Here it is ladies and gentlemen: The Grand Finale!
(You’ll see alot more of these later)
For this first one, you might have just watch and astonish as here is… Ryan Braun!!!
This is a man of many names and titles, what what I’d like to call him is
There are alot of “Rams” in baseball but this is the best of all. Now presenting, the one and only, Han-Ram!!
I think the time is “Wright” for this one. So now welcoming… David Wright!!!
Now announcing, the king of baseball… Albert Pujols!!!
He has a great attitude, deals with the team’s controversy, and is a great clutch hitter. Here is the Yankee Captain himself, Derek Jeter!!!
Up next is a true Yankee legend that is a definite Hall of Famers and our future save leader…Mariano Rivera!
Now… the moment you’ve all been waiting for… ny number 1 player… is……
That’s the end of the show for now. Enjoy the fireworks!
Till next time!
I promised you a list didn’t I? We even pinky sweared.(Sort of…)
So here it is. The part 2!
Let the show begin!!!
At number 10 is “The Natural”. He crushes balls out of the park and is an inspiration to many. Josh….Hamilton!!!
Next at Number 9 is a player that is very well known. He could be the ace of this decade and may be a Hall of Famer one day… Johan “the Zohan” Santana!
Don’t mess with him.

My game plan:
I want to get a quality 3B in the 1st round since my keeper is Ryan Braun and I am picking last then with the 1st pick of the 2nd round I want to get a 2B.
What I had in mind was:
Though what I got was…
Why not end this post with a little laughter huh?

Talk about a big game pitcher huh? 2 years ago, he won 12 games, last year he won 14 games, this year he will probably win 16 games. Who am I talking about you ask? No one other than this guy right here.
James Shields. He is the Rays Opening Day Starter as officially declared by Joe Maddon last week. It looks like Kaz isn’t our ace anymore after all. So what will the rotation look like then? Well here it is…
Now don’t get me wrong, Jackson was and still is a good player. The problem is that there was no room for him in Tampa Bay’s rotation. Right now there are still about 5 guys vying for that rotation spot, besides Price.
(That AL Championship shirt will probably be the last one will ever wear in his career.)
2. We got Matt Joyce.
Matt Joyce is a great player and a stellar addition to the Rats team. I think the Rays should have let Gabe Gross go after this because they have Gross, Joyce, Perez, and Ruggiano all going for that one spot. The Rays also could have then used Perez and Joyce in a platoon for that spot. The best part about him is that we have him for 5 more years at an affordable price.
We should all just Rejoice with Joyce.
3. We opened up a spot for our Future Ace
Do I need to say any more?
I’m going to say a classic that I found to finish up this post.
2007 Draft Pick-$1
Rookie Contract-14 million
Making it happen-
This is the first entry of a 2 part series titled Manoman’s Top 20
I was thinking about doing something like:
The Top Awesome Players That Are Now Playing Today
My Grand Slam Crew of Active Baseball Players
I was even thinking of doing something like…
The 20 Most Spectacular Men That Are Playing the Game of Baseball Today
(thankfully I didn’t go there)
So with that, let’s get on with the list!!!
20. Adrian Gonzalez 1B
Always flying under the radar and puts up great numbers at the massive Petco Park.
19.Dustin Pedroia 2B
The “Little Man” had great numbers in 2008 and he won the MVP Award. Even though he is a Red Sox, I like him because he shows so much determination and dediication to the game of baseball.
18. Nick Markakis RF
He is a consistent threat at the plate and makes great plays in the outfield.
17. Grady Sizemore CF
Grady is a great young hitter with 40-40 potential and he is very exciting to watch on the field.
16. David Price SP
David is an amazing young pitcher who is going to be the next Johan Santana. He has electric stuff and is the future ace of the Rays.
15. Jorge Posada C
He is a homegrown Yankee who has played with the club for more than 10 years now. He also provides great leadership and order to the pitching staff and is cool to watch in the game.
14. Ichiro Suzuki RF
I like how Ichiro plays the game and he is practically a guarantee to get on base every time he is at bat. He has gold glove caliber fielding and he is a steals machine.
13. CC Sabathia SP
CC is now in N.Y.C. and with him comes at least 15 victories and a great attitude. I feel like he is one of my “home boys”.

12. Mark Teixeira 1B
Mark is an up-beat kind of guy that brings his best to the field every game and always has a smile on his face.
