, coke & crack. I loved the guy; I didn’t grow up to smoke crack. Furthermore, I can’t complain. I smoke almost three packs of cigs per day to perform as such a high level such as I do. Whatever it takes to get you there holmes.
If my kid can’t watch, listen & learn that any drugs are bad for your system, then I suck as a parent. Chances of my son going pro in baseball are one in a gazillion; odds of him getting some arse are much more in his favor, having a slight edge because he’s my progeny. If he wants to use steroids, have man tits & be impotent when that first chance to get smoke hams comes, that would be an unwise choice that I’m almost sure he won’t make.
See, I don’t need Manny to raise my urchins. I’ll do that with a belt & stern voice just like my dad did with me. What I need Manny to do is be on the field, hitting the leather off the ball so I can marvel & tell my kids about it. Not explaining to them why the fuck Barry Bonds name has an asterisk beside it in the history books.
