Manny

We welcome Manny Ramirez to the Los Angeles Dodgers. 

We are very happy to have him here.  He is one the of the top batters in Major League Baseball, and he very well could go down as one of the top 10 batters in the history of the game.

He is a 12-time All-Star.

He is an 11-time Silver Slugger Award winner.

He ranks 23rd on the all-time home run list with 510 HRs.

He is the type of player that gives us the extra power in the lineup that we feel will propel us into the post season.

We have a tremendous nucleus of players, and with Manny in the middle of our lineup, we feel we will be playing baseball in October.

Congratulations to Frank McCourt, Ned Colletti and the Baseball Operations staff who pulled this deal off.

And most importantly, to the fans, enjoy watching this player wearing Dodger Blue.  I know I will.

Tommy-
This Manny trade is now apart of Dodger history. I look forward to the excitement and talent that he will bring to our current team. Hopefully, the younger guys can learn a lot from Manny, like Joe said “Hitting is Contagious”.

I also wanted to tell you ‘thank you’ for being so kind. My father and I were able to meet you on Tuesday night in the Dug Out club. For long time Dodger fans, it was a night we will always remember.

GO DODGERS! The division is ours!

Tommy,
This could be the MAN, we’ve been waiting for –for years.
I think, if we don’t sign him to a contract, no matter the size, we will regret it.
Juan Pierre(no relation) and Andruw Jones were terrible mistakes and now even more so.
I don’t know if you agree or not but I would like to see them go elsewhere, if it is ever possible.
homegrown Matt Kemp belongs in CF and Andre Ethier in RF.
It looks like Kemp has made it but I think Ethier is too good to be a reserve player.
Regardless as it is we got a good shot at the Division title and with Manny Ramirez, who knows how far we can go?

I doubt the Dodgers will be able to move Jones or Pierre, but they are not bad 4th and 5th outfielders. I just feel bad for Delwyn Young. He’s a very good talented young player who really needs an opportunity.

I would like to see D.Y. get a chance with another organization, he seems way out of the picture here.
But I would hate to see Ethier go, he’s been quite a fixture here in the past 2 1/2 years.

hey coach,
do u think that the dodgers are interested in keeping manny ramirez for a good sized contract or a possible trade token? Going to the topic of trading, there are a lot of rumors on espn that c.c. sabathia and roy halladay want to come to chavez ravine; if there is a trade, then should the dodgers try to get these players or a young run producer like manny?

as for the d.y. fans, he will be a great starter next year and the coming years for the dodgers, but the main thing to focus on is the dodgers’ 08 hopes of postseason victories coming from talented veterans.

SO YOU ARE HAPPY TO HAVE MANNY THE QUITER IN LA? WELL ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT LA MUST HAVE MAGICAL POWERS,IT MAY BE IN HE AIR OR WATER,BECAUSE IT IS GREAT THAT HIS KNEE AND CRONIC HAMSRTING HAVE FULLY HEALED. WHEN IN BOSTON HE COULD NOT MAKE IT DOWN THE FIRST BASE LINE TO RUN OUT A GROUND BALL. HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASHAMED TO CASH HIS PAYCHECK. JACK FROM BOSTON.
