Manny Talks About a Return to Taiwan Baseball

Manny Ramirez would like to return to baseball in the CPBL. The problem is, all the foreign roster spots are filled. These foreign roster spots are filled with pitchers, who are considered a more valuable commodity than position players. Last year Taiwan brought in some foreign position players but that was met with disappointment and they were quickly released to strengthen the pitching staff.

Manny would like to return as a player manager. When he played in Taiwan in 2013 he was 41 years old. Now he is 48. As a 41 year old he hit .352 with 8 homeruns and 43 RBIs in 49 games. Of course, production may not be an issue if he can drive up attendance, television ratings and attention to the CPBL.

According to the interview in the Taiwan Times he starts his day at 6 AM by reading the bible and then watching one hour of Taiwan baseball. The team he played for in 2013 was the EDA Rhinos. They are now the Fubon Guardians. After six years they probably no longer have the player rights to Manny.
