Ok, I am a little late on this topic; however, as we all know, the organization took a look at Manny Ramirez last week during a workout in Florida.
We all know Ramirez’s sordid history in the game and his drug issues. He’s obviously not been an upstanding citizen in the game and frankly has bastardized his profession.
Ramirez spoke to ESPN this week about a possible comeback – despite the fact that he would need to sit out 50 games due to his PED use.
He actually sounded a lot different from what I have seen out of him in the past.
Ramirez sounded contrite, apologetic, and perhaps realized how stupid he’s come off over the years. Who knows if this is an act of desperation, or if he wants to go for an Academy award.
As a fan, I would not want him anywhere on the Baltimore Orioles, or even any of the other 29 franchises. That’s how strongly I feel about him, but if he can hit – the Orioles might want to use him.
Yes, I said it. The Orioles need the offense and a potent bat in the lineup. They have not signed a power bat, and now their pickings are getting slim unless they want to pay Prince Fielder a king’s ransom.
