The Boston Red Sox outbid the Indians and sign Manny Ramirez to a reported eight-year, $160 million contract. Ramirez had played the first 8 years of his career in Cleveland and established himself as one of the best hitters in all of baseball. He had hit 35+ homers and driven in at least 120 runs in each of the past three seasons.
