I think Manny is just too much of a goofball to bother with steroids. I wouldn't be surprised if he's been clean the whole time.

I don't know, I just get that feeling about him.

Dodgers have offered Manny 1/$25MM for 2009 + 1/$20MM player-only option for 2010. I really can't see how he can turn this down right now, but who knows.

i'd be surprised if he has a team willing to give that much this late in the game.

i think he's trying to milk the dodgers.

if i were a contender i'd try and swoop in with a ridiculous 1 year 30 million dollar deal and plug him into my lineup in a heartbeat.

I agree. I'd be shocked if he ever took anything.

And, also agreed with Headache on just how confounding it is that he's not wearing someone's uniform yet.

Its the standard Boras negotiating ploy known as "mystery team".

Proper stroid use would seem to require far too much regimented discipline for Manuel Estrades Raimrez.

Perhaps the LI Ducks offer is just that much better than the Dodgers' $45MM over 2 years.

i honestly think boras is holding out hope that one of the two new york teams jumps in last second and will go back to the dodgers in a week or so if that doesn't happen.

in all honesty manny doesn't need to sign with anyone until after the WBC... it's a loophole this year. many teams will be without their stars until the WBC is over, so manny can just work out with the DR team and come in to camp right after it with whomever he signs with and not miss a beat.

I wonder how many teams called on Manny, with at least semi-legit offers. All I've heard was Dodgers, Giants, and a bit of Nats talk that I don't think was ever confirmed. And I half-think Boras made up the Giants stuff.
