Boras to meet with Manny

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.
