First, Frankie and now this. Only unlike the previous statement, Arte doesn't explicitly say he won't go after Manny.
Yesterday, Ken Rosenthal said the Angels briefly considered Manny Ramirez during their organizational meetings, but the idea was "tabled rather quickly."
Still, Angels owner Arte Moreno was full of kind words for Manny yesterday on an AM-830 radio show:
"He single-handedly took L.A. to the promised land. He did a heck of a job, he hit great, he was a fan favorite, he did a great job with their young players. At the end of the day, you want people who can hit, and he may be one of top right-handed hitters ever."
It's hard to see the Angels getting serious about Ramirez unless Mark Teixeira and C.C. Sabathia sign elsewhere first.
I am one who does not support Manny being a Halo. However, his bat is undeniable. What do you think?
