    Good. Manny served his purpose in L.A. (putting butts in seats and making the McCourts a ton of money), but the honeymoon has been over for a long time and L.A. is faltering badly.

    Get rid of him and his remaining salary and start Posednick for the rest of the season. L.A. has some decent talent in Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp and James Loney and pitchers Clayton Kershaw and Chad Billingsley. None of them have the gravitas of Manny, but at this point, Manny was a lesson in diminishing returns.

    Let him go and prepare for a long couple of seasons Dodger fans. This divorce between owners Jamie and Frank is already the largest monetary divorce in California history and will most likely cripple this franchise from making any serious moves in the offseason. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if some of that young talent I was referencing above is auctioned off as well once they become close to arbitration eligible.

    The best thing that can happen is for a judge to demand the sale of the team to someone who wants to spend some time turning the team into the big market power it is supposed to be.

    Who else is half-expecting an Obama presser welcoming Manny to ChiTown (complete with witty puns and covert shots at LeBron)?

    Haha, I think he IS actually on vacation now but even if he's not nice line. :up:

    And I can't say I'm shocked this ended badly for Manny and any team.
