In what is probably the most surprising—yet not entirely shocking—sports news in quite some time, Manny Ramirez has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and will suspended for 50 games.

Other than soiling a pretty bulletproof legacy as the premiere power hitter in baseball, Ramirez was primarily known for his attitude. The Lebowski of organized sports, Ramirez avoided the steroid witch hunt by being too carefree—or just too dumb/funny—to be lumped in with the other overachieving (Clemens, A-Rod) players looking for a way to get ahead. His suspension will surely trigger countless questions (I thought steroids made you bald?), and will properly not lead to another tribute song...
