Ey Papi

Ortiz and Manny are both listed on the 2003 steroid report for using performance enhancing drugs. Surprised? NO! Shocked? A little. This sucks for any Sox fan for one reason and one reason only. Yankee fans can now toss stones at our 2004 and 2007 Championships. That sucks more than learning a legend was not quit what he claimed to be. The Sox who fought so hard in 2004 to bring the faithful what they longed for are now tainted. Granted all the MLB is tainted due to the rampant steroid era. Really is anyone off limits from this. Even the golden boys like, Ripken? Gwynn? This really opens the door for all these guys to be under the gun. As far as the Hall of Fame is concerned do these guys accomplishments get recognized? So many questions that you had hoped not to have to answer, but is anything off limits anymore. Is there anyone who won't cheat to achieve greatness? What do I tell my kids when I have them watch my idols on DVD or whatever the hell they'll invent to watch highlight tapes by then? Sad day in the nation. Not surprising, but a sad day.
