Dodgers' general manager Ned Colletti claims that he is ready to wait out contract negotiations with free-agent outfielder Manny Ramirez. "This is like watching the San Andreas Fault," Colletti said Thursday. "Some days you can see it move probably, and other days it's going to sit there. And in a week or two it may move a lot. It's a slow process. It speeds up and it slows back down." Ramirez, 36, who came to the Dodgers from Boston at the July 31 trade deadline, batted .396 with 17 home runs and 53 RBIs in 53 games for Los Angeles. "There's not necessarily a deadline with Manny," Colletti said.
