A local writer in the Bay Area has said that he thinks the Dodgers have made their final offer to Manny Ramirez. We all know that the Dodgers have made 3 offers but none of them seem to be anywhere near what Ramirez wants. I still think there is no way Manny will end up with anyone else other than the Dodgers, but a lot of Giants fan feel they can snag him now if they really want him. It’s hard to believe that Manny is still a free agent and were a little over a week away from the start of spring training.
Only time will tell how this Manny drama will end. Will he hold out past the start of the season and wait to get signed in May? I wish I knew the answer. I’m sure everyone wishes he would just pick a team and sign already. This Manny story has been getting old, but he’s such a big player to still be without a team. Manny could end up really screwing himself if he holds out to long. Teams that have the money for Manny might get tired of waiting and sign other players like Adam Dunn or Bobby Abreu.
Barry Zito has been trying to get updates from Scott Boras about Manny Ramirez but he said Boras is being to professional. He won’t give Zito any insight either. It’s just a waiting game for everyone. The Dodgers have much more to lose by not signing Manny. They had the Dodgers and the Giants never had him.
Are you guys tired of the Manny rumors or do you love this because it’s part of baseball?
