Torre & Colletti rockin' out to The Boss?! Really? I always thought they were more fans of Night Ranger or something else as lame.
Who led the "Beat LA" chants? Clarence Clemons?! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ah... another season down the toilet.....

The Dodgers are going to continue with losing seasons like this until they learn how to hit a baseball...if they would stop swinging for the fences and concentrate on base hits out of the infield, they would be a winning team.

As for Manny, he is a drag on the team. Whether it's the 'roids or what, he simply doesn't hustle on the field, or while running the bases. The mistake was in relegating Juan Pierre to pinch hitting, and filling in when poor little Manny gets tired. Manny should be the pinch hitter, and Pierre should be playing all the least Pierre knows how to hustle.

It's too bad the Dodgers can't seam to figure out how to get hits and bring in runs when players are on base. They have to lead the majors with leaving runners in scoring position, and hitting into double plays. As good a third baseman as Casey Blake is, his batting in clutch moments sucks! Waiting to capitalize on the opposing teams mistakes is apparently the only type of baseball the Dodgers know, and is not a formula for winning games and going on the offensive.

All you people who are dissin the dodgers should stop. At least the dodgers made it to the NLCS. Plus they swept the Cardinals. Los Angeles played great this year. Sure we hit a few bumbs in the road but we made it through. And as for Manny's suspension it made the dodgers grow as a team and made the young players realize that they had to step up so i think the suspension wasnt really that bad. GO DODGERS !!! we'll get the world series next year!

I have tried to support Manny but this shower thing is unacceptable. Doing it during the regular season is one thing, but during the 9th in the playoffs no way!! I stay up watching my Dodgers to the end win or lose. Plus his his lazy demeanor with 2 strikes and not producing when we needed it. Manny please opt out of your contract so we can invest in solid pitching and good luck to you. We have a strong proven nucleus that will eventually get us to the Fall Classic and we will be there soon!!! Thanks Dodgers for an exciting season.
