Manny rejects latest Dodgers offer

Negotiations are back to square one, says Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti. If Manny were talking to reporters tonight, I bet he'd wink and pretend he doesn't speak English very good while quipping that it's still the 7th inning and he's still sitting on his pitch. As that 2007 New Yorker profile discussed, Manny isn't too keen on spring training. The reported offer would have paid Manny $25 million this season and added a second year at $20 million with Manny holding the option to opt out if he saw a better deal elsewhere.
