Manny Ramirez today was offered his third deal of the off season for an eye-popping $45 million for a two year contract. It's the same money he was offered in the first place months ago, when maybe the economy wasn't as bad as it is now.
He should take this money and be happy. If he doesn't take this most recent offer, he's out of his mind.
Especially when you consider that no other team has made an offer yet.
