Manny Ramirez is upon looked upon as a goof ball, Manny being Manny is the popular phrase use to show his mannerisms. Manny Ramirez hit his 500th homerun on Saturday May 31st to become the 24th hitter in major league history to do so. The ensuing only question is can Manny get into the Hall of Fame and be remembered as a player or simply as a good player who is a comedy act. Granted Manny has done some crazy things over the years as he patrolled Fenway's left field. The home of great players like Ted Williams And Carl Yazstremski. Manny has ducked into the Green Monster, Fenway Park's signiture 33 foot tall wall, only to take a bathroom break during the game. Regardless of his reputation Manny is a first ballot Hall of Famer, he should be known as one one the greatest hitters of all time not a sideshow.
