I laughed when I found out that TB had signed Manny Ramirez.  But after watching this footage on ESPN.com (http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=6118902&categoryid=2521705), I'm not quite ready to count him out yet. 

For a soon-to-be 39 year old man, I think it can only help that he's losing weight and getting in better shape.  Of course, since he'll be off whateve the hell he was on previously, losing weight only makes sense.  Another observation is that I'm shocked that it's taken this long for a trainer to identify that Manny has poor running mechanics, which is almost certainly contributing to his injury woes. 

Taking everything into consideration, I think Manny might be ok this year--especially in the AL, where he can spend the bulk of his time DH'ing.  Bottom line is that if Manny can stay disciplined and stay in shape--and that's a big IF--I think he could put up respectable numbers.  If given 500 AB's, 20 HR's, 85 RBI's, .275 wouldn't surprise me.  If he gets into his bad habits again--well, I think there's really no floor for him, and his career will likely be over.  I'll give him the benefit of the doubt however and assume he's grown up a bit. 

What do you think?

Average overall but I bet he catches fire for 6 weeks and makes everyone think he's back.

He was spectacularly lazy in the outfield last season, so maybe DH will make it better for him. But he's done, anyway.
