  • Manny digs his new threads

    LOS ANGELES—Dodgers left-fielder Manny Ramirez, sent to Los Angeles in a three-team trade two weeks ago, said Monday that he "really likes" the Red Sox's new blue-and-white uniforms. "I like it more than the red," Ramirez told reporters following the Dodgers' 8-6 win over the Phillies Monday. "I'm also happy that they shortened the Green Monster, and painted it blue, because that wall was too tall before. And I'm really enjoying the easy schedule we've been playing lately." Although Ramirez admitted he didn't appreciate having "that vampire from the Yankees" [Joe Torre] hanging out in the dugout all the time, he did say that he "completely approves of David Ortiz's new mustache" while gesturing towards Dodgers second baseman Jeff Kent.

    No. It "smells" like the TRUTH! I read a very similar story in The National Enquirer. So put any doubts to rest!

      LA lands Manny in three-team deal
      Dodgers send LaRoche, Morris to Bucs; Bay goes to Boston
      By Ken Gurnick /

      LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers' seemingly futile search for a slugger has finally ended with, of all people, future Hall of Famer Manny Ramirez.
      In the most spectacular in-season acquisition in the 50-year history of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Ramirez was obtained from the Red Sox on Thursday for third baseman Andy LaRoche and former first-round Draft pick pitcher Bryan Morris, who headed to the Pirates. Jason Bay went from Pittsburgh to Boston, and the Pirates received two prospects from the Red Sox.

      Ramirez, a 36-year-old 12-time All-Star and nine-time Silver Slugger, forced Boston to finally deal him in the last week, and he nearly went to the Florida Marlins in a three-team deal with Pittsburgh that would have also brought Bay to the Red Sox.

      But that deal unraveled Thursday and the Dodgers were brought into the talks by the Sox only four hours before the Trade Deadline. Without having to move top young outfielder Matt Kemp, the Dodgers augmented their youthful core with the infusion of a feared offensive presence into the middle of the lineup. Ramirez is expected to be in the lineup Friday night.

      "We're focused on winning the division and going as deep as we can into October," said Dodgers chairman Frank McCourt. "We want to win right here and right now, and that's why we made this trade."

      Ramirez cost nothing financially, as the Red Sox are paying the remaining $7 million of his salary. In exchange for waiving his trade veto rights, the two option years of his contract were voided and he will be eligible for free agency after this season.

      "We have one of the better hitters of his generation coming in," said general manager Ned Colletti. "He's a champion and a winner. We couldn't be happier."

      Ramirez has 20 home runs, 68 RBIs and a .299 average this season. He has 510 career home runs in 15 Major League seasons, one batting title and has led the American League in slugging percentage three times.

      In the process, he's been a longtime nemesis of the Yankees and their former manager, Joe Torre.

      "I did everything I could not to see this guy again, and all of a sudden he's showing up in the uniform I'm wearing, and that's really special -- it really is," said Torre, who's in his first season at the Dodgers' helm.

      Over the last five seasons, the only defensive position Ramirez has played is left field, which will leave Torre with an outfield crowd of Ramirez, Kemp, Juan Pierre, Andruw Jones and Andre Ethier. Because Ramirez could be gone by the winter, Colletti said he is in no hurry to trade any of them.

      "This just came together and we're...

      Don't hear or read much about the Dodgers here in the northeast. What's going on with the team. What will the starting team look like and the starting rotation? What do the fans think of the Joe Torre hiring?

      Thanks in advance

      3-2 so far having beaten the dreaded SF Giants the last 2 games in SF. Dodgers are looking good so far especially considering they haven't started hitting yet.

      This could be the Year?

      Blue And Gold Dahlia
      by dgr828
      60 years ago THE "BLACK DAHLIA" AKA Elizabeth Short was brutally murdered and dismembered in Los Angeles, California, January 15, 1947.
      The Los Angeles Rams had just wrapped up their 1st year in the city with a (6-4-1) record.
      Elizabeth Short's body was found cut in half, in the Crenshaw district of Los Angeles, on the 3800 block of Norton Ave., between 39th street and Coliseum Street.
      Coliseum Street leads directly to the actual Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where the Los Angeles Rams played their home games. The distance from the crime scene to the stadium is roughly a 5 minute drive. The "Black Dahlia" case has yet to be solved. (COINCIDENCE?)

      70 years ago the Cleveland Rams began their 1st year in the National Football League, in the midst of the infamous "Torso Murders", in the same fashion as the "Black Dahlia" case, 13 bodies were found either dismembered or beheaded in the Cleveland area by an apparent serial killer between 1935 and 1938.
      The famed 'Untouchable' Eliott Ness headed the investigation into these murders with no luck in solving the cases.
      The Cleveland Rams finished that 1st season with a dismal (1-10-0) record.
      The Rams played their home games at Cleveland's Municipal Stadium; however, the next season in 1938, the team played their home games at Shaw Stadium, which was basically a high school field, only to return to Municipal Stadium the following year in 1939. (COINIDENCE?)

      In 1994 The Los Angeles Rams Began their final season in the city, shortly after the brutal murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman on June 12, 1994.
      The Rams finished the season with a (4-12-0) record, capping 49 year history in the city with a 24-21 loss to the Washington Redskins at Anaheim Stadium in front of only 33,000 diehard Ram fans.
      The Brown Simpson/ Goldman case is still unsolved. (COINCIDENCE?)

      No coincidences to report from the Rams new home in Saint Louis, but as History tends to repeat itself, it would be in everyones best interest, as far as the Rams are concern....toWATCH YOUR BACKS!!!
