The latest on the Manny Ramirez front, from Jon Heyman:
The Yankees are in on the Mark Teixeira sweepstakes but don't appear overly optimistic to outbid the determined Angels or Red Sox. Should the Yankees lose out for Teixeira, who's drawing interest from the perennially also-ran Nationals and Orioles in addition to the three aforementioned clubs, they seem ready to pounce for Manny Ramirez.Heyman says there are those suggesting that the Yankees are in on Mark Teixeira only to drive up his price. Also, if Teixeira goes to Boston, the Angels could involved in Ramirez talks.
I think there's zero chance Teixeira winds up a Yankee. But I have a strange feeling Ramirez will be batting behind Alex Rodriguez next year.
