Colletti Frustrated With Manny Situation

9:44pm: Jayson Stark says Boras requested a meeting with the Dodgers for Tuesday, presumably to discuss Manny.  However, Danny Knobler suggests negotiations for Manny will be handled by Frank McCourt.

3:34pm: Dodgers GM Ned Colletti seems frustrated with the Manny Ramirez situation, based on quotes obtained by ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick:

"I just find it curious.  We made an offer and never heard back. We made an arbitration offer and never heard back. Maybe we have to look into the communications we’re using."

It seems that Scott Boras didn’t seriously consider accepting either offer, given the complete lack of communication.  Colletti will continue trying to fill the team’s other needs.

Colletti was chatty with reporters; Joel Sherman has more.  The Dodgers have moved on from Derek Lowe and are past the possibility of Jason VaritekC.C. Sabathia doesn’t sound like a priority for Colletti, while Rafael Furcal remains on the radar.  And of course a deal may be close with Casey Blake.
