Early today it was announced that the maligned slugger, Manny Ramirez, signed a one-year minor league contract with the Oakland A's, for what will be worth $500,000 if Man-Ram sticks with the big league club.

There have been some mixed sentiments about signing Manny within the Oakland clubhouse. Ramirez's former teammates, Bartolo Colon and Coco Crisp are both happy with the move.

However, there has also been some negative feedback on the signing, as one player expressed concerns over Manny taking away at-bats from the younger players that will be with the team for the long term.

If we were to assume that Manny would have taken a 500K contract to play for any team in the MLB, there are five other teams in the league that could have used the right-handed power hitter more than Oakland.
