Manny Being Manny and Dodgers Being Dodgers as They Blow it Again

Sam RobinsonCorrespondent IAugust 10, 2008

I thought for a second I was watching a highlight from the night before.

Once again the Dodgers got a clutch hit to propel them into the lead, this time off the hot bat of Manny Ramirez, and once again I watched in utter dismay as the lowly San Francisco Giants rallied once again in walk off fashion, this time to a 5-4 victory.

My concern was in the way the final play occurred. A grounder was hit right at Kuo, who, like a stoned fat kid, stumbled and stammered in his attempt to field what wasn't a relatively hard ball to field and he ultimately let's it go through his legs. To make matters worse, Angel Berroa flubs the slowly moving ball and just like that, the Dodgers blow it once more.

The Dodgers finally take a step in the right direction by acquiring Manny Ramirez, only to take two steps backwards these past two games. While I hope Manny continues being Manny for years to come in Dodger Blue, I hope for my television's sake that the Dodgers don't pull another stunt like this again; otherwise my fist might go through it this time.

Oh, and anyone...feel free to go Nancy Kerrigan all over Andruw Jones so his b-s salary can go towards resigning Manny.
