”I am very pleased Billy (Beane, GM) was able to add Manny to our team,” owner Lew Wolff said in an email to The Associated Press. ”I look forward to welcoming him and the entire team that Billy and his people have assembled for the coming season.” – foxsports

Manny Ramirez signed with the Oakland Athletics, minor league team, for a bare minimum $500K on Monday! The league minimum is $480K. He will not be able to play until June 2 (@Kansas City), due to a 50-game suspension for his second violation of steroid use last season! Manny, 39, was initially given a 100-game suspension, but the sentence was reduced because he sat out nearly all of last season. It hasn’t been determined yet, if $$$ will be deducted for the games he will miss.
