Manny Ramirez has turned down the Dodgers offer of 1 year, $25 Million. How can the Angels NOT make a run at him?
HE wants to make more than $40 Million to justify having left the Red Sox
HE hated the fishbowl that life in Boston is and would be in New York
HE wants to be the man playing for a winner
Scott Boras Checklist:
HE wants Manny to make more than Teixeira and would settle for less than A-Rod
HE wanted 4 years but Colletti has now forced him to settle for 2 years
Qualifying Team Checklist:
Look like Post-Season Contenders already
Could afford $50 Million over 2 years
Could afford a player option year based on performance
Don't have a strangulating media presence
QUALIFYING MAJOR LEAGUE TEAMS:
1. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
2. Seibu Lions
3. Nobody Else on Earth
Am I psychic that Manny is on his way here?
Am I delusional or what?
