Is it true? Is Manny Ramirez finally on the verge of signing with the Dodgers? Well, that certainly seems to be the case.
According to several sources, including the LA Times, Manny is set to meet with Dodgers owner Frank McCourt as early as Wednesday morning. It's about time!
I, for one, will be so glad when this saga is over. I don't really blame either side, because when it comes to negotiations, it's all business. Both sides want the best possible deal without giving up much to the other.
But regardless of how long the negotiations took, one thing was never in question: LA was the best and only place for Manny to play in 2009.
The Dodgers knew it, the fans knew it, and ultimately, Manny knew it.
"I'm happy in L.A. I like my teammates and had a great time. The fans were so good to me; they treated me the best anywhere in my career."
