So according to USA Today, Manny Ramirez wants to back to Cleveland to finish his career.
Now, maybe we are making too big a deal out of this, but come on. You just signed a contract with the LA Dodgers and already you are campaigning for a return to your native team?
Not only did he do it, but he’s dragging Jim Thome, who plays for the Chicago White Sox, with him. He thinks the two should head back there together to call it a career.
“I love L.A. I really do. But the way the city responded to me, it reminded me a lot of how it was in Cleveland.“
You love LA, but you turn around and stab them in the back. Interesting!
I’m even more happy that the Mets did not sign him. I mean, I get it. He wants to end it where he started. Who doesn’t? These days it is every players dream.
If that was the case, maybe you should’ve had Scott Boras just talk to the Cleveland Indians during the offseason and save everyone a headache.
There is a rule in baseball called “Tampering”. Basically, if a player is under contract with a team a GM of another club cannot talk about that player coming to their team. Otherwise, they get slapped with a lawsuit.
Maybe there should be a rule like that for the players.
You have to love Manny Ramirez!
