Train Renck

Here's a letter I sent to the Denver Post this morning. I dragged my feet on it -- the offending article appeared last Sunday -- so who knows if they'll run it. But I had to get it off my chest.

Troy Renck asserts that Manny Ramirez failed a drug test "with a banned fertility drug appearing in his system." This is patently false.

Manny's drug test indicated elevated levels of testosterone. Further tests showed a high ratio of testosterone to epitestosterone -- an indicator of synthetic testosterone use.

A prescription for human chorionic gonadotropin (HGC) was found in the medical file Ramirez turned over to authorities -- not “in his system.” Ironically, a simple search of confirms this.

While I'm no defender of Manny, it's clear that he does his job much better than Mr. Renck does his.
