Can Manny Ramirez still be productive

With the reports today coming from Dallas News (Link) that  the Rangers have signed Manny Ramirez to a minor league deal and will go to the Rangers in a couple days. Earlier this season he played for a Taiwan league team and did pretty well hitting .352 with 8 homers and 43 RBIs. But the question is will that translate back to America. Manny is well known for being a great power hitter but also has been suspended twice for steroid use.

Honestly I doubt Manny will have that success translate over to the big leagues he is 41 years old and was awful in 2011 before being suspended and "retiring". He went 1-17 with Tampa Bay with no homers and 1 RBI. But if he does well it will be fun to watch. If he struggles it will mean the end. I wish Manny good luck as he goes to Texas and try to recover his career.

For now I leave you highlights of his big league career when he was bopping a boat-load of homers
