Agent Scott Boras said today he will meet with Manny Ramirez to discuss the slugger's future while the Red Sox play the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim, Calif.
"We'll have a discussion about Manny's future," Boras said by phone.
The Red Sox have until Nov. 9 to pick up the 2009 option on Ramirez's deal. Boras has indicated in the past he believes Ramirez can play into his 40s and would like to see the slugger with a long-term deal.
Boras would not comment on reports of a six-figure fine levied against Ramirez for his incident with traveling secretary Jack McCormick, but a source close to the situation indicated it was "hogwash."
Boras would not comment on whether there was a fine of any kind, but the Globe's Gordon Edes through industry sources, has reported the fine was in the $10-$15,000 range with the money going to a charity.
