Manny Ramirez to finally resign with the Dodgers.
This results in what I think is a net loss for Ramirez. He allowed Scott Boras to convince him he could get $100 million if he forced himself out of the $40 million he could have gotten with the Red Sox. He blew his bridges up spectacularlly in Boston. He damaged his career, and reputation, and nets about $2 or $3 million with only one year guarrenteed. He can opt out next year and test the waters next year, but he will be 39.
Had he stayed in Boston, he may have been able to be a free agent this year and he would have gotten a bigger contract because more teams would have trusted his intentions. The alternative would have been a measly $20 million.
Instead he is a one man island. His teammates will accept him becuase they have to, and because he can rake. But if he doesn't rake, he will be nuclear waste.
