David Ortiz Doesn't Think Manny's Coming Back

In an AP story, David Ortiz is confirming what everyone knows.

The story quotes Ortiz:

Manny lives a difficult situation that only he and his family know about, and he does not want to play there. I spoke with him last week before he left for Brazil and he told me that he wants to go to a team in the West.

Of course that western team would be the Angels, but supposedly Mike Scioscia is less than thrilled at the prospect of managing Ramirez. According to the article:

Ramirez is owed $57 million during the next three years and has the right to block trades, so the Red Sox and his agent pledged to work together.

As for the Red Sox' intentions, the story quotes Ortiz, "I found out that they are doing whatever is possible to trade him." If the Angels decide Manny isn't worth the trouble, and he really wants to get out of Boston, who else wants him and could afford him besides the Mets? Stay tuned.
