Per ESPN Deportes: "The Oakland Athletics are 'very interested' in making Manny Ramirez their designated hitter next season," a source said. (The source, we'd assume, is a baseball insider named "Bott Scoras," but we digress.) Ramirez appeared in a supremely forgettable 17 at-bats for the Rays last year before he retired because a less forgettable positive drug test posed a potential 100-game suspension. (Manny struck a deal with MLB this offseason, so he'll only miss 50 games if he comes back.) Then he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence in September.
