Manny sees Cleveland reunion before career is finished

It hasn’t even been six full weeks since the Dodgers re-signed Manny Ramirez to a two-year contract and already Man-Ram is talking about playing for another team.

Before the Dodgers’ 11-1 win in their home opener against the Giants on Monday, Ramirez indicated that he would like to play in Cleveland one more time before his career is finished.

“I would like to play for Cleveland one more time, to go back where I started,” said Ramirez, with the Dodgers playing their home opener Monday against the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium. “I have so many good memories there, why not?

“I think to go back where you started is everyone’s dream.”

Thome and Ramirez each might be eligible for free agency this winter if Ramirez opts out of his two-year contract. And if they become free agents, Ramirez told Thome, they should both consider returning to Cleveland.

“Manny was very sincere when he brought that up to me,” Thome said. “Manny was saying how special that would be for us to both go back together. He was very passionate. Baseball’s such a weird thing. You never know what’s going to happen.”

I’m not going to make a bigger deal out of this than it is, but it’s amazing to me that Ramirez just did a four month dance with the Dodgers over a new contract and the second he has the opportunity, he talks about potentially playing for another team down the road.
