Just when you thought you’d seen it all from Manny Ramirez… here we go again.
Ken Davidoff writes that Manny is feeling ignored on the free agent market, and will consider retiring if he doesn’t receive a good offer soon.
I give this about a 0.3% chance of being a legitimate threat, and about a 99.7% chance that this is the old cliche of Manny being Manny at this point.
The Dodgers took a two-year, $45MM offer off the table when free agency began. The Yankees have interest but are unlikely to pursue if they land another quality starting pitcher. The Nationals have been thrown around, but they’re wrapped up in Mark Teixeira right now. In the meantime, it’s good to know Manny is still enjoying himself…
Ramirez told a friend that he spends most of his time working out, watching cartoons and playing video games.
