REPORT: Giants Offer Manny Ramirez 4-Year Deal

Dave DeVito@davidjdevitoContributor IJanuary 2, 2009

According to CBS 5 in San Francisco, a “well-connected” source claims the Giants have offered Manny Ramirez a 4-year deal.

 

The station says the financial details are not known yet, but the deal carries incentives for the third year of the deal and a club option for a fourth year.

 

This would seem to be the perfect answer for a Giants team whose fans are used to some controversy.

 

Albeit, in a much different way, Ramirez can give the Bay area fans something to both, be entertained by, and get excited about.

 

Many have wished that Barry Bonds would go away, once and for all. They may get their wish with a new era of Manny-Being-Manny, San Francisco style.

 

The Dodgers are the only team to have been known to have made an offer for Ramirez. An offer that was reported to be a two year, $45 Million deal. That deal was reportedly met with a comment by agent Scott Boras that he was only interested in fielding "serious offers".

 

That deal has since been revoked by the Dodgers. Though both sides were believed to have resumed serious talks.

 

It looks like the Hot Stove is burning up in the New Year.
