Dodgers Finally Sign Manny Ramirez

The Los Angeles Dodgers finally signed free agent slugger Manny Ramirez, agreeing to a two-year, $45 million deal. Manny will earn $25 million in the first year, and will have the opportunity to opt out of his contract in the 2009-10 offseason. Manny and agent Scott Boras had sought a four-year, $100 million deal all […]

Ramirez, Boras Turn Down Dodgers Offer

I’m not really sure at all what Manny Ramirez or agent Scott Boras are thinking. The Dodgers offered Manny a chance to be $25 million player for one season, and then re-enter free agency next year when the economy is in better shape. Plausible right? Why should the Dodgers offer more? No team has publicly […]

Dodgers Offer $25 Million to Manny Ramirez

Still unsigned in the first week of February, Manny Ramirez is running out of options. His agent, Scott Boras, is consistently seeking a 4-6 year deal for $25-30 million per year, but is having trouble finding a buyer due to the state of the economy. The Dodgers Monday night made it clear they want Ramirez […]

Mets Not Interested in Manny Ramirez

Will anyone sign Manny? He’s perhaps one of the Top 5 hitters in all of Major League Baseball, but here in late January, Manny is unsigned and does not have a clear destination. The Mets became the latest team to shy away from Ramirez, who was Ruthian last season after his trade to the Dodgers. […]

Where Will Manny Ramirez Sign?

One of the great things about this offseason is that everything is developing so slowly that you can really get a good chance to speculate on the destinations of players. In this case we’re going to be looking at Manny Ramirez, the very polarizing player, with the agent who sometimes puts out absurd demands for […]

Red Sox Farm Friday: Lars Anderson

Lars Anderson is the reason Mark Teixeira won’t be coming to Boston. Now that I have your attention, I’m not trying to say the Red Sox won’t pursue Teixeira, but doing so creates more problems than it solves. When you have a potential 30-HR bat like Anderson in the minors, its just smart not to […]

Tim McCarver: Manny’s Actions in Boston Were “Despicable”

I know Tim McCarver isn’t the most reliable source. He once said during a FOX broadcast of the 2004 ALCS that Brandon Arroyo AND Pedro Martinez would start in Game 2 of that series. Yes, there are many things wrong with that statement…but moving on, McCarver said Wednesday that Manny Ramirez’s final months in Boston […]

Manny Homers Again, Dodgers Take 2-0 Lead

It seems as if Manny Ramirez is trying to prove something in the 2008 NLDS, after hitting his second home run in as many games to help the Dodgers take a commanding 2-0 series lead. The Dodgers were helped by a home run from Ramirez, a three-run double from Russell Martin, and a shaky defense […]

Manny Ramirez Trade a Wash in Yankees’ Eyes

Yes, I’m about two weeks behind the time on this one. You might as well poke fun at me now before I get to the meat of my argument. However, the Manny Ramirez-Jason Bay trade is not the Red Sox downgrading at left field, rather them cutting an enigmatic persona they’ve tried to get rid […]

TGIF: Time for a Second Chance

As the baseball season winds down, several of us are on the lookout for a spark to our offense or our pitching staff. Odds are the trade deadlines in your leagues are coming to a close and the free agent pool is shallower than the shallow end of a swimming pool (wow, that one really┬ásucked). […]

Manny Ramirez Traded

OF Manny Ramirez was reportedly traded to the Dodgers right at the trade deadline, with Jason Bay coming to the Red Sox as part of the deal. The $20 million option for 2009 for Ramirez has been officially dropped and apparently the Red Sox will pay the rest of Manny’s contract this season. Nick Cafardo […]

Sources: Mets Contact Sox About Manny Ramirez

According to the Star-Ledger, officials from both the Mets and Red Sox have confirmed that trade talks about Manny Ramirez have taken place between the two teams. The Red Sox suspect that GM Omar Minaya wants Ramirez more than Mets ownership does. Regardless, the Mets are reluctant to part with top-prospect talent in exchange for […]

Manny Ready to Leave, Four Teams Interested

Could Manny Ramirez really be traded before the July 31 trading deadline? Manny appears ready to leave. “If the Red Sox are a better team without Manny Ramirez, they should trade me; I will not object. I don’t have any preferences. I could choose a team that offers me the best conditions or one in […]
