Poor Manny, Nobody Wants to Sign Him :(

It wasn’t long ago that Manny dropped one of the best lines by an athlete in recent memory. In October of last year, while Manny was crushing NL pitching, my stock portfolio was riding high, and gas was $4 a gallon, Manny proclaimed, “I want to see who is the highest bidder. Gas is up…Read More

Don’t Buy Dodgers’ P.R. Spin on Manny

I love the way the Dodgers are trying to play this whole Manny Ramirez free agent negotiation. It’s going down exactly as I expected. Anyone who follows the Dodgers knows that Frank McCourt can’t afford to pay Manny the type of money he wants and probably deserves. At the same time, Manny is ridiculously popular…Read More

McCourt Goes Parcells on Manny, Calls Him ‘The Player’?

Surfing through what was otherwise a fairly boring T.J. Simers column, I came to one note that stood out in particular. According to Simers, Dodgers owner Frank McCourt was referring to Manny Ramirez in an interview with Mason and Ireland on 710 ESPN in Los Angeles as “the player.” Simers made a crack about McCourt…Read More

Manny Ramirez Serves as Angel Berroa’s Translator in Post Game Interview

Angel Berroa homered on Wednesday night, his first since ’06. Even though he’s mostly a Spanish speaker, he was interviewed on FSN after the Dodgers’ win. One caveat however: he had Manny Ramirez — the two instantly became friends when Manny arrived in LA — translate the interview for him. As you could imagine, pure…Read More

Nice to See Manny’s Head Is in the Game

Amongst the many knocks on Manny Ramirez are his lack of focus and his lack of effort on defense. I don’t think there’s a better example of these shortcomings than what Manny did in his Dodgers debut on Friday night against Arizona. It was the top of the third, and Randy Johnson led off the…Read More

Dodgers Finally Have a Real Superstar

So a few days ago it was a great day to be an Angels fan (and it’s still a great time to be one too, with plenty of room left on the bandwagon), but of course now it has become a great time to be a Dodgers fan as well. Despite tossing away $100 million…Read More

Could Manny Wind Up a Yankee?

For some reason all the talk out of Boston over the weekend revolved around Manny. I guess it sort of started when he pushed the traveling secretary for the team and had the matter “handled internally” by the organization. Since then, he has missed games because of his knee and even pulled himself out of…Read More

There’s Nobody Like Manny

He is just one of those once-in-a-generation players that we are lucky to have playing while we’re all fans. There’s nobody like him, and there probably won’t be anyone similar to him at any point in the future. From pointing to the ball to tell his teammate to get a gapper, to using the bathroom…Read More
