    Scott Boras needs to be lynched.

    You have no doubt seen the numerous reports that are out there this morning that the Dodgers' two-year, $45 million offer to Manny Ramirez was largely deferred money. He would receive $10 million this year, with the other $15 million deferred, and $10 million NEXT year and the other $10 million deferred. If Manny had exercised the option year, he would have gotten $10 million in each of 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 and $5 million in 2013. And here is the kicker to the whole thing: BORAS/MANNY WOULD HAVE ACCEPTED THE OFFER if it had actually been what we all originally reported it was, a straight $25 million this year, a straight $20 million for 2010, with an opt-out after the first year. Given all of that, it's no wonder they didn't take the deal. The wonder is that the Dodgers wasted their time making an offer that they HAD TO KNOW wouldn't be accepted. Why would they do that, you ask? Well, now Frank McCourt gets to say to his fan base, ``Hey, I tried.'' Well, no, Frank, you really didn't.

    Coletti has stated that they were waiting for a counter offer. Whats the hold up? McCourt has run out of excuses.

    If the parking lot attendant screws this up with Manny he is going to have a furious fan base. It really can't be this hard with the cash cow that the Dodgers are for the McCa$h's, can it??!!
