Manny Ramirez will play for Los Angeles Dodgers in 2010

In a move which I hardly find shocking, Manny Ramirez exercised his $20 million contract option for 2010. His agent Scott Boras informed Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti of the decision, which Ramirez had until this month to make.

Manny could have exercised an out clause in the two-year, $45 million deal he signed in March, but you know, he caught doing steroids so probably better to just take the $20 million remaining on the table.

Of course, I'm not sure how good this is for the Dodgers. They've spent two years getting pounded by the Phillies in the NLCS, and Manny seemingly does whatever the hell he wants - like take a shower while Jimmy Rollins is beating the Dodgers with a 9th inning double. Plus, it's pretty clear the Manny off the juice is not the same Manny on the juice.

But whatever, Dodgers fans. Manny being is Manny is back for another year, whether you like it or not.
