Links turned up in Boston that may be revealing about Manny Ramirez' steroid use, the AP reported`.
Police confiscated steroids from the car of Nicholas Alex Cyr, 27, in July 2008 during the guard's late-night return trip from a charity event hosted by Josh Beckett.
Cyr fingered fellow guard Jared Remy, the 30-year-old son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, as the supplier. After an investigation by the team and Major League Baseball that the men claim was superficial, both were fired.
Damon, who spent the 2002-05 seasons in Boston, only recalled seeing Cyr.
Interesting that Damon said he was unaware of the steroid use outside of the locker room? Huh? Gamloing? I am shocked gambling in Casablanca.
Both Cyr and Remy said they had close relationships with Manny Ramirez, while Remy said he talked steroids with a former personal assistant of Ortiz's. Ramirez served a 50-game suspension for violating MLB's drug policy earlier this season and both sluggers, according to a report Thursday, were to said to have used performance enhancers in 2003.
As was the case when Thursday's report was released, Damon wouldn't comment on the potential steroid usage by his former teammates. Any steroid use, he said, was "outside" of the locker room.
"That's what those guys decided to do on their time, I had too much other stuff to deal with," Damon said. "Play baseball and play with my kids."
"I was totally unaware of everything," he added.

Cyr and Remy, who have worked together since 2004, both said they told MLB they did not have direct knowledge of steroid use by the Red Sox. Remy denied that he gave Cyr the vial of Anadrol police found, but acknowledged he is a steroids user.
Cyr said he sometimes would shop for Ramirez in the slugger's car. Remy said he would sometimes serve as the lone guard for Ramirez's early-morning workouts at Fenway Park.
