Manny Looking For Five Years, $85 Million?

From Tracy Ringolsby of the Rocky Mountain News:

Agent Scott Boras has let it be known through his media outlets that the expectation is for at least five years and $85 million in a deal for Manny Ramirez.

Back on deadline day, Peter Gammons suggested Manny was seeking four years and $100MM.  So it seems that Ramirez’s contract may be $17-25MM annually for four or five years (he will be 37 in May).  Personally I think he’s more likely to get offers in the three year/$65MM range, though one team will bite the bullet and do four years.  Your thoughts?

Ringolsby goes on to say that the Dodgers don’t see Manny as a long-term fit given the five-year demand.
