Manny's back, will be playing in Taiwan
Known for his bat and his offbeat behavior, Manny Ramirez had failed to elicit interest from U.S. teams.

AOHSIUNG, Taiwan - Manny Ramirez said Tuesday he is "starting a new beginning" after signing a short-term contract to play with the EDA Rhinos in Taiwan's professional baseball league.

Ramirez, 40, will earn $25,000 a month during the March-November season.

Ramirez said he felt "blessed" about the opportunity to play in Taiwan, where he will earn a fraction of the $20 million-plus he earned at his peak.

In his major league career, he has 555 home runs and a .312 batting average.
