Manny Wants to be a Yankee?

Posted: Saturday August 09, 2008 07:47AM ET
Having successfully orchestrated his divorce from Boston and his landing in with the Dodgers, Manny Ramirez would like to make life miserable for the Red Sox during the next few seasons. According to people who have spoken to the eccentric outfielder since he was dealt to L.A. on July 31, Ramirez wants to sign a free-agent deal with the Yankees this offseason and get 19 chances a year to punish Boston. "He wants to play for the Yankees so he can get at the Red Sox," a close friend of Ramirez's told The Post.

MY TAKE ON THIS: Great distraction for the Yankees. Only a few teams can afford him for a whole season. Boras doesn't care.... he's going to make millions off him where ever he goes. The only way he wouldn't stand to make money would to have had the Red Sox pick up Manny's option for the next two years.
