Ron Washington of the Rangers Was Allegedly Blackmailed About His Cocaine Use

Ron Washington claims to have used cocaine for the first and only time on a road trip to Southern California last year. Someone allegedly tried to blackmail Washington about the yeyo use (experiment?), and the manager threw¬† himself at the mercy of the team. “A tearful, yet forced, confession to his superiors swayed any opinion about firing him on the spot in July of last season … it was later determined there was no evidence he was a consistent white line fever abuser.” Next time you fail a drug test after playing in the snow, tears + begging = saving your job.
