Scott Boras has been pushing for Manny Ramirez to get 6 years and 150 million on the open market. Remember a couple weeks ago when people were hesitant to give him a three year deal. Manny just wants to double that. I don’t even think I’d give him 2 years 50 million. To me the fair price would be 4 years, 80 million. You can’t go past four years with a guy that could just quit the team like he did in Boston. I’d also put heavy incentives in the deal for his hard work. Any funny buisness, and he loses all incentives. There could be a vesting player option as well. This 25 million a year talk is crazy. In fact, it’s almost as crazy as a 36 year old demanding 6 years. Plus, there’s no great fit. There’s the Dodgers, but they have an outfield surplus. Even though, there have been rumors that the Dodgers offered him 2 years, 60 million. If I was Manny, I’d accept this in a second and then get another big deal after the two. The Mets seem to want to spnd their money on pitching. The Braves might do it hoping Bobby Cox could keep Manny in line, but they also would rather spend on pitching. Angels could be a fit, but they seem more likely to bring back Mark Teixera. The Yankees would rather add starters. If they are going to bring in a hitter, Tex is the likely one. No other team could afford his 20 million per year contract. I don’t see him getting what he wants.
