McCourt Really Fed Up With Ramirez?

33

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/jon_heyman/03/02/manny.dodgers/index.html?eref=T1&bcnn=yes I know there was a previous Ramirez thread, but it's fallen down into the abyss. Jon Heyman, normally Boras' mouthpiece, reports that McCourt might be fed up (read done) with all things Manny. While Torre and Colletti plead with him otherwise, McCourt is known around LA for being emotional and well, vindictive. if McCourt's petulance prevails, Ramirez actually just might find himself without a team, since apparently not even the Giants have the resources to spite the Dodgers. McCourt had a good point in an LA Times article this weekend. He offered Ramirez arbitration and was turned down. Any arb decision can't contain deferred money, so it isn't as if McCourt wasn't prepared to pay him in full. Plus, what McCourt left unspoken was that Boras blew a chance to submit an outrageous arb number that he stood a good chance of winning. While McCourt's an ass, there's still a lot of sentiment here in LA that Ramirez and his agent can just take a hike.
