Attention Baseballers...

NEW YORK (AP) - "Manny Ramirez was suspended for 50 games by Major League Baseball on Thursday, becoming the latest high-profile player ensnared in the sport's drug scandals.

The commissioner's office didn't announce the specific violation by the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, who will lose about one-third of his $25 million salary.

"Recently I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was OK to give me," Ramirez said in a statement issued by the players' union."


In other news, President Barack Obama has sent staffers to interview Manny Ramirez to gauge any possible interest he'd have with signing on to a high cabinet-level position with the DEA.
