Manny Ramirez is back fans, this time in Japan with the Kochi Island Fighting Dogs, an independent league team, and as expected he is just Manny being Manny. I am not certain of his complete contract but the details that have been released:
His #99 jersey contains just his first name
He has use of a Mercedes Benz and chauffeur
Practices are optional
He gets his own hotel suite during road games
Who knows how long he will play this out, his last official at-bat was in 2011 and the last time he played any organized baseball was when he was a player-coach for the Iowa Cubs in 2014 but with perks like this I wouldn't complainl.
