Via a tweet from ESPN’s Buster Olney, our original suspicions were confirmed. The Yankees will not be adding Manny Ramirez this off-season.
Heard this: The Yankees have no interest in signing Manny Ramirez. Jorge Posada will be the full-time DH, and they have three OFers lined up
That makes all the sense in the world and I don’t think this is disinformation or double-speak from the front office. Manny on 2011 Yankees just makes no sense. He may still be able to hit, but he can’t field to save his life and the Yankees, as Olney reminds us, have a DH and OF situation with which they’re comfortable. I’m glad this rumor got put to bed sooner rather than later.
