Back in 2003 David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez tested postive for steroids. In my opinion the Red Sox should have their 2003 and 2007 World Series Championships removed for this disgraceful act. But I'm a hard core fan who believes steroid users should be banned for life and their records and stats expunged. Leaving a huge void in statistics, and records over the last decade.
"Here we go ... Lawyers with "knowledge of the results" of MLB's 2003 steroid tests says that both Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz are among the players who tested positive for performance enhancing drugs.
As everyone will gladly point out, 2003 was Ortiz's first season in Boston. It was also the season he saw a significant improvement in his stats. He set then career highs in HR and RBI and saw his .OPS jump about 130 points. This is also the first time Manny has been connected to the 2003 tests, even though he was suspended 50 games this year for the same offense. They join Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, Sammy Sosa, Jason Grimsley and David Segui as the players who have been outed from the infamous list of 104 violators." via Deadspin
