Manny Ramirez


Manny.jpgManny Ramirez has electrified Los Angeles.


The city was in a lul, and he came in at trade deadline packing not just 500+ career home runs and just long hair, but with enthusiasm and self confidence.


He has energized the fans.


He has energized the front office.  And most importantly, he has energized his new teammates.  He plays the game the way it supposed to be played, with enthusiasm, self confidence, hustle and desire.


He runs hard, he hits the ball hard and he has fun.


The important thing to remember though is those things are contagious in the clubhouse.  We enter play today 3.5 games up in the NL West.  There’s not doubt Manny’s contributions have helped us get to where we are, and I hope for the sake of Dodger fans everywhere that his contributions lead us to the Fall Classic
