Most Unusual Contract

Remember Manny Ramirez? Of course you do. He was the great slugger for the Red Sox and Indians (among other teams) who was eventually suspended for PED use...multiple times. The Cubs used him as a hitting instructor the last few years.

Well, Manny is playing again at the age of 44. Now he is in Japan. To say he has signed an unusual contract is to understate the case. Check out these odd contract provisions. They include:

A Mercedes car and a driver

Optional practices

His own hotel suite during road trips

Unlimited sushi all season long

Or as people have been saying since Manny arrived in baseball. It's just Manny being Manny.
