Manny Ramirez negotiations with Dodgers not over. Yet.

February 27, 2009 | 10:05 am

With their press release last night about agent Scott Boras' rejection of their latest offer, the Dodgers definitely won the public relations battle, making Manny Ramirez look greedy in a time of economic distress. Now it seems as if there is more to the story.

So how are they going to spin it if Ramirez actually turns up wearing a Dodger uniform by the start of the season? That's a big if but perhaps not as big an if as it seemed last night with owner Frank McCourt's statement that negotiations were starting from scratch.

This remains an evolving story.
