Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com highlighted a report from Impacto Deportivo, a Dominican newspaper, which indicated that the Yankees and Manny Ramirez were close on a 3 year deal worth $75 million dollars.

Cashman denied the report and the paper persisted. Dierkes notes that the paper has a decent, though not spotless, record of MLB related scoops, so you never know. But, at this time, I'll take it as an unreliable report.
