Manny Ramirez, LF
Since a slow start, Manny Ramirez has done exactly what he was expected to do this season: hit for power and average in the middle of the lineup. At the break, he is hitting .306 with 24 home runs. A summer without a Ramirez trade demand, however, is something that is not expected. The All-Star (whether he plays or not) slugger's agent Greg Genske said, "Manny is staying in Boston for the rest of his career."
