Should the Rays sign Manny Ramirez as a DH?

When you see a hitter hit long balls year after year after year, you tend to evaluate the hitter's value based only on his power numbers.

Based on Manny's injury-riddled 2010 season with only nine home runs and 42 RBI, many have wondered if he has anything left in the tank. I think people may have overlooked his .298 batting average, which, to me, shows that he may not have his pop anymore, but he is still a very smart hitter and if he is placed in the proper position in the lineup as a DH, he will get on base and drive in runners.

The Tampa Bay Rays will need another star to team with Evan Longoria in an effort to spike up the ticket sales. My guess is that he'll come cheap and will be very productive for the Rays, a team who despite losing a lot of players still has one of the best rotations intact.

Here's hoping Rays fans.
