Manny Ramirez said Monday that 2010 will be his final season as a Dodger.
Ramirez, 37 and in the final year of a two-year contract, hinted at both retirement or a return to the American League as a designated hitter as possibilities but committed to neither.
“I know I won’t be here next year, so I’ll just enjoy myself,” Ramirez said. “I’m happy I’m here now, I just know I won’t be here. I’ll wait until September and see where we’re at. The game is still fun, but I’ll wait until the season ends and see where my family’s at and stuff like that and make a choice. I just want to see how my body responds and stuff like that.” — Ken Gurnick
