The Dodgers offered Manny Ramirez, who is 36, $45M over 2 years, and Manny turned it down. Now the Dodgers have taken the offer off the table.
Manny may not be paying much attention to the world around him. The economy is crashing, and those financial firms who ponied up the big bucks for the luxury suites that help pay his salary have gone under. Meanwhile, as the NY Times points out today, with the US auto industry near bankruptcy, a huge chunk of ad revenue to all sports is threatened. Where does Manny think more $ is going to come from? And who is crazy enough to pay an aging hitter, even one as good a Manny, who has a habit of not giving his all and being a butcher in the field, more than that? Even the Yankees aren't that stupid.....maybe I should put a ? at the end of that?
Call them back and say "Si" Manny, before it's too late.
