The Chicago White Sox have claimed Manny Ramirez off waivers. Reports indicate Manny will join the team on tuesday. This makes it seem like dumping him was an even better move in hindsight because he washed out of LA after half a season of great success in ’08, an ’09 season limited by a 50 game suspensions for Performance Enhancing Drugs, and a third season plagued by injuries in 2010.
The timing of this move is pretty interesting for RED Sox fans as well… Chicago comes to Boston for a 3 game series starting next Friday, September 3. So, Manny will be playing for the Sox in Fenway next weekend! But this time, he’ll be wearing black. Who’d have thunk it?
