Garnering zero interest from any of the 30 Major League Baseball franchises, dimwitted juicehead Manny Ramirez has reportedly agreed to sign with the iconic EDA Rhinos of the Chinese Professional Baseball League in Taiwan.
Ramirez, a nine-time Silver Slugger Award winner, who amassed 555 homers, 2,574 hits and 1,831 RBI in 18 seasons, failed to impress scouts competing in the Dominican Winter League.
The 40-year-old Ramirez, who was charged with domestic battery in September 2011 and inked a $500,000 minor league deal with Oakland in February 2012, was released by the Athletics shortly after his 50-game suspension for violating league’s drug policy ended on May 30.
Ramirez, a 12-time All-Star with a 24th chromosome, hasn’t performed in the majors since April 2011 and has been employed by six organizations since debuting as a professional with the Cleveland Indians on September 2, 1993.
The 6-foot, 225 pound Dominican-American, raised in the Washington Heights section of the New York City borough of Manhattan, is a diva who, when acting like a jackass, is often given a pass under the moronic pretense of “Manny Being Manny.”
Ramirez, the 2004 World Series MVP, is one of the primary mugs of the Steroid Era and the game is a tad cleaner now that he’s been blackballed domestically by baseball’s suits.
Although still unofficial, when the charlatan formally becomes an employee of the EDA Rhinos, Manny Ramirez will somehow manage to get deported from East Asia prior to Memorial Day.by
