Everybody Loves Manny

It seems as if everybody, especially Los Angeles Dodgers fans, is creaming him or herself over the Dodgers’ acquisition of outfielder Manny Ramirez. True, the slugger is leading the team’s charge toward NL West supremacy. But just wait until he ditches his best behavior and the loose cannon starts firing haymakers at teammates or the people at Chavez Ravine who sport No. 99 gear. Let’s hope the wheels come off when the Dodgers tussle with the Arizona Diamondbacks during a nationally televised match-up.
