Han Solo vs. Manny Ramirez


bitchin' sidekick Chewbacca Angel Berroa
sweet ride Millennium Falcon Chrysler 300M SRT8 w/6.1-liter hemi
example of poor business acumen dropped shipments at the first sign of an Imperial cruiser could not sell grill on eBay
power play shooting Greedo forcing trade from Boston
mercenary quote "I expect to be well paid. I'm in it for the money." "I want to see who is the highest bidder."
what they're saying about him "He's got to follow his own path. No one can choose it for him." "It's just Manny being Manny."
when he showed up to save the day just as Darth Vader had Luke in his sights (last reel of movie) August 1, 2008 (2/3rds through season)
how he saved the day took out Vader's wingmen .396/.489/.743 regular season, .520/.667/1.080 post-season
reward for late heroics medal, princess MVP consideration, free agency
triumphant return The Empire Strikes Back

Not even Manny can defeat Solo. Not even if Manny gets a MVP and a World Series MVP with the Dodgers...i mean he drives the Millenium Falcon, dates Leia, survives freezing, his kids brought balance to the Force and looks like Harrison Ford/Indiana Jones, how much more you can ask for one guy?
