Manny Ramirez is without a doubt one of the most powerful and productive hitters to ever play the game of baseball. Manny has a career average of .313 and has hit 555 home runs in his colorful career. Manny is a 12-time All-Star and has won the Hank Aaron award twice. He has won two World Series rings with the Boston Red Sox (2004,2007) and was the World Series MVP in 2004.
Despite his hitting success, Manny Ramirez has been a serious cancer to any team that has taken him in. His immature antics, his laziness, and his lack of passion has irritated every team he has ever played for and has resulted in him switching teams on more than a few occasions. Manny Ramirez has also been plagued by the accusations surrounding his usage of steroids.
The past couple of years have been a struggle for Manny as he has dealt with a ton injuries and a lot of criticism. On the occasions that Manny has played, he has hit for a high average but has been dealing with a serious power outage. Whether it be age, injuries, or the lack of a certain performance-enhancing drug, one thing is certain, Manny is not the same Manny he once was and it appears as though retirement is not far away.
Manny would still like to play and buzz was generated when he spoke to ESPN Deportes about how he liked the Toronto Blue Jays and how he has always wanted to play with them. Ramirez has had very few suitors this offseason and is hoping that a team will take a chance on him. I believe that Manny Ramirez and the Toronto Blue Jays would be a perfect match for 10 reasons......
