Little interest in Manny

July, 29, 2008
A Phillies official told Tuesday night persistent reports that Philadelphia is pursuing Manny Ramirez are "false" and said the Phillies have "nothing doing" with the Red Sox involving Ramirez or any other player.

Meanwhile, a baseball man who speaks regularly with the Dodgers' front office said that the team also has no interest in trading for Ramirez, despite reports to the contrary.

The two other teams linked to Ramirez, the Mets and Diamondbacks, had previously denied interest. So while the Red Sox continue to float Ramirez's name around baseball, there were no indications Tuesday that they're making any significant headway.
