Are the Rays interested in Manny Ramirez?

3 Comments

ESPN’s Enrique Rojas tweets thusly:

En días seguidos, 2 personas cercanas a Manny Ramírez me han mencionado un supuesto interés de “Rays”. Podría ser infundado, pero intriga.

Thank goodness I have readers who speak Spanish. The translation: “In the previous days, 2 people in Manny’s inner circle have mentioned that Rays have shown some interest in him. This could be completely unfounded, but it is an interesting possibility.”

We’ll watch and wait to see if there’s anything to this — could be self-serving rebop from Manny’s camp —  but personally I think Manny would be a good risk for the Rays as long as he’s realistic on the dollars. I truly believe that he’s capable of a good year in 2011.
