From reading Moneyball and listening to interview it does seem that Ron dabbles in the boogersuger a little bit...

I never knew that managers were tested for drugs.


Major league managers, coaches and other clubhouse personnel have been subject to drug testing since 2008, when MLB adopted the measure as one of George Mitchell's recommendations as part of his report regarding steroid and drug use in baseball. MLB mandates that any non-playing personnel who either fail a test or admit to drug use be subject to counseling and a substance-abuse program developed by a doctor approved by baseball. First-time offenders are generally not subject to punitive measures such as a suspension, pending the commissioner's discretion, and their names are not made public. (Tests are administered randomly once a year to all non-playing personnel who work around the clubhouse, which also includes trainers, clubhouse and equipment managers, massage therapists and traveling secretaries.) So by calling MLB headquarters even before his test results were known, Washington was subjecting himself to the substance-abuse program regardless of the results.

Pardon my ignorance because I'm one of the only people I know who have never tried it...but is cocaine something that people usually do just once?

It's something they say they are going to try only once.

I did it once. Gave me a damn headache. Kept me up late. Didn't get me high. I guess I should thank my lucky stars I didn't like it.

I truly doubt Ron Washington, though... seeing as how he is 57 years old. Who decides to experiment once at age 57?

Haha right?

My favorite part is the article spinning him admitting to his employers and the commissioner AFTER HE TOOK THE TEST that he had used as being honorable or something. He took the test. He new he was going to get popped so he tried to stem the tide by admitting it before they got results.

I'm not sure - they were all in colleges scattered around when they tried it...I never actually saw them experiment with anything...

Makes me nostalgic for the good ol days ( 80'S Mets, Pirates ) when taking drugs was for having fun

I think the article said that they test non players once a year. You have to wonder how often he was doing it

Ron Washington's wiki lol:

Whenever Washington played, the game had to be frequently stopped and the base lines rechalked due to Washington mistaking them for a whole lotta cocaine.

wiki now:
On March 17, 2010, Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated reported that Washington tested positive for cocaine during the 2009 season and admitted to using cocaine.[9] This may or may not explain why the base lines had to be rechalked when Washington played the game. Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

They talked about this all night last night on XM and were talking about it again this morning...apparently many people think he should have been suspended at least for 10 games or something...

I do think it's pretty dumb of the Rangers to think this would never come out...

THEBOSS84
03-18-10, 08:55 AM
I don't think he should have been suspended at all. I think the embarrassment was enough. He seemed so genuine in his interview with Pedro Gomez. He was truly thankful to keep his job - it'll NEVER happen again.
