08:08 AM ET 12.09 | Keep those Mannywood signs mothballed. Manny Ramirez is not coming back to the Dodgers. General Manager Ned Colletti immediately shot down the far-fetched idea of re-signing Ramirez, who electrified Dodger Stadium upon arriving in 2008 only to leave two years later as a disgraced figure. "I think we're probably past that at this point," Colletti said. Ramirez, who retired last season instead of facing a 100-game suspension for violating baseball's drug policy for the second time, has filed for reinstatement. Any team that signs Ramirez would be without him for 50 games. ... The Dodgers' outfield is set. Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Juan Rivera are slated to start, with Jerry Sands and Tony Gwynn Jr. expected to be the backups.

Last week an article said he was headed to the O's. who cares for this tool anymore!

His last time out he had to settle for a million dollar deal, with his recent past history I can't see him getting much more than that.

The Rays were desperate enough last year and they have one of the more brilliant GM's in the game.

The Mets new slogan for this year....ha

" Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

What a difference a year can make though ... looks like Manny's on the skids ... it would be a gamble.

Plus, he would start out being suspended for 50 games.

I doubt he has the ability to play in the field anymore, so it would have to be an AL team.
