Manny To Be Manny in LA Thanks To Three Way

In case you’ve been under a rock all afternoon:  Slugger/clubhouse poison eccentric left fielder/future Hall of Famer Manny Ramirez is now a Dodger thanks to a three team deal between The Dodgers, Red Sox and Pirates. Full details of who is going where can be found here.  Not only have the Red Sox sent Manny to the Dodgers, they will be paying the $7 million remaining on his contract.

Dodger fans, say it with me now:  Fuck Yeah! 

Sure Manny will probably run himself out of town eventually but in the short term this is an awesome move. 

I just hope he brings this sweet grill with him:

(I believe Manny actually sold that grill on Ebay but I’m sure Dodger fans will be happy to get him a new one)

  1. Well he should hit lot’s of Homers out of Dodger Stadium. Maybe they can
    steal some of the Angels thunder.

  2. Speaking as a life-long Dodger fan, the most astonishing part of this trade is that the team didn’t really give anything up to get him.

    Now we’ll only miss the playoffs by one game instead of five! Yay!

  3. You’re right Wil, for the cost of Andy LaRoche who they weren’t going to play and a minor league pitcher the Dodgers got a two month free trial of one of the best hitters in the game.

    Don’t sell the team short though when it comes to expectations, they could make the playoffs and lose in the first round just as easily.

    Guarded optimism, it’s the Dodger fan way.
