The Dodgers just landed Manny Ramirez -- the Manny Ramirez -- for Andy LaRoche and some obscure minor league pitcher (Bryan Morris).
First reaction as Dodgers fan: shock! I can't believe that Ned Colletti has finally pulled off a good deal for our team. The best part about it: the Red Sox for paying the $7 million remaining on Manny's contract for this year. How could it get any better?!
This is how: the Dodgers did not have to give up any of their young studs like James Loney, Matt Kemp, and Andre Ethier. Go Blue! World Series or bust!
