Manny to the Tornadoes?

Manny Ramirez is still a free agent.  The Worcester Tornadoes want to change that.

According to a press release, the minor league CAN-AM team has offered the former Red Sox slugger a 2-year deal worth a STAGGERING $24,000, the league maximum for a veteran.

“I feel Manny would really enjoy playing in Worcester and hitting in our ballpark. Although I would be concerned about the cars traveling on I-290 during his at bats, it’s a risk worth taking,” said General Manager, Jorg Bassiacos.

THIS is the crazy Veeck stuff the Worcester Tornadoes should be doing all the time.  And Manny–the guy teammates had to convince to move to a “real” apartment–might be the only major leaguer crazy enough to go for it.

    Manny doesn’t deserve Worcester.
    Although as a slacker he’d fit right in. A city hall job would suit him just fine. Maybe an office next door to OBie. Maybe as Obie’s chauffeur. Still room in the budget for that I think.
    Then drag him around to the schools, dressed up in a clown suit and prop him up on a stool (in a dunce cap of course) in front of the kids tell and tell them this is what happens when you become a slacker.
    You get a city hall job!
