Manny Ramirez may soon announce that he may have mistakenly taken questionable substances while playing for the Red Sox - literally during games, and he may have inadvertently gotten David Ortiz involved.
Manny is waiting to hear from MLB whether it was legal to eat Snickers Bars and Twinkies between innings inside the left field scoreboard at Fenway Park.
Manny said "I always got a big high" whenever I ate a Snickers bar, and I apologize to all my fans if it was wrong. Manny went on to say that he never did Three Musketeers, Twix, or Milky Way bars. According to Manny, they just seemed to be "wrong". Manny also said that while he is not a tattletale, he once gave David Ortiz a package of twinkies during a game. Manny said he never actually saw David eat the twinkies, but Papi had them when Manny went up to hit, and they were gone when he came back. The Red Sox have refused comment.
Manny reportedly has formally asked the Commissioner's office which candy bars have not been banned by MLB so he can begin his 2009 training. Air Bud Selig said he would have to get back to Manny. Inside baseball sources have suggested that the Snickers bars controversy may be a contributing factor as to why Manny remains unsigned. When questioned about the story, Papi Ortiz took the "Fifth" - that is a Fifth Avenue candy bar, which he quickly ate.
