Perhaps because it is from the joke of a paper called the New York Post, but an article in today's paper is causing a stir from LA to Boston. See the direct text below, courtesy of the NYPost:
"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 YankeesNew York 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. "
Now I'm not ready to put much stock in this report, but I certainly would not be surprised to see the Yankees overpay for another aging, formerly elite player who will turn some heads initially and sell t-shirts, but ultimately fades down the stretch (for example: way too many to name).
