Even though he's currently playing baseball in Taiwan, it looks like Manny Ramirez still has those hilarious moments that Red Sox fans grew to love. On Friday, during one of his games for the EDA Rhinos, Manny had another one of his trademark 'Manny being Manny' episodes.

With Ramirez on first, a ground ball was hit at the first baseman and Ramirez attempted to break up the possible double-play by sliding into second as the second baseman was covering the bag. Unfortunately, Manny started his slide about 12 feet from the bag and his momentum still left him a good five feet short. He was eventually tagged out.

Thanks to a wide throw from first, the second baseman came off the bag and could only tag out Ramirez for what turned out to be a fielder's choice . . .

Chalk up another win for "Manny being Manny."
