Manny going with Boras
The Manny Ramirez contact situation just took an interesting turn, with the left fielder hiring Scott Boras, according to a report by SI.com’s Jon Heyman. Sox GM Theo Epstein confirmed that Ramirez informed him of the move. Should be interesting to see what impact this has on Manny’s future. The Sox have a better relationship with Boras than most teams, so that might be reason for optimism.
Mike Petraglia of MLB.com wrote a strong story on Sean Casey today. Everyone loves the Mayor, particularly Mike, who loves all things Cincinnati.
I led my notebook with Javy Lopez, the lefty specialist who didn’t get lefties out last year. Lopez is out of options, so this is a key spring for him.
Also, the photo image for my Dice-K book is now in the ads for the book, so I’m an excited author. The book hits stores on March 18, but you can pre-order it now.
Also, it’s official. The Red Sox are going to the White House next Wednesday.
Talk to you later,
