It's official!!! Manny to the Dodgers!!!

Any baseball fans out there?

The Dodgers acquired Manny Ramirez from the Red Sox in a 3 team trade. Who got the best deal in this trade? Being a huge Dodge fan....I'm stoked. Hopefully we can get at least 2 good years from Manny. The Red Sox got Jason Bay...sounds to me like they really wanted Manny out of there.

Re: It's official!!! Manny to the Dodgers!!!

I'm a huge Dodger fan and season ticket holder, I would rate this trade a C. ManRam is only a 2 month rental, he is a free agent in the off-season looking for a mega contract that I don't think the Dodgers will be in the hunt for. We gave up Laroche who is our 3rd basemen of the future and highly regarded prospect.

The only reason you would want to rent Manny now is if you think adding him will instantly make you a W.S. contender, which I don't think it has for the Dodgers.

Being too laid back is what gets Manny in trouble though :P

Very good points.

But we still have Dewitt (whom I think is better than Larouche). Boston is still paying Manny's remaining salary for the year. The rest of the teams in our division suck...which means we have a better chance for the playoffs. The dodgers have a lot of money to spend (as I'm sure you know everytime you buy something at dodgers stadium, it's expensive)...maybe the dodgers will sign him?

I believe the trade line ended already...and the Dodgers are not getting rid of Kemp, Either, or Pierre. They'll just rotate them.

They should've picked up a shortstop though.

Re: It's official!!! Manny to the Dodgers!!!

Yea, there are some good things that can happen this off-season, Dodgers have I think like $50 million coming off the books so we could make a run at resigning Manny or some other bigtime player. With Laroche gone now I think we'll either look at resigning Casey Blake to play 3rd and use Dewitt at second base since Ken tis done after this year, Dewitt was signed as a 2nd baseman originally.

Also, if we don't resign Manny, we still have Ethier & Kemp in the outfield.
