Not really sure if this is a smart move or not, I mean, it's Oakland, I am sure they could use some 'star' power. Either way, I doubt he finishes the season.

No-lose scenario for Oakland. If Manny can still hit, they've signed a very valuable asset for just $500K. If he can't hit, they'll find that out in the minors when he's serving his suspension, and cut him without even paying his full salary.



"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

There might even be a chance that he'd be less likely to fall off the wagon in LA. He started using after a car accident in 2001, when he was with Tampa Bay's A-ball team in Charlestown.
