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.
