A's to Sign Man-Ram

Postby bigh0rt » Mon Feb 20, 2012 3:59 pm

Manny Ramirez told ESPN's Pedro Gomez on Monday that he has agreed to a deal with the Oakland Athletics.

Sources tell Gomez the deal is worth about $500,000. Ramirez is obligated to serve a 50-game suspension without pay before beginning play for the A's due to violating baseball's drug policy for the second time. With no rainouts, the first game Ramirez would be eligible to play is June 2 at Kansas City.

He sits out the first 50 games just like Ryan Braun. Who isn't picking him up in June when he comes back in Oakland?

Do they play him at SS with all of those DH's on the roster?

So is this pretty much proof that Bonds was black-balled? Wouldn't surprise me if he could outhit Manny right now.

Berry could easily hit 20 bombs still. Manny... well he can be Manny? The guy is going to do nothing in that ballpark.

Barry Bonds is 47 and post-steroids, there's no way he's better than Manny. Then again you could be joking, I can't tell.

Just another step in proving Beane has taken up drugs as a hobby. This offseason has made no sense for the A's and is one of the worst overall in MLB history. Trade all of your young good players and then overpay for a bunch of aging mediocre OFs and a massively overrated foreign guy.
