please... does anyone really think that george steinbrenner has a ceiling on spending? what would stop him from having matsui, soriano, ramirez in the outfield... bernie as DH, , giambi at first, nick johnson comming off the bench AAAAND bringing in a guy like vidro or milwood? the yankees may not bite on ramirez... but it most certainly will not be for financial reasons. the extra attendance alone that manny, being a kid from washington heights, will bring in would push the yankees over the 4million attendance mark. so again... if the yankees don't bite, it's because they have other plans... NOT because they don't want to spend hte money.

"The New York Yankees have no interest in placing a waiver claim on Boston Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez, according to a baseball executive who has had contact with a high-ranking member of the team's front office Thursday."

He may not have a ceiling, but he needs to be smart. I money was no object he'd have the entire AL allstar team playing for him, an a billion dollar payroll.

True, I'm waiting for him to sign EVERYONE. And I mean everyone.

he would... what he doesn't realize is that he can't win that way... sure, they may win 90-100 games in the regular season by default, but as the playoffs showed, the best players don't always make the best team

The Yanks have decided to claim Manny , and due to his lack of defensive abilities in Left, are switching him to 3rd base. Derek Jeter was quoted as saying, "He can't do any worse than Error Boone over there and he'll hit more than .154."
