The White Sox have been awarded the claim on Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez after no National League team claimed him and the other two teams that put a claim on him - Tampa Bay and Texas, according to sources - had higher winning percentages. But the Sox are still a few steps from calling Manny one of their own. The Dodgers don't necessarily have to work out a trade for Manny with the Sox and Manny has his own no-trade clause he can enforce to stay in L.A. Or the Dodgers just simply decide to keep Manny. The deadline for the Sox to work out a trade is 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon.
