Over the weekend, the Daily News reported that All-Star slugger Manny Ramirez has been expecting a three-year offer from the Yankees: "Ramirez has already turned down a two-year, $45 million offer from the Dodgers and has told friends he is seeking a four-year deal in the $100 million range." However, while Hank Steinbrenner wants some "Manny being Manny," Yankees GM Brian Cashman was apparently less enthused. Now Bombers Beat swapped text messages with Cashman, who says that rumors of a three-year, $75 million are "not true." Still, hopes of Ramirez selling his cars in the NYC area (like this) are alive.
