Old No. 99

October 24, 2009

Manny Ramirez -- Miss October.

Ronald Levine

Van Nuys

::

We had been warned by his past teams, fans and players. But much like a new lover, we overlooked Manny's self-centered attitude. The honeymoon was great, Manny, but we caught you cheating and our relationship has never been the same since. Manny, we want a divorce!

Ron Roberts

Encino

::

Plaschke, you got it wrong again, what a surprise! If Joe Torre wanted Manny in the dugout for the entire game Manny would be in the dugout for the entire game. Plus, what exactly do you think Manny could have added to the bottom of the ninth inning that would have changed Broxton's putting two men on and grooving a fastball right into Jimmy Rollins' wheelhouse?

Wallace Thomas

Woodland Hills

::

Manny can sure hammer 82-mph changeups, but he is absolutely futile against fastballs on the inner half of the plate. Heat on the hands is making the non-roided Manny age faster than Joe Hardy in "Damn Yankees."

Jeff Green

Long Beach

::

The best we can say about having Manny on the Dodgers in 2009 was, boy, was it exciting having him on the Dodgers in 2008.

Mel Powell

Sherman Oaks

::

I think Manny just wanted to make sure he was out of the building by the time Rick Neuheisel grabbed a microphone to tell the Dodgers fans still at Citizens Bank Park that if they came back for Game 5 they'd see a much better game.
