Deal sure looks like a web gem
Reaction to Manny Ramirez’s trade to the Dodgers was immediate on latimes.com
Just a stellar move by the Dodgers. I’m stunned! Sure, Manny will be a butcher in the field (though no worse than Pierre) but his Manny-ness might shake up the often listless Dodger chemistry, so that’s a good thing. And he’s going to put up some numbers. I can’t wait to go to the game Sunday!
Manny will be the ring master of the “Manny being Manny” circus. Get ready for a whole lot of thrills, spills, and angst. You’ll love him and hate him all at once. Great hitter but a below average player who doesn’t husltle [sic] or think.
Now I have a reason to go see a Dodger game.
If the Dodgers don’t have a team psychologist, they’d better get one. Fast.
If Manny plays if [sic] left with Pierre in center, the Dodgers may have the worst defensive team in the history of baseball. However, an outfield of Manny-Kemp-Ethier is very good and gives the Dodgers a fighting chance. Ned Colleti [sic] may have actually made a good trade if this is the case.
Will Manny sell tickets? Absolutely. Love him or hate him, Manny adds excitement. And now, everyone will want to see how he reacts to L.A. You can almost feel the excitement in the air. When does his plane arrive?
As a Yankee fan I’m thrilled to see this yankee killer leaving the AL. He may be a nut case but the guy can hit as good as anybody in any league. And he is clutch. Don’t worry about him not playing a full nine innings. You guys leave after the sixth anyway:-)
Part of the compensation for losing to the Celtics in the NBA Finals.
Not being a dodger fan, I hope Ramirez ends up getting the Andruw Jones curse.
