Why Are We Celebrating Cheaters?

"Manny Ramirez is back in the big leagues, looking like a guy who missed 50 games.

Returning from his suspension for violating baseball's drug policy, the Los Angeles slugger barely hit the ball out of the infield in the Dodgers' 6-3 win over the San Diego Padres on Friday night.

He did provide a lot of energy to the team with baseball's best record."- Foxsports.com

I will stop you right there.

Why are we celebrating a cheater? Last night Albert Pujols hit an eighth Grand Slam(his fourth on the year and 10th career beating Stan The Man Musial) to give the Cardinals a 4-3 lead.

Then with it tied 4-4 in the ninth inning Jarret Hoffpauir(making his MLB debut), who walked to load the bases for Albert in the eighth, sent a ball over the head of Edwin Encarnacion to give the Cards a 6-4 lead and the eventual 7-4 win. Ryan Franklin recorded his 20 save.

By the way that's less then K-Rod who has three blown saves and a 2-2 record. Yet have you heard of this? No! Not unless you watched the game, were on the cardinals website(STI Cardinals), or watched MLB tonight(MLB network) at the right time!

This is ridiculous. We cover a cheater instead of the Best Player in The Game! When was the last article about Pujols hitting the Triple Crown(besides the millions here on BR)? This is ridiculous.

Tim Lincecum is also going for the Pitching Triple Crown. Did you hear about that? Most likely not unless you read my article about it!

When you look on the featured stories list this probably won't be there. In fact I will be lucky to get 10 views! That is because by the time this is published there will be five million articles on Manny.

Now it is disgusting that a good informative article is pushed out of view for the view of a article about a cheater.
