Happy birthday, Barry Manuel

Happy birthday to Barry Manuel, who turns 45 today.

Manuel was the Rangers' 2nd round draft pick in 1987, out of LSU, and has the dubious distinction of probably being the Rangers' second-best 2nd round pick ever, behind only Roger Pavlik. Being a second round pick of the Rangers has been something of a curse.

Manuel appeared in relief in 11 games for the Rangers in 1991 and 1992, and ended up having one solid season in the majors, with the Expos in 1996.
