Chris Young goes off on Manny, "fans shouldn't cheer"

 

Agree or disagree with the former Rangers' comments?  Would you have booed Manny?

 

Manny Ramirez wasn't welcomed back with open arms by everyone at Petco Park.

There was a particularly strong voice of dissent in the San Diego Padres' clubhouse, that of pitcher Chris Young. Young said Sunday that he "absolutely" considered Ramirez a cheater.

"How else can you view it?" Young asked. "There's no black and white."

Young, who is on the disabled list, said he was particularly disappointed with the ovations Ramirez received over the weekend.

"I think it sends the wrong message to kids," Young said. "Juan Pierre should be the one getting those ovations, in my opinion."

Asked if he thought fans were becoming increasingly indifferent toward the use of performance-enhancing drugs in baseball, Young replied, "If so, there may be a problem. It speaks to the severity of the illegal drug use in the game. I think that if fans have become desensitized to it, it shows how severe the problem was. It should be something that still has that shock value. It should still be considered an extremely negative and immoral thing. It shouldn't be accepted."
