This is the second player I've completed of The Oceans, my underwater themed Baseball team - the first is Santana Squid, the Ace Pitcher for the Team.
Manny is one incredibly tough guy, and he doesn't accept anything less than his player's best. They want to stay on his good side, because his stings pack a serious wallop and he's not shy about letting failures feel the rough side of his tongue, and his tentacles. Because of his gelatinous body and is incredibly nasty tentacles, no one could figure out how to get the green uniform on to Manny, but he didn't let that stopped him, he just intimidated a whole lot of photosynthetic algae in to sticking to his tentacles, and he excreted the black pin stripes necessary to complete the look.
Don't let his doe eyes fool you! The other players live in terror of one of his infamous set downs, and he puts Lou Pinella to shame, he fights with the umpires so often! He's been thrown out of games more often than any manager in the history of the Undersea League.
He wears the number 42, because for him - and under his rule, for his players - the Oceans are the Life, the Universe, and Everything.
In the end, though, everyone puts up with him - and many even love him - because all he really wants is for the Oceans to win. He's a tough, mean, confrontational guy, but his heart is in the right place - or at least it would be, if he had a circulatory system.
