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.
