You may have seen the news today that Manny Ramirez turned down the Dodgers’ one-year, $25 million offer and you may be thinking: “Perfect, Manny will sign with the Giants!”
I checked in this morning with someone in the know and he believes Manny is still going to wind up with the Dodgers, probably on a two-year deal. You don’t seriously think the Giants can pony up $25 million for one year, do you? I doubt they’d even be able to swing $35-40 million for two years. I think the only way the Giants end up with Manny is if somehow he could be had for $12-15 million a season, two years max.
