Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci is reporting that Manny Ramirez wants out of Boston. Manny told team officials he is unhappy in Boston, particularly with his lack of privacy off the field.
There’s no way the Sox will trade Manny now in the middle of a pennant race. Plus, there aren’t many teams out there who could take on the $57 million Ramirez is owed over the next three years.
Ramirez should just do what he does best: Clam up and hit. He’s one of the best hitters in the game, and he can easily help Boston to another title.
