NY Sports Dog: Manny to Dodgers: "No Thanks!"

Manny to Dodgers: "No Thanks!"

In a flurry of Manny activity, we've seen an offer made, and offer quickly rejected.

According to the LA Times, Manny Ramirez wasted no time rejecting the Dodgers' latest offer, a one-year, $25-million proposal that was presented Sunday to his agent, Scott Boras.

The question is, "now what?"

I'd like to think it possible that the Mets could swoop in and snag the slugger for 2 years and $40-44M, but that seems unlikely given all the reports we've heard, like this one from the NY Post, that claim the Mets have all but taken themselves out of the running for his services.

Then again, we've seen this chess game before, and in year's past, it's been the owners that caved. This year may be different.

If so, is Manny truly willing to wait out the market by sitting out all or part of Spring Training?

Are the Mets going to make the offer that Tony Paige alluded to previously based on his source (a former Omar Minaya associate)?

Like everything involving Manny, this song and dance continues to keep Met fans on pins and needles, and without a formal declaration from the club of "No Mas", it will do so as long as there is even a glimmer of hope that he brings that Silver bat to Queens.Reblog this post [with Zemanta]

The Mets shoud offer a deal where Manny can make his $50 Million, but there should be a lot of incentives.
