Manny Ramirez gave a few quotes last night after the Dodgers were eliminated:
"I just want to go home and spend some time with my family. I want to see who is the highest bidder. Gas is up and so am I."
Manny on whether he wants to be in L.A.: "We’ll see." Manny asked what he’s worth: "I guess you got to talk to my agent now. I’m a five-tool player. That’s me now." Hmmm…even Boras can’t convince anyone Manny brings speed or defense to the table.
On the high end, a six-year, $150MM deal has been suggested for Ramirez. T.J. Simers suspects owner Frank McCourt would prefer to make a valiant effort and finish second in the bidding. Buster Olney believes the Dodgers are better suited signing C.C. Sabathia.
