Manny Ramirez, El Maniaco, Jesus, and Other Championship Performances: Part II

Under the policy that mistake is now my responsibility. I have been advised not to say anything more for now. I do want to say one other thing; I’ve taken and passed about 15 drug tests over the past five seasons.

Victim of circumstance, or long-time steroid user?  You be the judge.  Note, it’s very easy to pass 15 drug tests over five seasons by using time travel.
