Manny Being Manny in Los Angeles

Mike DiMauro@miked31784Senior Writer IAugust 1, 2008

Other than Brett Favre, I know that the other big news item that has been going on was Manny Ramirez. He was finally traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers after making threats to be traded away from the Boston Red Sox. In that trade, the Red Sox gets Jason Bay and the Pirates gets four minor league pitchers, two from each the Red Sox and Dodgers.

I am glad that the Red Sox was able to trade away Manny because he was a distraction, not only this season, but the past few seasons. I was happy, however, that he was able to get his 500th homerun as a Red Sox.

Manny, good luck being Manny in Los Angeles as a Dodger.
