Hey Los Angeles Dodgers! Here's Manny Ramirez!

Dear Los Angeles Dodgers,

Wait til you get a load of your new left fielder.  He can smash a baseball and will make you a heck of a deal if you're looking for a grill on Ebay.  That's the good news.

There is a little downside.  The Boston Red Sox PAID to get rid of this defensive liability.  He's been known to cut off throws from the outfield, a mere 10 yards or so from the warning track.  He bitches a lot about not being treated well.  His effort running out at bats to first base has been questioned, and might have been the final straw for Boston.  It takes him what seems like a day to get down the line, but that's just "Manny Being Manny". 

Get used to that term.  Say it with me.  "It's just Manny being Manny."

I wish you all well.  I'm a die hard Yankee fan.  I love Joe Torre.  I feel sorry for him now.  I hope this trade does not turn out to be the disaster it appears to be.  My thoughts were that Manny should go to an AL team and DH where he wouldn't be such a clown.  But, that's not the case.  You're stuck with him.  To quote Manny, "The Boston Red Sox do not deserve a player like me".

Say it with me.  "It's just Manny being Manny."
