Manny Ramirez retires

According to a variety of reports, Tampa Bay DH Manny Ramirez has retired.

Reportedly, there was an "issue" with MLB's Drug Testing Program which contributed to this decision.

Given that Ramirez has already been suspended once, a second strike would have meant a 100 game suspension, and it may be that Ramirez prefers to retire rather than deal with that.

Or it may be something else.  We shall see.

All the folks here who complained because the Rangers didn't sign Ramirez this offseason, please go into the comments and admit you were wrong.
