Manny Ramirez to Hollywood
Breaking News: Manny Ramirez traded to Dodgers in a 3-team blockbuster. RedSox acquire Jason Bay from the Pirates, and the Pirates get 4 minor leaguers with Andy LaRoche being one of those four. ~WoW, what a steal!! I know we’re only getting Manny for 2+months but RedSox are paying the remainder of $7mil that is owed to Manny. And he declined salary arbitration which means we will get 2 draft picks if he signs with any team in the offseason. Andy LaRoche never panned out to be the top player even though he didnt have enough playing time. I wish him well and good luck in the future~
Our potential lineup:
(Not Bad at all except for the cluster in the OF position. I have a feeling Young will be sent down to get some playing time in 2B so he maybe taking over Kent in the future. Jones and Ethier will probably be in the bench)
So the trade deadline has come and gone and there have been some trades. Lets look at the other trades:
- Reds traded OF Ken Griffey Jr (my all time fav player) to the White Sox for prospects Danny Richar and Nick Masset.
- Mariners traded RP Arthur Rhodes to the Marlins for prospect Gaby Hernandez
- Yankees traded SS Alberto Gonzalez to the Nationals for Jhonny Nunez.
Ethan Martin, the Dodgers’ first-round pick in last month’s First-Year Player Draft, is scheduled to undergo season-ending knee surgery. Martin, a right-handed power pitcher taken with the 15th overall pick out of Stephens County High School in Georgia, suffered the injury during fielding drills. He signed earlier this month for a $1.73 million bonus. ~I hope this doesn’t affect his future playing time and is healed 100%. ~
