A Question For Manny Ramirez

Manny Ramirez is either really, really dumb or he just doesn't care.

As everyone knows, he retired yesterday after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. This makes three times that he has tested positive, not two, as most media outlets are reporting. The New York Times reminded readers today that Manny was one of the players, along with Alex Rodriguez, who tested positive during survey testing back in 2003.

So he got caught three times. I have one question: Has Manny Ramirez ever heard of HGH?  Don't get me wrong. I'm not a proponent of performance-enhancing drugs. Unlike some fans I do care whether or not the game is tainted. But there is no test for HGH. Why didn't Manny just use that if he wanted to enhance his performance?

I guess it's not that simple. Or is it that Manny is that simple? All I know is that he looks pretty stupid right now.
