Manny Ramirez is suspended for 50 games. Look down and youll see that Ramirezs suspension, handed down on May 6 for violating baseballs drug policy, is also ranked the worst moment of the season. The positive view is that Ramirezs absence let the Dodgers know they could win without him. Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp established themselves as All-Star-caliber players in his absence. One of the teams least popular players over the last two seasons, Juan Pierre emerged as one of the most popular, in part because of how he played in place of Ramirez in left field.
