It's just "Manny being Manny."
Over Manny Ramirez's 19 year career, this catchphrase embodied who he was, a free spirit that could not be tamed. Like his personality, his bat was also a force that could not be tamed in his prime.
With a .312 lifetime batting average and 555 home runs, Ramirez established himself as one of the greatest and most feared hitters during our time, being selected to the All-Star Game 12 times.
Let's not focus on the controversy surrounding him the past couple years that made him abruptly retire and instead look at the good times, the glory years. Let us focus on the years that made him deadliest and smartest hitter during our time. The fan favorite, the media favorite, Manny Ramirez.
