Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez To the Rays?

If you follow Major League Baseball at all, then you have already heard that Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez are going to Tampa. I for one, have never really liked Manny Ramirez. I feel that he is too showy, and doesn’t give it his all in every game. I do however like Johnny Damon. I have always thought of Damon as a nice guy, and like how he plays.

Considering that both Damon and Ramirez used to be teammates on the Redsox:

….it will be interesting to see how they interact with each other. Will it be a happy reunion, or not?

Reports say that Damon will earn 5.25 million, while Ramirez will earn just 2 million. They will both however, combine to bring attendance levels up. What do you think? Will Damon and Ramirez help or hurt the Rays? Will they give the team a boost to make it all the way to the World Series?

Let me know what you think……

UPDATE

Well, the whole Ramirez thing didn’t go as planned…….

Explanation Of Me (First Entry)

Just in case the URL didn’t give it away, I am unbiased when it comes to Major League Baseball teams. I root for teams with the players I like, but have no team in particular that I root for the most. I feel that even the most avid fans of teams have players on their favorite team that they don’t like. That’s why I choose to root for players individually and not entire teams. (Does that make sense?)

Please leave a comment if you feel the same as me. If you wish, you can also leave a comment of your favorite team, and why you enjoy that team more than the other 29 teams.

I have no amazing story such as snagging 100 GAME home runs or anything like that. As a matter of fact; I have never even snagged one baseball. I’m just your average baseball fan. Who enjoys cheering on certain players rather than a team.
