Manny Ramirez: Food for thought

Mike, one of my readers, left this comment on an earlier post regarding Manny Ramirez:

Take a look at baseball-reference.com and see the most similar players by age (33) for Manny. Thome, Mays, Robby, Thome ... All of them began there decline after age 33. The only one who didn't was Barry - and we all know that story.

It was such a good idea, I thought I'd give it a shot. Let's look at what some of these guys did after age 33, with age and injuries taking their toll. I'm going to let the bare numbers speak for themselves.
