• Gardenhire’s Hunch: Manny To Yankees

    [Ron] Gardenhire said he’s not bothered by the Yankees’ ability to spend $450 million on free agents, as they did this winter on CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira and A.J. Burnett. He’s more astonished than jealous.

    “None of us plays with our billfolds,” he said. “It’s just amazing a team can do that. Not one, two, (but) three. Just amazing.”

    And he’s got a hunch, too.

    “I still don’t think they’re done, I really don’t. I think there’s one more guy out there that eventually, someone’s going to say (sign him),” Gardenhire said, without mentioning free-agent outfielder Manny Ramirez by name.

    Well, if you look at who’s out there, Manny is the Walter of the pond now, right? But, I just don’t see the Yankees going there – unless A-Rod gets suspended and Ramirez is willing to take a one-year deal to play in the Bronx. And, what are the odds of that happening?

      I suspect Manny will sign with the Dodgers, unless the Giants swoop out of nowhere to land him. LA & Manny are still negotiating, and it seems the sides are closer than is reported.

      Juan Pierre, OTOH is rooting for Manny to sign elsewhere 😀

      Yeah right, with tickets going wanting, adding Manny won’t make a dent. Unless they’re $5 bleacher tickets. Again though, that won’t pay the freight. LOL

      Evan3457’s hunch: Manny back to the Dodgers, unless his price drops significantly, which it won’t.
