Man for man: Manuel would welcome Manny to Mets

With or without Manny Ramirez, manager Jerry Manuel thinks his New York Mets are good enough to win next season. He'd love to put Ramirez in the middle of that lineup, though. The free-agent slugger keeps coming up in conversation this winter as he waits and waits for an enticing offer. Mets executives have shown zero interest, but Manuel _ just like the team's anguished fan base _ has already thought about what Ramirez could do for a club coming off consecutive September collapses.
'It's rare that you get that type of talent. I mean, boom! Right in the middle of the lineup type of guy, and right-handed for us, that would be a big bonus,' Manuel said Tuesday.
