Dodger fans be absolutely thrilled at the prospect of the overgrown, greedy, team quitting, Manny being Manny (translation: Spoiled Star)creep exiting SoCal as quickly as his mystery injuries clear up. The $160 million he has gotten so far in his career, and the $40 million more he would have gotten with the Red Sox is not enough to "secure whats right for his family" (interpret as : Boras needs his cut). He is comically amazing to watch as a hitter, but his lack of team commitment and selfish antics are more than enough to hope he departs quickly. Beside a class organization like L.A., and a class guy like Joe Torre deserve better.
And if he signs with the Yankees or the Mets I bet you'll be at the head of the line to buy a jersey and a Manny wig.

Dilbeck, you hit the nail on the head..........Ramirez was a 'rental', no more, no less.
Move on Ramirez..........it's all about Manny, and his pocketbook..........
And, to say no one player electrified Dodger Stadium like Ramirez???? Give me a break.... A man, and a loyal player, named Wills did that back in the 60's..........I remember, I was there many, many times..........
Ramirez was there to 'showcase'......... he is NOT a Dodger.

I really love the dodgers but the only reason they made it to the NLCS is because of manny! He did everything the dodgers needed to make it to the NLCS so its really a suprise for me for them to acctually have gotten there!

I agree. We not only need to bring Manny back, but
we need to go get a solid hitter to bat behind him, so teams like the Phillies don't pitch around
him like they did.

LA you were used like a cheap whore on sunset. Manny & scott were never going to sign in LA or any NL team. IT's Manny as DH for the next 4 years and that address will be with Hank and the sorry excuse called the Yankees. He's from there, they need him, they can afford him, and in typical yankee fashion they sign guys right on the top of their game with now where to go but down hill. Case in point, this years Yankee team.....either old or rookies who didn't produce..........Don't say we in Boston didn't tell ya so.....because we did. Hey looka t the bright side, at least when you woke up in the morning you can at least say you didn't swallow...right.!.....RIGHT? OMG ......YOU DID SWALLOW !!!!!!!!!
