Manny Ramirez says he’s signed with the A’s

Monday, February 20, 2012

imageSo now the jury is in session in Oakland. ESPN’s Pedro Gomez reports that the much-rumored A’s signing of Manny Ramirez is a done deal. Ramirez, a two-time MLB drug abuser punishee, must sit out the first 50 games and then is expected to become the A’s designated hitter.

Add: Gomez, who’s kept in touch with Ramirez, describes the slugger as a “changed man” and says he’s “ecstatic” for the chance to come out of retirement for a reported $500,000. We’re talking about a guy who earned $20 million each of his last two years with the Dodgers before retiring last year after batting 1 of 17 with Tampa Bay rather than serve the 50-game suspension then.
