Manny Ramirez Signs with Oakland A’s
Oh Boy, this should be good. He is probably very excited to play for Brad Pitt and that fat-skinny-fat again dude from Superbad.
From the Associated Press.
PHOENIX — Slugger Manny Ramirez is close to signing a contract with the Oakland Athletics that would be worth approximately $500,000, a person with knowledge of the negotiations said Monday.
ESPN first reported earlier in the day that the sides had reached agreement, speaking directly to Ramirez. The person confirmed the sides were closing in on a contract, speaking on condition of anonymity because Ramirez still must take a physical and likely another drug test.
The A’s made public their interest in the 12-time All-Star, who is due to serve a 50-game suspension for his second positive drug test before he can play for Oakland. Barring rainouts, his first game could be May 30 – on his 40th birthday.
