Manny Ramirez will be a free agent after the season. The Yankees should sign him just to keep him from killing them.
Manny Being Manny is an insane 52 of 110 (.473) against the Yankees since the start of the 2006 season with 12 homers and 35 RBI in 32 games. He has 53 homers and 153 RBI against the Yankees in his career.
I asked Mike Mussina last week what the Yankees have done to try and stop this. “Everything,” he said. “Nothing works.”
Check out Manny’s career splits page at Baseball-Reference.com:
He’s .320/.408/.615 in 193 career games against the Yankees and .319/.397/.597 at Yankee Stadium. A .408 career OPB against one team? That is not a small sample size, either.
Is it wrong that I laughed at this from The Onion? Yes, but it really is funny.
Derek Jeter sat out six games with that quad injury. The three games since: 7 for 13, 3 runs, 5 RBI, 0 strikeouts.
Back later with the lineups.
