Say It Aint So! Angels Reportedly Interested In Manny Ramirez


MLBTR is reporting that the Angels are interested in free agent “ex slugger” and Scott Boras client Manny Ramirez

The Hangout View: Signing Manny at this point of his career really doesn’t make much sense. While he is still a patient  hitter (.412 OBP. last year), his power has dropped dramatically the past few seasons, bottoming out at just 9 home runs last year. Signing Vlad who is already a fan favorite and is coming off a really good season is the better move. This news and list of teams is likely just typical Scott Boras shenanigans. Of the five teams listed (Angels, Twins, Rangers, Rays and Blue Jays) I’d bet only one or two really are and that neither of those two is the Angels.

    oH PLEASE,Manny you have got to be kidding, he is such a baby and brings so much termoil. We better not, shoot sign me I could hit 9 homeruns and run lazily and throw like 20 feet but atleast I would lift up and support, It would only take 50k veersus what 2-3 mill. wHAT A WAIST OF TIME HE WOULD BE, DONT DO IT….

    Thanks for your comment, Shawn!

    This signing could be two-fold… the Halos may think they’re adding offense (what limited offense Manny may have remaining), but sometimes the public relations attention is more in focus.

    Reagins, with this signing, could say, “see! We’re not stingy, and we are doing everything we can to save this season!” Also, as much as I hate to say it, people will be more inclined to buy tickets JUST to see “Manny be Manny”
