Manny Ramirez -- once the king of Mannywood with the Dodgers -- announced Tuesday that he has signed a short-term contract to play baseball in Taiwan.
According to the former baseball superstar, he is "starting a new beginning" by joining the EDA Rhinos.
Or, one might say, he's beginning a new start.
See, we can do that now. We can pick on Ramirez now that he's no longer the flashy, big-time slugger that once made more than $20-million a year at the peak of his career.
He's now a 40-year-old has-been who was suspended twice toward the end of his MLB career for using banned substances and is now reduced to playing for $25,000 a month in Taiwan.
“I don't think about the money and contract,” Ramirez said. “I just think it is a great opportunity for me and the fans.”
