Since former Red Sox General Manager Dan Duquette made his deal with the devil by signing Manny Ramirez to an 8 year, $160 million contact back in 2000 Red Sox fans have seen it all.   True, he was extremely instrumental in helping the Red Sox win their first World Championship in 86 years back in 2004.  And there can be no denying that he was also a major part of the 2007 World Championship team as well.  But as most Red Sox fans will readily admit this success came at …

Wiki

Manual "Manny" Aristides Ramirez was born May 30, 1972 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Raised a short distance from Yankee Stadium, Ramirez attended George Washington High School in Washington Heights, a neighborhood in New York City. While attending the school, he was named All-City in 1989, 1990 and 1991 and was the New York City Public Schools High School Player of the Year in 1991.

Recruited to join the Majors out of high school, Ramirez, soon proved to be one of the best hitters in league. He played with the Cleveland Indians from 1993-2000 and the Boston Red Sox in 2001 (where he helped the Red Sox end an 86-year losing streak to become World Champions in a four-game World Series sweep against the St. Louis Cardinals in 2004). He was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2008.

Manny is a Major league baseball left fielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He has been well recognized for his dynamic offensive abilities, as a nine-time silver slugger and one of twenty five people to have hit over 500 career home runs. He currently holds the active player record for 20 career grand slams. Ramirez' authorized biography, titled "Becoming Manny: Inside the Life of Baseball's Most Enigmatic Slugger" was released on March 10, 2009.

Among active players in 2008, Ramirez ranked third in RBIs (1,672), fifth in home runs (510), sixth in on-base percentage (.409) and seventh in batting average (.312). Ramirez and his wife, Juliana, have their off-season home in ...
