Manny Ramirez Retires

Tampa outfielder/designated hitter Manny Ramirez has officially retired from Major League Baseball.

The 12-time All Star tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug during Spring Training, his second violate of the League's policy. Instead of accepting the 100-game suspension, Manny chose retirement.

Ramirez, 38, was one of baseball's elite hitters as recently as two seasons ago. He served a 50-game suspension while playing for the Dodgers in 2009. His 555 home runs rank 14th in MLB history.
Ramirez also owns the records for most postseason home runs and RBIs, with 29 and 78 respectively.


  1. Aw man, now I can't say "It's just manny being manny" anymore.

  2. That was my favorite MLB phrase, also. Tough way to go out for a guy who was the best hitter on the planet three years ago.
