Dodgers having cash problems again?

The Dodgers' $25 million offer to Manny Ramirez actually would have paid him $10 million this year and spread the rest over three years with no interest, Dylan Hernandez reports in the Times. He cost the Dodgers basically nothing last year — Boston paid his salary — and there were reports around baseball that the McCourts were short on cash. This time, agent Scott Boras says his side didn't reject the offer so much as counter that the money not be deferred. Boras says there is a noon deadline today to make progress.
