Hello on this Wednesday, only minutes before afternoon Red Sox baseball at Fenway Park. I came across this news blurb just now from the New York Times. It's hard to believe and more will be said.

"Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz, the sluggers who propelled the Boston Red Sox to end an 86-year World Series championship drought and to capture another title three years later, WERE among the roughly 100 Major League Baseball players to test positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003, according to lawyers with knowledge of the results.

Baseball first tested for steroids in 2003, and the results from that season were supposed to remain anonymous. The information about Ortiz emerged through interviews with multiple lawyers and others connected to the pending litigation. The lawyers spoke anonymously because the testing information is under seal by a court order. The lawyers did not identify which drugs were detected.

Unlike Ramirez, who recently served a 50-game suspension for violating baseball’s drug policy, Ortiz had not previously been linked to performance-enhancing substances."

Oh my goodness. Will this spread throughout the sports world? Don't ask me. The Sox need a win this afternon. That's all I know.
