Bonafides From 2002-2012: 2x World Series Champion, 2004 World Series MVP, 7x All-Star
Steroid suspension and the assault of an elderly traveling secretary notwithstanding, Man-Ram's had one hell of a decade. Not only did Ramirez hit his 500th home run and collect some $176 million in salary, but he also etched himself forever in Red Sox lore by helping to snap 86-year long championship drought, winning the World Series MVP in 2004. His trade to Los Angeles late in the '08 season instantly made the Blue a contender. And his .520 average, 4 home runs, and 11 RBIs in the playoffs had the Dodgers three wins away from the World Series. From C-Town to Bean-Town with a stint in Mannywood, Ramirez has torched the Complex era.
