Manny Ramirez to the Angels Now Makes TOO Much Sense

New, 112 comments

Manny Ramirez has turned down the Dodgers offer of 1 year, $25 Million. How can the Angels NOT make a run at him?

Manny Checklist:

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?
