Manny seeing money

November 08, 2008

The more and more the Dodgers ponder whether to re-sign Manny, the more I believe they just have no clue when it comes to dishing out contracts. Just how many Andruw Jones, Juan Pierre or Jason Schmidt jerseys have been sold? Better yet, when has one of these three stooges won us a game? When it comes to Manny Ramirez they aren't only getting a productive player on the field, but they just might be getting back most of their money on ticket, jersey and dreadlock sales.

If Ned Colletti doesn't re-sign Manny, then he should get a job on Wall Street and lose someone else's money.

Ned, Ned, Ned.

Check out the winners in the playoffs over the years and what do you see? Pitching aces; Hamels, Beckett, and lo and behold, Hershiser in 1988. If by signing Manny you lose the Sabathia sweepstakes, the Dodgers go into next year with Kuroda as their ace, and (absent Lowe, Maddux and Penny), a bunch of kids . . . and, guess what? Manny (with contract in hand) ain't gonna bat .400 down the stretch again.

The Dodgers knew Manny was not going to take a deal like they one they offered, yet they still made the offer so that the idiots that clap and cheer at mediocrity year in and year out will think management actually made an effort. What a joke. If we do not sign Manny, the Dodgers will be average again, as they have been for 19 1/2 of the past 20 years.

Come on, Dodgers, besides the money, why not offer Manny something neither New York team could offer: the L.A. lifestyle. While he's a Dodger, give him a beach house in Malibu, season seats next to Jack, and a cameo on "Entourage."
