I want to see Manny-Kemp-Ethier. I like Pierre as a pinch runner, and maybe they can move Jones to like director of food and beverage services at the stadium, or something.

Kemp-Pierre-Manny


wha? that's insane because anything hit to center or right will be a double or triple easily

In a perfect world i'd put Manny in LF, Kemp in Center and Ethier in Right

Pierre and Andruw Jones should be shipped off to any takers in the offseason, they're both deadweight

I would say he's somewhat overrated in the sense that he's wussed out on several potential opponents like Cotto & Margorito to name a few & possibly for the DLH rematch & Manny rumors as well.

He says that he's the best pound for pound boxer in the world and that he can beat anybody, well prove it. Quit backing down. If you're competitive, you do it more for the competition than the money, for personal pride.

next year bills will win 19 and kuroda 15 and we will sign sabbathia, as another ned colleti desperation move, so we will have the best pitching staff next year, and kemp and loney will emegerge as great player, i gove DeWitt one more season to devolop as a good player eithier will hit 30 homers kemp will hit25, and loney hit 21

Manny's press conference was soooo awesome. I was wanting for him to talk a lot of Spanish and expecting it with all the Latin media here & he did not disappoint AT ALL. He was hilarious. Manny being Manny in Spanish too.. haha. I loved when he said he loves Mexican food & when he joked about doing his own novela (soap opera).. also when he hugged Guillermo from Jimmy Kimmel, that was pretty cool.. Awesome guy.. I ALWAYS hated the Red Sox, but I always liked Manny & David.

Is it confirmet yet whether or not Manny will be getting a haircut? I'd rather him keep it. It fits his personality more & makes him more entertaining, but I wouldn't be surprised if he did.

Hahaha, Dodgers still cant produce any offense with Manny. It is just one game, but it got to be disappointing.

First Game w/ Team:
Bay hits the game winner RBI for Boston in the 13th inning.
Griffey goes 2-3 with a 2 RBI single.
Manny finishes a possible game-winning at bat with a double play out.

Smooth...
I need to finish my summer homework. DAMMMMMNNNN

Nomar needs to come back.. obviously injuries are always a problem for him, but when he's healthy, he's definitely one of the more effective bats by far..

also disappointed Andruw Jones continues to play and Joe didn't find a way to play Ethier instead.

I think it's the money talking. Coletti still sees something in him. I have a hard time believing Joe hasn't tried to pull him out of the line-up.
