Manny positive for doping in '03, NYT says

Manny Ramirez and his Boston Red Sox teammate David Ortiz were among the 100-plus major league players who tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003, the New York Times says today in a story citing "lawyers with knowledge of the results." That's the list of results that the players were promised would remain secret, and for the most part has remained confidential with some high profile exceptions, led by Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez. Manny's agent, Scott Boras, had no comment.

Back in Mannywood: DirecTV has already incorporated Time Warner Cable's gaffe on last week's big home run into a radio spot, a few LA Observed readers have emailed.
