MLB Rumors: Manny Ramirez


Tony Jackson of the LA Daily News offers this nugget:

Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti confirmed on Monday that the club had made a second formal offer to free-agent left fielder Manny Ramirez. Although Colletti wouldn't divulge the length or the amount of the proposal, a source with knowledge of the situation, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the Dodgers offered Ramirez a one-year contract with a base salary of $25 million.

Is this the type of offer that says the Dodgers have no interest in Manny or is it the type of offer that spurs a number of teams to tell themselves they can easily top that offer? 

I'm guessing the "source with knowledge of the situation" is a Scott Boras plant if it is the latter.
