Manny Being Texas: Ramirez Signed By Rangers

Think of all the ticked off Rhino fans this morning. Their only superstar—Manny Ramirez—has abandoned Kaohsiung, Taiwan for the bright lights of Arlington, Texas. The EDA Rhinos of the Chinese Professional Baseball League have lost the guy who hit .352/.422/.555 with eight home runs for their beloved team this year. In case you missed it, the Texas Rangers signed Manny to a minor league deal yesterday and he will report to AAA Round Rock to take yet another step on his Mannycal Mystery Tour. He will likely DH if he makes The Show, allowing Lance Berkman (when he's healthy) to play first. Just so you know, the Rangers have already made their only trip to Fenway for 2013, so our only chance to see Manny in the Hub is in the playoffs.
