Great deal for the Blue Crew. Only giving up LaRoche and a minor leaguer? I thought we would at least give up Ethier or Kemp, but Im thankful we didnt. Now lets go get the division boys, and do some damage in the playoffs :beers:

I guess they can't have the Angels have ALL the baseball news in the Southland. It is always nice to see L.A. take something away from THAT CITY.

He's still batting near .300 and is on pace for over 100rbis.

I'm gonna' have to eat my words now. Hallelujah, the Dodgers WILL finally get out of the first round and could be pretty dangerous. This is a dream come true. Manny will be loved big time in LA. The people will go crazy.

Bandwagoners are always good for business though. You won't hear the front office or organization complaining. It's all about that money baby. More people, more attention, more pub, more money.

I might, been a long time dodger fan, prob as long as a laker fan, so this is great news. Might have to rock one.
