Should the Reds claim Manny Ramirez? We say we need a left fielder with a power bat.
One of the biggest names in baseball is now available and he can still hit. His 2010 OPS is .920: he’s battng .313 with 8 homers and 40 rbi, a .407 OBP, and a .513 slugging percentage. From what I can tell on baseball-reference.com, he will be a free agent in 2011, and according to MLB Trade Rumors, his 2010 contract may not hard to absorb.
You want postseason experience? Ramirez has played 111 postseason games (that’s 111), with a .285 batting average and 29 home runs and 78 rbi (.937 OPS). How much would it take for us to get him? What would the Dodgers require or need?
