Uncle Rico Loves Him Some Manny Being Manny

One of the fringe benefits of owning Manny Ramirez on your fantasy baseball squad is the amusement received from his player news and notes - sent weekly from your respective fantasy service. Earlier this week, the following note came across the YAHOO! SPORTS fantasy baseball wire:

LF Manny Ramirez caused a stir last week when he opened up to several media outlets about his newly adopted yoga and meditation habits as well as his intense interest in a book titled “The Secret.” Many of Ramirez’s mind-expanding activities have come at the urging of his Uncle Rico, an avuncular figure who has been a near-constant in the left fielder’s life over the last few years.

Manny Ramirez is a quality draft pick for any fantasy baseball manager because he’s averaged 30 HR, 100 RBI, and a .400 OBP for the last 10 seasons. But on any given day, Manny could oversleep, urinate in the corner of the dugout, go 4-5, or wake up on a Fiji island covered in puke.

It’s all delivered via fantasy notes, and it’s all very real in the world of Manny.

Uncle Rico. Loves steak, Dodge vans, high school football, girls under 16, and now…yoga with Manny Ramirez. You gotta love Uncle Rico.
