A DONE DEAL in the NL west! BECAUSE "Manny is being Manny"!

Andrew LimContributor IAugust 11, 2008

This guy surely IS a force to be reckoned with!

I'm actually a hardcore dodgers fan and maybe I'm being too one-sided here. However, the acquisition of Manny just might have been the dodgers' ticket to winning the NL west.

The dodgers needed a force to be reckoned with in the lineup. Jeff Kent was just not that guy anymore. He's past his prime. Although, Manny is now 36, this future hall of famer is still at his old age dominating the league.

The NL west is weak anyways. The Dodgers need to just play a little bit better than 500 and they will win the West.

If Rafael Furcal also finds a way to come back, YOU GUYS BETTER WATCH OUT!
