Ramirez has been pursued by the Chiba Lotte Marines of Japan’s NBP.
Until the next gambling scandal.....
How did he do over there, anyway?
The price of Manny Rhino dolls just went through the roof, and Manny has a trunkful of them.
Manny Ramirez decided to end his contract in the Taiwan professional baseball league one week before its expiration date, and although the quirky outfielder denied having an offer to play in Japan or the United States, he says he's looking forward to getting one.
"I don't have other offers, but I'm not retiring. I love this game too much as to give it up when I can still play," Ramirez told ESPNdeportes.com via phone from Taiwan. "Dominicans adore playing baseball. Why would I stop playing if I have the conditions to do so?"
"My contract [in Taiwan] ends on June 25, but I decided to finish it a week early to spend time with my family in Taiwan and then wait for an offer from Japan or the United States," Ramirez said. "Thank the Lord, doors will stay open. The general manager offered me to play or be batting coach. I'm leaving on good terms. I have a plane ticket to return to the U.S. on Monday."
