The Oakland Athletics dipped into the well and with little investment and minimal risk are taking their chances with Manny Ramirez.
Manny coming off of his reduced to 50 games suspension this season for an illegal drug failed test signed a minor league contract with A's for a prorated $500,000. The amount will be more like $300,000 under the league minimum after the suspension. Very cheap if Manny makes it back to the big show.
Could we find Manny Ramirez wearing a Triple AAA Sacramento River Rats logo and fizzle away or in an Oakland A's uniform?
Will "Manny being Manny" effect the young talent such as Yoennis Cespedes positively or negatively? If the bat is there he can surely show the kids how to hit!
