SoB MLB Power Rankings 5-24-10

It’s time for the second installment of the MLB Power Rankings, and it’s a good one. You have the Dodgers and Tigers threatening, and Cincinnati and St. Louis are too close to call. On the other hand, the Yankees are falling farther and farther behind the Rays, and are even losing ground in the Wildcard […]

The Future of Manny Ramirez

Manny Ramirez, of the Los Angeles Dodgers and formerly of the Boston Red Sox, has said that he would like to play 3-4 more years in the major leagues. This would put him around 40 years old by the time he ends his career, which would total about 20 years in Major League Baseball. Unfortunately […]

Dodgers manager Joe Torre told reporters Friday that slugger Manny Ramirez should skip the All-Star Game if voted in.

TGIF: Andre Ethier Needs Manny Ramirez

With recent news that Manny Ramirez has tested positive for a banned substance and will miss 50 games, you may be wondering how this will affect your team. In reality, the Dodgers are still the best team in the West even without Manny due to the pure lack of competition. In the fantasy realm, having […]

Just breaking news out of L.A. that former Red Sox slugger Manny Ramirez has tested positive for drugs and is suspended for 50 games! His agent Scott Boras says it’s not steroids but a prescription from a doctor. ESPN is reporting the substance is a women’s fertility drug. WTF? Here’s the scoop from ESPN.com: …two […]

Papelbon Rips Manny Ramirez, Calls Him “Cancer”

Jonathan Papelbon had some choice words in the April Issue of Esquire Magazine about former Red Sox teammate Manny Ramirez. “It just takes one guy to bring an entire team down, and that’s exactly what was happening,” Papelbon said, according to the magazine. “Once we saw that, we weren’t afraid to get rid of him. […]

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 […]
