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?

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 […]

How the Red Sox Handled Manny Ramirez

MLB to Investigate Final Days of Manny Ramirez Era

Manny Ramirez is destroying the ball since joining the L.A. Dodgers, and since having his final two option years dropped. He’s hitting .565 (13-23) with four HRs and nine RBI in six games.
