First, Manny said he will play in the Dominican winter baseball league. Then he was jailed for domestic disturbance in Florida. Then Manny Ramirez reiterated the fact that he plans to play in the Dominican Winter Baseball League (LIDOM) for the 2011 season. And finally, MLB says that he cannot play in the LIDOM because he still has an MLB suspension to serve and LIDOM is affiliated with MLB, so he must serve that 50 game suspension before he can play in LIDOM.
So, as always, Manny Ramirez is in the news, even if he is not playing. And when Manny speaks, the Dominican Baseball Guy listens. The latest is that Manny Ramirez praises the Angels for signing Albert Pujols. O really? Thanks Manny for chiming in. Here is the quote from ESPNDeportesLosAngeles.com:
"He deserves that contract; he is the best slugger in history. The numbers speak for themselves," Ramirez said during an interview with ESPNDeportesLosAngeles.com.
