Manny Being Manny, Baked

ramirez

Baseball Think Factory links to an article about Manny Ramirez hitting a third home run in extra innings to propel the Rhinos to victory over in Taiwan. Apparently he’s batting .322/.365/.525 and shattering attendance records. Or, you can just let Google translate the linked article from Chinese:

Manny baked! Or a playoff the victory run homer… broken the Brother Elephants body in the playoff undefeated this year…. The ninth inning Italian rhino Chowk play… Zhang Minyan first play on the second base side of the left field line knocked from the hands of Zack playing counterattack horn blowing like a team, this half board as the team knocked from the hands of Zack three hits plus a sacrifice fly attack….

[F]astball pitcher Mi Jiya repression, is not that offensive, coupled with the pitcher’s wild pitch of the fifth inning… knock out the guerrilla zones of strong ground ball is now heading through the formation of hits…. The game leap into eleven thousand capacity audience… Hsinchu reach full field is the second time in the history of the stadium on Tuesday, the first occurred in October 11, 1994, played against the team Brother Elephants and Uni-President Lions.

In other Manny Ramirez news, his son is hoping to be drafted this year, and says Manny has found religion:

“He’s gotten really serious about it [religion]. It started after he got the 50-game [suspension] in Los Angeles. People change as time goes on. He has put his faith into God. I think he was like that before, but he lost his way traveling in baseball,” Manny Jr. said.

Or, if we translate that into Chinese and then back into English:

“…he has put his faith into God and I think he had so, but he lost his way with baseball,” Little Manny said.

I thought that last translation would be more fun. Damn you for being good at translating, Google Translate!

That sign doesn’t even look like ManRam… perhaps they have created a Robot ManRam in Japan.
