  1. Retired Slugger Wants to Make a Comeback

    Manny Ramirez, who left major league baseball in 2011 under a cloud of performance-enhancing drugs, says he has learned his lesson and wants back in. Even if he has cleaned up, it’s not clear anyone would want him. He’s old for the league at 42, and was so difficult to manage that the Red Sox tried to get rid of him both before and after his bat carried them to two World Series victories. It looks like he’s following in the footsteps of Michael Jordan, but Ramirez might be closer to Dennis Rodman — more trouble than talent.
