Former Red Sox slugger Manny Ramirez isn't finished with baseball just yet, but baseball may have had enough of Manny being Manny.

The 41-year-old Ramirez hasn't played in the majors since he failed his second PED test and retired rather than face a 100 game suspension.

Ramirez said Thursday on "Grandes en los Deportes" on ESPN Radio in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic that he still wants to play,

"My qualities are still there, and I just need an opportunity to continue showing that the 'Super Manny' can help a team.

"For now, I have no team interested, but I'm still working. Maybe I don't have anything this week, but who knows? Maybe next week I could get a call.

"If it is God's will, I could play in MLB this season. I just need a team to open the doors. I can help in the field and in the clubhouse for the younger guys."

Ramirez played 49 games in Taiwan last season hitting .352 with eight homers and 43 RBI in 49 games before signing a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers. The Rangers released him after 30 games.

The former Red Sox World Series MVP in 2004 has 555 career home runs in 19 seasons.

It's unlikely Manny gets to be Manny in the majors again, but we sure wish he would just for more moments like these:
