Manny Ramirez is an idiot

Or maybe Scott Boras is the idiot? Or perhaps they’re BOTH idiots. After Manny turned down the Dodgers most recent contract offer, the Dodgers pulled the offer off the table and now say negotiations must start from scratch.

I realize that Manny doesn’t exactly need the money, but since there isn”t exactly a long line of teams lining up for his services, he really should just SHUT THE #?&% UP and take whatever the Dodgers offer him if he wants to remain employed by MLB.

    I know Boras likes to drag out his negotiations until the last minute, but this Manny thing is ridiculous. Manny could have stepped in at any point and said, “OK. Let’s get this done.” But he didn’t. So I think they’re both nuts.

    Say what you will about Boras.. I personally despise the man, but he’s damn good at his job. His job is to solely gain the largest and more profitable contract for his clients possible. True his tactics are absolutely abhorrent, but it’s up to the owners to stop giving into his demands or he’ll just continue on his merry little way.

    Unfortunately, Jon, you’re absolutely right about Boras. It’s really a shame that the Texas Rangers front office didn’t laugh in his face when he made his $252 million contract demand for Alex Rodriguez back in 2000. I keep waiting for team owners to wise up and not give in to Boras…so far so good with the Dodgers. We’ll just have to wait and see how this plays out.
