    White Sox claim Manny

    http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/ml...ory?id=5503956


    The Chicago White Sox on Friday were awarded the claim on Manny Ramirez, according to a source monitoring the waiver wire.

    No National League team put in a claim on the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder. But two other American League teams claimed Ramirez, and strong indications are those teams were the Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays. The White Sox were awarded the claim because they were the AL contender with the lowest winning percentage.

    The White Sox now have until Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. ET to complete a trade. However, the Dodgers are five games out in the NL wild-card race, so they are in no rush to move quickly to get a deal done. And Ramirez would have to waive his no-trade clause and approve any move.

    The Dodgers have the option of pulling Ramirez back and keeping him, working out a trade with the White Sox, or just let him go via the waiver claim. The Dodgers could pick up some of Ramirez's money to work out a trade with the White Sox, or they could let Ramirez go and leave the White Sox responsible for all of his remaining contract.

    Manny wants another year to waive his no trade.

    Anyone who gives him another year is an idiot.

    Agree. Nobody is giving him another year. I think he has 2 hits in his last 55 at bats.

    I'm sure he cares what we think

    He will still go down as one of the top 3 right handed sluggers of all time.

    So he's better than one or more of the following?
