Scott Boras's Definition Of "Serious": More On Manny
But Scott Boras, who represents Ramirez, made it clear that the Dodgers would need to sweeten their deal when he said, "On behalf of Manny Ramirez, we will, for the first time, begin accepting serious financial offers on Friday.""Serious" of course meaning "more than one", something he can get when other teams can negotiate with the free agent. Arte Moreno is one such:
"He single-handedly took L.A. to the promised land," Moreno, in an interview with AM-830 at the Angels Baseball Foundation Golf Classic in Newport Beach, said of Ramirez, 36.
"He did a heck of a job, he hit great, he was a fan favorite, he did a great job with their young players. At the end of the day, you want people who can hit, and he may be one of the top right-handed hitters ever."
