Right, I mentioned him. They resigned him though so it doesn't count as losing one.

I think what it shows though is that you can go over the limit.

There's no shot the Yankees are going after Manny now. So I think it's moot.

It would have been a perfect situation for the Jays to sign the guy, certainly. Unfortunately this is the year they've decided to cut back payroll. %-6

Manny will probably end up going back to the Dodgers on a short term contract now.

I downloaded and read that section of the CBA. You're right, it's the limit or the number of A+B lost, whichever is greater. It's not vague in the actual language. Still, that puts the Yankees at a limit 5 and 4 are accounted for so they could still sign Manny. Also, we're assuming 3 due to 62 FA's but it could be and likely is higher. (I'm assuming MLBTradeRumor's list is not comprehensive but could be wrong about that too). ;-)

Manny Ramirez-OF- Dodgers Jan. 2 - 11:11 am et


CBS5 in San Francisco reports that the Giants have offered Manny Ramirez a four-year contract, but goes on to quote an unnamed team official as saying: "It's not happening."

A report that denies itself. That's a new one for us. According to the San Francisco Chronicle the Giants are not actively pursuing Ramirez at this point, but could become interested if his price drops further.

Smells like a Boras-initiated rumor if you ask me...probably trying to get the Dodgers to increase their offer

i've read that there is no limit on the # of A/B free agents a team can sign this year due to the size of the free agent pool.

also from MLBTradeRumors

3:33pm: The Chronicle's Henry Schulman doesn't have anything new on the KPIX report yet. But he's heard that the Dodgers offered Manny $60MM over three years at some point and were turned down.

2:40pm: MLB.com's Chris Haft splashes some cold water on the KPIX-TV rumor. His sources say recent reports linking the Giants to Manny are overblown. The Dodgers may be the only truly interested team currently. Haft says the Giants are looking to add a corner infield bat instead (they've been linked to Edwin Encarnacion and Jorge Cantu in the past, among others).


i really doubt the Giants are serious bidders

MLB on XM reporting that SF has put a two year deal for $50 million on the table. Option for third year based on performance benchmarks and player option for a 4th year.

The unrest in LA grows...

Is Manny going to kick himself out of the league?
He is basically making himself unaffordable.
And turning many teams off, I hope the GMs get together and have a boycott of him.

Hey Manny I hope you and Barry have fun playing golf.
