Tampa Bay Rays slugger Manny Ramirez retired from baseball on Friday afternoon after testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug. It was an abrupt but unsurprising end for one of the most colorful characters in the major leagues over the past decade. Ramirez hit 555 home runs and had 1,831 RBIs in his career, and he was a central figure when the Red Sox ended their 86-year championship drought in 2004. His resume as a player is pretty impressive, but he was twice banned for violating Major League Baseball's substance-abuse policy.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette reportedly told a few members of the media at the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards this evening that he does not view slugger Manny Ramirez as a fit with the team. That meshes with what an industry source told The Baltimore Sun on Friday - that the Orioles as an organization were never close to seriously pursuing Ramirez. It was something that Duquette was vetting, and ultimately he decided not to take it any further. In fact, the source said the Ramirez discussion never got to the point where a proposal was taken to owner Peter Angelos for approval or even serious debate.

The Orioles are reportedly showing interest in Manny Ramirez, at least enough to want to see him swing a bat again. Baltimore was one of two clubs -- the Blue Jays were the other -- to watch Ramirez take batting practice in Miami, according to a report by ESPN Deportes. It had been reported last week that Ramirez was planning to work out for teams this month. Orioles exective vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette wouldn't comment on the team's interest in Ramirez, who abruptly retired in April when he faced a 100-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drugs.

Right-hander Brad Bergesen's arbitration hearing was scheduled for this morning at 9:30. He was looking for $1.2 million, the Oriolescountered with $800,000. I have received no information otherwise -- and I've checked -- so it's assumed the private hearing commenced today. They usually run for several hours, and the three-member panel usually doesn't offer its opinion until the following day. This is the first time the Orioles have gone to a hearing with a player since 2006 with pitcher Rodrigo Lopez.

Leaping catch, high five Peter Schmuck Baltimore Sun This one's too easy. The greatest Manny moment happened right here in Baltimore on May 14, 2008, when he made a spectacular catch to rob former Boston Red Sox teammate Kevin Millar of an extra-base hit and then ran up the left field fence — guess that's why they wear cleats — and high-fived a Red Sox fan in the first row of the bleachers. That would have made it one of the ESPN Web Gems of the year, but Manny wasn't done.

The Orioles maintain some interest in slugger Manny Ramirez and have had internal conversations, but there are plenty of issues that would have to be rectified before the club would make a decision on whether to even offer him a contract. In other words, if it happens at all, it wouldn't happen soon. Ramirez, 39, is hoping to come out of retirement, though he'd have to serve a 50-game suspension for failing a drug test before he could play again in the majors. An ESPN Deportes report said Friday that Ramirez is choosing between the Oakland A's, Toronto Blue Jays and Orioles.

I read the interview with Dan Duquette, the new Orioles executive vice president, in the Sunday Sun ("Q&A with Dan Duquette," Jan. 7). When asked about the "biggest adjustment for you after being away" from baseball for many years, he answered the "speed of the media. " Later in the interview he was asked if the Orioles would like to witness a Manny Ramirez workout as he tries to work his way back into baseball. The answer he came up with is, "Manny's an interesting guy. " Mr. Duquette may have been away from baseball for a number of years, but one thing he hasn't lost is his ability to evade.

The offer the Dodgers made to Manny Ramirez was a brilliant public relations move and could turn out to be a very impactful event. Of course, Ramirez isn't going to accept the reported two-year, $50 million offer that apparently includes an option for a third season. The question is how a pre-emptive $25 million-per-year offer affects the other teams that are expected to be involved. It's just possible that the offer was a poison pill that will make some of those teams back out before open bidding even starts.

Alex Rodriguez has been told by the New York Yankees to keep his cousin away from ballparks. The message was given to the star third baseman yesterday, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press. The message applied to spring training and the regular season, the person said. Speaking at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla., general manager Brian Cashman said only that the matter of Rodriguez being picked up from his spring training opener Wednesday by his cousin "has been handled."
