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.

Pffft.

We all know that Manny's game of choice is tennis.

After much ado about Manny Ramirez the past few days, BP's John Perotto hangs digits on the speculation. He writes about two possible Giant offers:

...one which would guarantee two years with vesting and club options that could make it a four-year, $100 million contract, and another that would guarantee him $63 million for three years with no options.

This is according to "a baseball source." Not to be confused with a source of baseballs, like a factory in Central America. I'm not exactly pissing on Perotto's campfire, but I won't get too excited (or dismayed) by this apparent ratcheting-up of Mannymania until I get some questions answered.

I think Boras has zeroed in on the Giants wallet again. 8-o
As amazing as Manny is, this is going to be a mega-overpay, I can feel it in my bones.
