    Things must be getting dark in the heart of Texas.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Or they want to add a high upside hitter for nearly no cost.

    It is being reported that cutting his hair and wearing his uniform correctly was part of the discussion. Good to know.

    What does Tejas have to lose ? Bet ManRam will miss his $ 16,000 a month apartment.

    I'd be shocked if he hit well enough to make the big club, but I've been shocked before.

    Seriously, I'm curious.

    What is the upside of this 41 year old who hasn't had regular playing time in the majors
    since 2010 (320 PA)?

    Remember when the Rangers had Sammy Sosa in 2007? That's what this reminds me of.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Sosa had a good year with the Rangers, but it just felt like he didn't fit in the game anymore and he didn't get anymore job offers after it. I think the same happens to Manny, assuming he even reaches the majors (something he failed to do with A's last year).

    If he jumps through all of the hoops to make the big club, I bet he hits less than .225 this year with single-digit HR.

    Sports Illustrated:
    Ramirez's last major league appearance was with Tampa Bay in 2011. He was suspended for 50 games in 2009 while with the Dodgers after testing positive for a banned drug. He retired in April 2011 instead of serving a 100-game ban for a second positive test, but later agreed to a reduced 50-game suspension and played in the minors for Oakland in 2012.

    What is the point of handing out a suspension for 100 games if you are just take 50 games off of it? Makes no sense to me. Not sure if he served it while in the minors.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
