Manny Ramirez In Talks With Taiwanese Team
Manny Ramirez, who ranks 14th on MLB's all-time home run list, could resume his playing career in Taiwan. The 40-year-old slugger is in talks to play for the EDA Rhinos of the Taiwanese professional league, Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports reports (on Twitter).
Ramirez recently played in the Dominican Winter League and wants to continue his MLB career, agent Barry Praver told Morosi last month. However, MLB teams such as the Indians didn't appear to have interest in Ramirez this offseason.

I'm guessing a bluff by his agent....he's gotta be dying to get back in the MLB. The Indians can reallly use a DH too so it seems like a good fit at first glance. But if Francona doesn't think he's a good fit than I can live with that....he of all people would know.

I don't think Manny really wants to play anywhere but MLB, otherwise he could have played in one of the other winter leagues when MLB wouldn't let him play in the Dominican. I doubt there are any MLB agreements with the young leagues in Colombia, Nicaragua or Panama. I think he just misses all the attention.
