Yeah I bet Andruw Jones and Juan Pierre will be the first guys to greet Manny on his way to Chavez Ravine....

I just hope to run into Manny at a fast food joint. This would be the best star sighting ever and I've seen Gary Coleman limping into the ER.

Any point in asking about the circumstances of that Coleman sighting?

Is this the deal?

Manny to LA

Bay to BOS

"Pittsburgh gets pitcher Craig Hansen and outfielder Brandon Moss, both from Boston, as well as third baseman Andy LaRoche and right-handed pitcher Bryan Morris from the Dodgers." (si.com)

So the Dodgers didn't get rid of either Ethier or Kemp? I would have liked the Dodgers to keep LaRoche and give him more time as a starter, but this looks okay for the Dodgers, at least if they don't raise ticket prices again to pay Manny's salary. Perhaps the Dodgers have to retain an average player age over 35...
I doubt a single team in the league, including the Marlins, use a single dime of ticket sales revenue on players' salary. TV money, buddy. Without TV, no player makes the millions he makes. And that goes for any league in the world, any sport.

If he stops by Krispie Kreme, he'll run into Andruw, but where would he find Pierre? (open for jokes, people...)

I'd love to embellish it, but does it really need it? I was walking out of the ER and Gary Coleman was limping badly into it. I yelled, "Whatcha talkin' bout, Willis?" And he said, "Aw, man, I can't. My leg really hurts." That was it.

Pierre seems like the type to get a mani-pedi. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.p ... =mani-pedi

That's plenty. You weren't afraid to make the Willis call, either. Good stuff.

I'm about to post an avatar, too - you'll appreciate it, Grey.

Us married folk know what a mani-pedi is...

Now, what could we make, following that abbreviation, Manny-?? (taking the place of 'pedi') ?

Hmm... That might work for the post title for Manny's trade post.
