07:07 AM ET 06.20 | Manny Ramirez wants back in. [Ramirez] batted .352 this season with eight home runs and 43 RBI for the EDA Rhinos of the Chinese Professional Baseball League. The Rhinos -- based in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan -- released Ramirez after he fulfilled a contractual commitment to play for them through June 15, when the first half of their season ended. "The reason he decided not to return for the second half was to free himself to be available to play in the United States," Barry Praver, Ramirez's agent, told FOXSports.com Wednesday. "This whole thing with Manny in Taiwan was a phenomenon. He invigorated the league. Attendance went through the roof. It was a very positive experience for both sides. Manny was so invigorated by his play there that he wants to return to the majors."

Doesn't he have like a 1,000 game suspension to serve first?

Far out, Manny, but please stay in the far east.

I wish he hadn't pushed that old-timer.

He used to be my favorite player.

That really was the straw that broke the camel's back. No excuse for that behavior ... Manny being Manny just didn't cut it any more.

Wanting to return to MLB and having some team want you are two different things.

But I've, I've changed my ways
