Worth Mentioning

With all the negativity surrounding baseball these days, especially if one if a San Francisco Giants fan, I'm struggling to maintain my investment. One strategy is to pay attention to things I've neglected. Today's object of inquiry is Manny Ramirez, who has been eclipsed in the media by David Ortiz's rise to fame. I imagine that someone will claim that Ramirez wasn't really born in 1972. But still, the fact that he might be only 34 with 469 home runs, a lifetime on-base percentage of .411 and a lifetime slugging percentage of .601 is startlingly impressive. He's going to the Hall of Fame, folks.
