Cashman denies Manny report

Last night, we heard from some Dominican paper that Manny Ramirez was on the verge of signing a three-year, $75 million deal. It just didn't make sense that he'd sign this early.

Luckily, Bryan Hoch was text messaging Brian Cashman and relayed this report:
Just swapped text messages with Brian Cashman, who wrote two words to splash some cold water on the Impacto Deportivo report of Manny Ramirez receiving a three-year, $75 million offer from the Yankees:

"Not true."
Couldn't have said it any better myself.

What would Cashman say at this point in time if it was true? Likely the same thing. That being said, I don't want Manny!

This is true, but those foreign reports are very sketchy. We'll see what the future holds.

Plausible deniability. It might be 3 yrs. for 74.5 million. Cashman would not be lying then.

That's the most accurate thing I've heard all day.
