A $500K question mark?
The move by A's GM Billy Beane to sign Manny Ramirez has been described as "low risk," but bringing in a talent/personality like Ramirez will have an impact one way or another.
Will he see the field?
The deal is in place, but the A's have plenty of time to evaluate Ramirez thanks to the 50-game suspension he has to serve for violating baseball's drug policy a second time.
Admire from a distance?
Manny Ramirez has endeared himself to fans over the years with his playful approach to the game, but two drug suspensions later, his reputation with baseball fans is fuzzy.
