07:42 AM ET 04.18 | The name conjures up all manner of mental pictures, but Manny Ramirez Jr. is not Manny Ramirez Sr. He has grown to 6-foot-3, taller and lankier than Manny Sr. but also very much a mirror of his father when he first joined the Cleveland Indians in 1993. He is certain to be selected in the MLB First-Year Player Draft in June. And maybe it is his own baseball life that has given him perspective on his father's. He talks to Manny Sr. regularly, having just spoken to him via phone from Taiwan, where Manny Sr. is trying to revive his broken baseball career. "I think with everything that has happened he has matured," Manny Jr. says about Manny Sr. "It's the reality that people make mistakes."
