Any ideas of where he is going? Maybe New York, however, he wants a long contract, and Big Money. I do wonder will the Yanks sign him, as they did Roger? Three strikes in baseball and out you are.

No idea, with Scott Boras as his agent anything is possible. I think he would be a good fit in SF, the Giants have a lot of very good young pitchers and a deep farm system. Ramirez could help keep them competitive while the kid batters develop, and give the pitchers some confidence about staying in the game.

If it's NY, it better be Queens and not the Bronx.

I think he'll be back in the American league. I can't imagine a NL team risking all that money on a player that doesn't play the field that well to begin with. In the AL, if his field abilities sing even lower, they can always put him where he's most affective. At the plate in the DH spot. In the NL, he has to play the field to bat. That could be risky for a team, especially with his age and diminishing attitude (not that it was ever great to begin with).

I hope he and Boras overvalued the market when they turned down $25mil. It would be good if he went unsigned, or had to sign for a meager $18mil.

I hope you're right too and i'm a die hard Yankee fan.We do want him and I don't see him going to the Mets.I think probably the Dodgers and a lesser chance with us.We would have to ditch at least 2 OF'ers first.

Surprised he turned the last 45 million down for 2 yrs. I hope he ends w/o a team this year. Baseball may contact a little in the next couple years if economy doesnt improve.

He's just turned down the Dodgers for the fourth time! You have to wonder when Scott Boras becomes more of a hindrance than an advantage.
