Why the Braves should sign Manny

Sound crazy?  I thought so myself...

But here is the problem.  The Braves can't get pitching.  Their best bet right now is to get Kawakami to establish a presence in Japan.  Bud Derek Lowe, seriously?  Lets be honest, he is a workhorse and a very good pitcher, but he won't be an ace for the next 4 years. 

The Braves were mediocre everywhere last season.  Hitting and pitching.  The Braves need a good right handed bat, a cleanup hitter that can protect Chipper.  Can you name a better right handed bat than Manny Ramirez?  It isn't like he would be a long-term guy, 3 years tops.  Call me crazy (Smoltz left, so you may be right), but if you want to put people in the seats and have a fun season, Manny might just be the best option out there.
