Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez might have won two World Series rings and possibly paved his way to the Hall of Fame during his 7½ years in Boston, but Thursday he said he was miserable living in Red Sox Nation.

"Hey, sometimes you're better off to have a two-year deal in a place you're going to be happy," Ramirez said, "than to have an eight-year deal in a place you're going to suffer."

Ramirez, hoping to obtain at least a four-year contract, settled for a two-year, $45 million deal with the Dodgers. The figure represents a raise on the $40 million that remained on the two option years of his original Red Sox deal.

He will be paid $25 million this season with a $20 million player option in 2010, but considering $25 million of the deal is deferred with no interest, the total package is worth about $41 million, the Dodgers say.
