3:50pm: Not sure where the rumor started, but you can cross the Cardinals off the list for Manny suitors.
8:39am: Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times talked to Scott Boras, who anticipates that his client Manny Ramirez will be signed by Spring Training (February 14th). Boras claims the Manny negotiations are taking shape and progressing and "the train has left the station." Of course, we all recall Kevin Towers saying the same thing about a Jake Peavy trade.
Boras acknowledged that he’s still talking with the Dodgers and (of course) implied that he has more than one additional suitor.
In other Manny news, Mets manager Jerry Manuel said he’d like to add the slugger (despite the team’s lack of interest).
