Manny Ramirez Steroid Cycle

Manny Ramirez is regarded by many as one of the most-gifted MLB players. He is an admired name in the world of professional baseball, and he is still remembered for great batting skill and power. Born as Manuel Arístides "Manny" Ramírez Onelcida on May 30, 1972, the Dominican-American professional baseball outfielder, who played in Major League Baseball and the Chinese Professional Baseball League, was one of 25 players to hit 500 career home runs.

History

Manny Ramirez played in Major League Baseball (MLB) with the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Chicago White Sox. A nine-time Silver Slugger, Manny Ramirez appeared in 12 All-Star Games and his 29 postseason home runs are the most in big league history.

The Cleveland Indians selected Ramirez with the 13th pick of the 1991 draft, and Manny was assigned to the Rookie-level Burlington Indians for his professional debut. He led the league in total bases and slugging and was chosen by Baseball America as short-season Player of the Year for slugging 19 homers and driving in 63 runs in 59 games. Ramirez was named "Minor League Player of the Year" by Baseball America in 1993 while hitting .333 with 31 homers and 145 RBIs in 129 combined games with the Double-A Canton-Akron Indians and Triple-A Charlotte Knights.

MLB

Ramirez made his MLB debut on September 2, 1993 and played his first MLB All-Star Game in 1995. In 2000, Manny signed with the Boston Red Sox and led the Red Sox to World Series Championships in 2004 and 2007. In August 2008, Manny Ramirez was named National League (NL) Player of the Month. Ramirez hit his 400th home run off Gil Meche of the Seattle Mariners on May 15, 2005 and became the 31st player in history to hit 450 home runs on June 10. Manny Ramirez hit his 500th home run on May 31, 2008, vs. Baltimore Orioles off Chad Bradford.

Doping Allegations

In 2003, the New York Times released a report showing that Manny Ramirez tested positive for PEDs. This was after a drug test was done by the MLB without any punishment to the players. It was called a “survey,” and it allowed MLB to gauge the level of drug abuse in the league. Out of the other MLB players who tested positive the first time in the “survey test,” a select group was retested and all came back positive for anabolic-androgenic steroids. In 2009, Manny Ramirez tested positive for using HCG, and in 2011 he tested positive again for performance enhancing drugs. Therefore, we'll make the assumption Manny Ramirez was possibly involved in the steroid allegations and use somehow. As a result, everyone wants to know a potential steroid cycle for Mr. Ramirez. It's not easy to get one together in 2003 terms, but we can play the guessing game based on our 2015 knowledge of what a baseball player could use if he's not tested.

Why were these drugs used during the cycle?

Oral Testosterone – oral testosterone was regularly given by BALCO labs to people during the Victor Conte days. It helps recovery and allows for longer training sessions.

HGH – this is a regular addition to PED runs. HGH is used to reduce bodyfat, increase muscle mass and help recovery after training.

Trenbolone Acetate – this short ester trenbolone was regularly used in derivative form known as “the clear,” so it's likely most baseball guys were doing it. It's used to gain serious strength and amazing power.

Cardarine – this is a very popular booster of endurance and cardio, it also helps keep bodyfat low. It's used in conjunction with trenbolone, to combat the cardio side effects tren has.

Potential drugs

Winstrol – just like Ben Johnson back in the day, many current athletes have tested positive for stanozolol. It's used to help boost speed and reduce bodyfat.

N2Guard – this supplement is used to help the liver and kidneys avoid serious damage and side effects. The product is a staple for steroid cycle support.
