Manny Being Manny

After coming off three horrendous seasons with the Dodgers, White Sox and Tampa Bay Rays, Manny Ramirez has reinstated from the league’s retirement list. Manny left the league in a Manny-esque fashion after testing positive for “banned” substances. He not only retired, but he simply just grabbed all of his things from the locker room and left without telling anyone in the organization. Performance Enhancing Drugs aside, Manny will go down as one of the best hitters of all time in the majors. Up until the last three years, he hit above .300 and 30 home runs for almost his entire career. He was also an essential component of the 2004 Red Sox roster that ended an 86 year World Series drought in Boston. Manny was always known for his good hitting, terrible defense and doing everything his own way. The common saying regarding Ramirez is , “its just Manny being Manny”.

Even if Manny is picked up by a team, he will have to sit out 50 games for using a banned substance, so it does not seem likely that Manny will ever play in the MLB again.

  1. Seriously. Who would pay money to be burned like that? I think he’s seriously burned all his MLB bridges.
