The Texas Rangers Release Manny Ramirez as His Career May Be Over

The Manny Ramirez experiment in Texas has finally come to an end.  The Texas Rangers decided to release the 41 year old outfielder from their Triple A Round Rock squad on Tuesday so they could explore some other options.  Ramirez, a 12 time all star, was batting just .259 with three home runs and 13 RBI’s in 30 games at the Triple A level.  Ranger’s general manager Jon Daniels had this to say, “based on our evaluation, there was not a spot on the club for Manny at this time.”

With this recent cut the career of this one time coveted long ball hitter might be over.  Ramirez was suspended for 50 games in 2009 while with the Los Angeles Dodgers after testing positive for a banned drug.  With that and his recent track record, we may never have another “Manny being Manny” moment that so many have grown to either love or hate.
