The mayor wants Manny back.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is throwing his support behind the
Los Angeles Dodgers' bid to re-sign Manny Ramirez.

The slugger has so far rejected three offers from the club,
including the latest that would have made him baseball's
second-highest paid player behind Alex Rodriguez.

"I hope they sign Manny. He was a spark plug, and not just with
his hitting but his attitude," Villaraigosa told The Associated
Press in an interview Monday. "He provided a spark plug for the
team - a winning kind of attitude that was missing and I hope he
does sign on."

Ramirez decided to test his value in the recession-plagued free
agent market and he remains unsigned heading into spring training.
Pitchers and catchers are due to report Saturday to the Dodgers'
new facility in Glendale, Ariz.
