What do you mean you're not going to pay me $120 million?

Poor Manny Ramirez...apparently he's so insulted by his lack of suitors and the sole 2-year, $45 million contract that he's been offered that he's considering retiring.

I just don't understand why no one is willing to give in to his agent's demands for a 6- to 8-year contract at $20 million or more per year. After all, who wouldn't want a 36-year old slugger who is only adequate in left field, is so spoiled he pushed a 61-year old man to the ground when his last-minute and excessive ticket request couldn't be honored, who clearly let himself be struck out by Mariano Riviera on 3 pitches in a fit of pique when the Red Sox called his bluff about a leg injury (he couldn't remember which leg was supposed to be hurt, by the way), and who blatantly quit on his teammates in a transparent attempt to get traded so he could try for another monster payday?
