Manny Ramirez's on-again, off-again relationship with Boston management seems like it's off again. Speculation in Boston is if Matt Holliday becomes available the Red Sox might let Ramirez walk and take a run at Holliday. Ramirez, 36, is represented by Scott Boras, who thinks Manny can play until he's 40, and will likely seek a four-year contract for his client, should Boston not bring him back.

The summer-long soap opera starring Terry Glenn and the Cowboys could end soon. On Monday, coach Wade Phillips said he's hopeful a peaceful resolution can occur by Friday, the day the team has its first training camp practice in Oxnard, Calif. The Cowboys want the veteran receiver to sign an injury waiver that would give him $500,000 if he re-injures his right knee. The team has told him he can't practice with the team without the waiver. But Glenn, coming off two surgeries to his right knee before last season, is scheduled to make $1.74 million this season. He said he doesn't want to sign the waiver because he deems it unfair. Team officials have told Glenn and his agent, James Gould, that he will be released if he doesn't sign the waiver. Glenn told the team to release him, then backed off. Now, with training camp approaching, it appears the sides will talk again this week in an attempt to solve their problems.(Dallas Morning News) Comment
