The Oakland A’s have reached an agreement with free agent outfielder, Manny Ramirez, for one year at $500 thousand on a minor league contract.

Manny will have to serve a 50 game suspension for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs before he joins the A’s so the earliest he will be in the lineup is June 2. Because of his suspension and the fact that he doesn’t exactly have the best clubhouse reputation over the course of his career, there will undoubtedly be some negativity surrounding this move from fans and players alike.

I can understand why. From a fan’s perspective, he cheated. The baseball world is just getting over the steroid era and a lot of people won’t want that tarnished memory around the A’s, almost especially since the A’s are not expected to compete.

From a player’s perspective, it potentially takes a roster spot away from a younger guy trying to earn his way onto the team. Going into the offseason, the A’s were short on outfielders but most thought they would give guys like Michael Taylor and Chris Carter a chance to play everyday to see what they could do. Now, the A’s almost have too many outfielders and they just added Manny to be the DH. Someone is likely to lose playing time and may even get traded as a result.

My answer to the fans is pretty simple:

To the A’s fans who look at this signing as a negative, remember that it is basically a no risk/high reward situation. First, the A’s are paying him just over the league minimum salary; even for the Oakland, that contract, which is prorated and won’t pay him during the suspension, won’t be detrimental. More importantly, it’s a minor league contract, which doesn’t guarantee Manny a roster spot.

Does Manny Ramirez have anything left in the tank?

The A’s will have 50 games with which to find an in-house solution at the DH. If Chris Carter/Seth Smith/ Johnny Gomes earns that spot, the A’s can cut Manny and not think twice about it. If no one grabs the reigns, on June 2 you plug in a guy with a career .312/.411/.585 slash line and 555 home runs to his resume.

My answer to the players who think Manny will take their spot is even simpler:

If you want to play in the big leagues: EARN IT. You don’t just get to play in the show because you’re 25 and you’re entering your prime. You have to prove that you are ready and quite frankly (even though I wanted to see them play) guys like Michael Taylor, Chris Carter and Brandon Allen haven’t done that. If you think that signing a guy who sat out almost all of last year and who will be forty by the time he is allowed to play this year threatens your chances to make the team, then you have bigger problems. Spring training is about showing the decision makers what you can do.

The A’s have been so devoid of anything that resembles a capable offense lately that if you prove you can hit, they will find a spot for you in that lineup. Period. So stop making excuses and go play baseball.

There’s one more angle at which to look at this situation. The A’s just invested $36 million in Cuban outfielder, Yoenis Cespedes, in the hopes he will provide the power the A’s so desperately covet. I have no idea what the relationship between he and Manny would be but I would think it could be positive. I know they’re both from different countries (Manny is Dominican) but they are both Latin and I would think that the A’s have at least hoped that Manny could act as a mentor to Cespedes. Who knows maybe they’ve expressed this already to Manny. But Cespedes, a guy with all the physical tools in the world, could learn a lot from Manny, who is arguably the best right handed hitter ever and took a similar path to the big leagues. It certainly couldn’t hurt. Then again, we are talking about Manny Ramirez.

    We know what Manny can (and can’t) do but no one really has any idea what Cespedes can do. Shouldn’t that be the bigger story with the bigger salary and the bigger impact from Day One? Admittedly Mannywood always generates some interest but at this point not until June 2 – and wasn’t it supposed to be a 100-game suspension for his second offense?

      Absolutely that’s the bigger story. In fact I wrote about how I think the Cespedes signing will affect the team and how it is a good message to the fans. I think signing Manny could help Cespedes as well but that’s anyone’s guess at this point.
      As for the 100 game suspension, MLB reduced it because Manny missed all of last year. Though that was his fault because he retired, so weather or not he SHOULD have had his suspension reduced is a different argument. It was reduced, though, to just 50 games.

    While I personally wouldn’t want a man with Ramirez’ baggage (PEDs) mentoring my new, big investment (Cespedes), your theory makes the most sense. They just hope he has enough left to make the club and not embarrass himself. But if he couldn’t do it with the White Sox a few years back, I don’t know how he’s gonna’ do it this spring. Maybe Yoenis threw Ramirez name into the discussion when he was being courted?

    Good assessment of the issues surrounding Oakland’s signing of Ramirez.

      Hey, thanks a lot. Ya it’s tough to expect anything positive to come out of this. But the fact that they can just cut him if things go bad makes it worth the risk.
      And part of me thinks that if Manny’s head really is in the right place (doubtful) then he can still hit. We’ve seen what he can do for a few months if he’s motivated. Granted that was three to four years and multiple drugs ago so who knows. I saw a quote this morning after I posted the article where Beane said something to the effect of we were having trouble finding a reason not to sign him. Hard to disagree with that if you look at it logically.

    I think I can see what Mr. Beane meant. Manny’s always seemed to have a strong likeability-rating, even when his approval-rating is ebbing low. But the hair has to go. Same goes for Tim Lincecum. In fact, because you live in the Bay area you should contact both of their agents and arrange for a joint visit to the barbershop. Make an event out of it, for charity, for fun.

    You can call it, ‘Hair today…gone tomorrow.’ LOL. Maybe no.

      haha. That’s a really good idea. Seriously though, those guys’ hair dos are getting ridiculous.

    One thing we know about Manny is that he doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to – such as waiting for the third out to go behind the bleachers and take a whiz… or even waiting for the game to be over before hitting the showers! My guess is he wants to play or he wouldn’t bother signing a minor league contract!

      That’s my thinking too. Like a said, if he’s motivated, we’ve all seen what he can do. I don’t know how much the steroids (or whatever he actually took) helped but I’m not ready to say he’s done.

      … but I’m almost ready.

    MANNY IN THE BAY! At the very least, Cespedes will have a nice transition to, not just the Majors, but the States in general, with possibly the best right handed hitter of his generation as a mentor. I can’t see anything wrong with this picture other than it may now be difficult to get a ticket once Junes comes!
