Manny fading away

Manny is not being Manny.

The Rangers gave him a shot.

He is not a bad teammate this time around they say.

There is just no reason to call him up it seems, with a drought on his old power numbers he has just become average. He is hitting just .269 (18 for 67) with 3 homers and 10 RBIs in 18 games. He hasn't homered since July 14 and is just batting .237 (9 for 37) in his past 10 games.

Seems the Rangers have not even decided if they will keep him. His minor league deal does not have an out, but the Rangers were never planning to take their time with deciding about what to do with him.

Past his prime it seems.

Too late to make up for lack of numbers by attempting to be a clubhouse guy.

Nobody is buying that Mr. Ramirez.
