Manny Ramirez: Fans of the AL contenders – that’s Tampa, Boston, Minnesota, and Chicago – should read Ken Rosenthal’s take on Manny before getting giddy at the prospect of Ramirez DHing for your team down the stretch: “Claiming Manny Ramirez off waivers would be nuts. Trading for him — even if the Dodgers covered most of Manny’s remaining salary — would be only slightly less insane … Manny is 38. He has been on the disabled list three times this season due to leg injuries. And while he still can hit, he is not the same threat he once was, and all but useless in left field. There also is this: Manny still is owed about $4.25 million for the rest of the season.” He’d be great with Ozzie Guillen in Chicago. [Fox Sports]
