One of the most exciting players in the sport turns 38 years old today.
And even while he is slowed down by nagging injuries, Manny Ramirez stands alone as baseball’s biggest personality and one of it’s best players. I cannot recall a time in this decade that Manny’s name has not been a headline. He is an extremely talented player with a persona to match.
We all know that Manny can hit the ball as well as any of today’s superstars. We also know that his dedication to the sport and his teammates has been in question for years. But, we cannot argue that as a single player in a team game, he makes his team perform to a higher level when he is around, and his teammates excel when he is on the roster.
For Manny’s 38th birthday, I would love to see him get a fresh start for the second half of this 2010 season. Watch out, because the Dodgers are coming and Manny will be the one driving the train!!!
Happy Birthday Man-Ram!!!
