SI.com is reporting that the Tampa Bay Rays have agreed to contracts with f0rmer Red Sox Manny Ramirez and Johnny Damon. According to Sports Illustrated, the deals are pending physicals and are one-year deals. Damon’s deal would be worth $5.25 million, plus a potential $750,000 in bonus money based on attendance, while Ramirez will be making $2 million flat.

It’s hard to forget that both players were  integral members of the infamous “Idiots” who won the World Series for the Red Sox in 2004. With his trademark locks and mangy beard, Damon was a quirky counterpart to Ramirez with his flowing dreadlocks and zany personality. The 37-year-old Damon appeared in 145 games with Detroit in 2010, hitting .271 with eight homers and 11 stolen bases, totaling a .355 on-base percentage. Ramirez, 38, appeared in a combined 90 games with both the Dodgers and White Sox in ’10, hitting .298 with nine home runs and he finished with an OPS of .870.
