Cappers Tips: Manny Ramirez

MLB Picks: Does Manny Need Help with the Ladies?

In another tale in the sage of Manny Ramirez goes to Hollywood, it was annouced that the LA Dodgers MLB Picks slugger has been suspened by Major League baseball for 50 games because of taking a baned susbstance. However sources are saying that substance Manny is being accused of taking is not a susbstance commonly used for performance enhancing (at least not on the MLB Picks diamond).According to accounts the drug that Manny is accused of using was to treat Manny’s erectile dyssfunction.


The substance that Manny Ramirez supposedly tested positive for was gonadotropin. Major League baseball’s list of banned substances includes the gonadotropins LH and HCG, which are most commonly used by women as fertility drugs. They also can be used to trigger testosterone production. Testosterone is curtailed by steroid use, and low testosterone can cause erectile dysfunction.

In discussing this issue with a professor at Penn State who is an expert on performance drugs stated…..“Testosterone and similar drugs are effective for erectile dysfunction in that they jazz up your sex drive,” ………. “But far more clinicians accept that affect with Viagra and Cialis. It’s hard for me to understand if it was erectile dysfunction why they would use it.”

Unfortunately for Manny he tested positive for this drug during spring training, then had the urine a “B” sample tested again more recently, and it also was positive. Manny did admit to having taken the substance and declined to appeal. His 50-game suspension begins today.

After the suspension announcement Ramirez released the following 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, is Manny having trouble with the ladies or is he just being Manny again?
