Manny, Dodgers Close In On Deal

UPDATE 2: MLB.com is reporting that the Dodgers and Manny Ramirez have agreed to a two year deal worth 45 million dollars.

UPDATE: ESPN.com has retracted the story after Scott Boras denied the report. Manny is in fact flying to Los Angeles to meet with Dodgers executives and hopefully sketch out a deal to get Manny in Dodger Blue by the weekend.

ESPN.com's Enrique Rojas is reporting that the Dodgers and Manny Ramirez are closing in on a two year deal, worth 45 million dollars. If the deal goes through, Ramirez should be in camp with the Dodgers Wednesday. Boras finally pulled the trigger when he knew the price was starting to seriously fall. The Dodgers can't be too upset by this outcome. They got him for the price that worked for them.

I think Ramirez may be out to prove some people next season that he was worth all the money. All eyes will be on Dodgertown tomorrow when Manny reports to camp. And I wouldn't be surprised to see that Dodgers season ticket sales are up by the end of this week. 

This story was approved by MLB Rumors.
