Levine @ ESPN:

Outfielder Manny Ramirez has been placed on waivers by the Los Angeles Dodgers, sources tell ESPN.com.

Teams will have until Friday afternoon to put in a claim on Ramirez. Any team that’s awarded the claim would have until Tuesday afternoon to work out a trade with the Dodgers and, because Ramirez has a full no-trade clause, get his approval to waive that clause and accept a deal.

Teams are not convinced the Dodgers would dump Ramirez’s contract on any club that claims him. The Dodgers, rather, are likely to explore a trade in which they pick up some of the money but receive a prospect or prospects in return, sources tell ESPN.com’s Jayson Stark.

Stats: B-R, FG

If Jerry comes up with the dough, go for it Kenny! But not if ‘If Jerry comes up with the dough’ means taking the money from the already low draft budget.

I just wish the Sox, and not the Twins, had Jim Thome from Day 1.



  1. I wonder if Ozzie is saying the truth when he says he still wouldn’t want Thome.
