Manny Ramirez


Recommended Posts

I would love for Manny to get back to the majors just for the entertainment value. He has to be one of the more amusing players in MLB in recent memory.

I mean, would anybody even be that surprised if he was called up to the Rangers this week and started at DH against the O's on Thursday, and looked absolutely terrible striking out in his first three at bats, then convinced Ron Washington not to pinch hit for him by performing a traditional Chinese dance he learned while playing in Taiwan, then hit a dramatic game changing homer off Tommy Hunter but was instead called out for running the wrong way around the bases, then high fived an umpire and proposed marriage to a random fan on his way back to the Rangers dugout, then in the middle of his post-game press conference it was found out he had been banished from MLB for paying all NL pitchers millions of dollars to pitch terribly whenever facing Yasiel Puig thereby creating Puigmania in LA in order to make Dodgers fans finally forget the unfulfilled promises of Mannywood, which would eventually aid Manny in his plans to run for mayor of LA and then use his political power as mayor to make his way into the Hollywood film scene starring as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Spanish language remake of Pirates of the Caribbean??

I still don't understand how he gets away with not spending 100 roster days suspended. MJ walked away from basketball for several years and came back great, why wouldn't others just take the same path, the economic reward could be worth it (yes I know he is donating his prorated salary, but the point it s the same).

He was always ridiculous but funny. l still remember the play at OPACY in about 2004- 2006 where he jumped up and made the catch over the left field wall, high-fived a surprised Sox fan in that row, then threw out a really slow runner that had tagged from first. Hilarious, at least in retrospect.

    • Agreed.  HK is a priority play and makes it that much easier on Buck's decision making.  It's the personnel decisions over the next few months/year(s) that will be interesting (and what triggers the derailed threads).
    • Had an I'm happy for him, and a chuckle, reaction to Jon Singleton making it back to the big leagues just before Elias and Sig's team comes to town.    Evan Drellich's book had some of the story that around the time Singleton got one of the earliest extensions for someone on a prospect list, he was also battling some substance issues. The Brewers have long term been the NL Rays for me, but this year is unrolling for them more like they are the NL Twins.     Their record is short of what they probably hoped in part because of lots of injuries, but in the forgiving Central they are still at the top with the Pirates, and have a good lead on everyone. Their Bats went to sleep yesterday against a rookie making their MLB debut, but they had a good wraparound to Monday weekend in Cincinnati, winning 3 out of 4.     SP Matchups, Active Roster K-BB rank, 40 IP minimum, MLB-wide: (87) Gibson v. (62) Peralta (69) Kremer v. (67) Burnes (68) Bradish v. (71) Rea Burnes had the drama with his Arb hearing last offseason when the Club only had stellar performances to nitpick.    He hasn't pitched up to his best yet. BATS, Fangraphs wRC+ gives BAL a 105-87 edge entering the series.    Brice Turang is a prospect shortstop who has gotten some extra run with Willy Adames injury but MLB Arms are crushing him.     They've been going with Owen Miller in the 2nd spot between Yelich and Rowdy Tellez at the top of the order.     Luis Urias just back from 60-day IL with hamstring pull is 0-for-8 to open his MLB season....he helped Mexico's good WBC run.
    • They’re not promoting him so that he can sit on the bench in AAA.  
    • There are 8 weeks before the trade deadline.  Long time before teams need to decide whether they’re sellers.   Honestly, that’s why I don’t pay much attention to threads like these in early June.  The season is only 59 games in, and it’ll be 106 games in at the deadline.  A million things can change between now and then.  If I were king of the realm, trade deadline threads wouldn’t even exist until the all star break at the earliest.     
    • He is in his 5th season with St Louis, so I’m not sure he qualifies as a 10/5 guy yet or not.  I thought you had to complete 5 seasons? I know it’s 10 years and 5 consecutive years with your current org. Does a partial season count as the 5th year or do you need to complete it?  Not seeing anything concrete either way. Not that it matters since PG has a full NTC anyway.
    • So far for this year it’s looking like we should get a rental SP like Stroman or Giolito. That would allow us to pitch GR, and Hall, out of the bullpen in September. There’s a lot of season left, and still a good bit of time before the deadline.
