Manny Ramirez Update

The Ramirez camp submitted a new offer to the Dodgers: a two year deal worth 55 million dollars, and no deferred money. "I told Ned that we stand by our proposal," Boras told "As far as we're concerned, there's no deadline. We're still talking." The Dodgers would like to add Ramirez sooner rather than later, so he can prepare with his teammates for the start of his first full season with the Dodgers.

The Giants are the only team that have expressed serious interest in Ramirez. With his price not showing any signs of coming down, I doubt any surprise teams will enter the race.

This story was approved by MLB Rumors.

You would think Ned Coletti would be getting a little bit gun shy about giving these free-agent outfielders ridiculous contracts, after Juan Pierre and Andruw Jones fell apart.

Of course, after he stole Rafael Furcal from the Cubs a few years ago, I don't have much sympathy. I just don't want to see such a class-A jerk like Manny Ramirez get any more money.
