Happy Birthday Manny Lee

It is Manny Lee’s 52nd birthday. Yeah, I’ve heard he didn’t like the name ‘Manny’, but I wouldn’t know who Manuel Lee was, so I’m sticking with the name I know. Manny was an infielder for the Blue Jays for 8 seasons. He didn’t have much of a bat, he hit .254/.304/.323 in 753 games as a Blue Jay. Lee was signed as a free agent out of the Dominican Republic, by the Mets, back in 1982. He and a couple of others were traded to the Astros for Ray Knight. Knight would go on to be a big part of the Mets’ 1986 World Series winning team. We picked him up in the 1984 Rule 5 draft....
