MLB Rumors: Manny Ramirez To The New York Yankees

Denials by Yankees' GM Brian Cashman to the contrary, Impacto Deportivo stands by yesterday's report that Manny Ramirez is going to sign with the New York Yankees. Here is the Google-translated article. (Ed: Some of the English translation was corrected by me but not the Cano sentence.)

Although the general manager of the Yankees, Brian Cashman, has dismissed a report that first signed for three years and 75 milion dollars to Manny Ramírez, the source of this confirmed Monday afternoon that the business is going.
According to the source of, Ramirez is a need for the team. The reason?
Jason Giambi and Bobby Abreu, representing nearly 50 home runs and 200 runs batted in between the two, do not return, and Hideki Matsui and Jorge Posada had health problems in 2008. Besides Robinson Canó comes a year below.
That forces the Yankees to look for another bat hard to help Alex Rodriguez, Manny Ramírez and that is.
Manny is in Brazil at this time and his return, immediately go to the press conference.
The business is going.
