Manny is selling a grill on eBay. I kid you not. This is what the listing says:
Hi, this is Manny Ramirez. I bought this AMAZING grill for about $4,000 and I used it once…But I never have the time to use it because I am always on the road. I would love to sell it and you will get an autographed ball signed by me =} Enjoy it, Manny Ramirez
The current bid as of 10:34 Eastern time is $7,266.00. Red Sox Nation can do better than that! I predict the final highest bid will exceed $20,000.
Hat tip to Baseball Think Factory.
Update (11:05 pm EST): I apparently greatly underestimated RSN. The bid is now $21,400 and rising!
Update (11:12 pm EST): The highest bid is now at a little over $35,000. There is a rumor that Manny is perfectly happy with his grill; that he never wanted to give it away (his agent accidentally put it up for auction) and he is furiously bidding to get it back.
Update (11:17 pm EST): Okay, I’m thinking there is something fishy going on. The highest bid seems to have stabilized at a little over $42,000. "Bidder 38" is the current leader. Again, "38". Hmm. Is Schilling getting in on the action.
Update (11:19 pm EST): God, I should be asleep! I should be watching the Daily Show. What is wrong with me! Okay, last update for the night (only I seem to care anyway) but the bid is now over $50,000. And #38 has been replaced by #50. Good night.
