Manny Ramirez Going To LA Dodgers; Jason Bay To Boston

It’s official, Manny Ramirez is no longer on the Boston Red Sox. One of the most notable and best players the Red Sox have ever seen is going to the LA Dodgers in a three way trade with the Pirates.

Pittsburgh gave up Bay and wound up with four young players. The deal was completed just before the 4 p.m. EDT deadline for making trades without waivers.

As of early Thursday, it appeared Ramirez might be on his way to the Florida Marlins. But when those talks fizzled, the Red Sox and Pirates found a willing third partner in the Dodgers.

“When a player like Manny becomes available, I don’t think there’s a manager in baseball who wouldn’t say they’re interested,” said Dodgers skipper Joe Torre, whose Yankees teams went toe-to-toe with Ramirez for years. “It was something that happened very quickly, obviously.” – source

Manny was a icon in Boston for the last 7 years, but after some of his comments and actions recently, I am glad the Red Sox traded him. Don’t get me wrong, I thought he was awesome, the Red Sox need a player who don’t cause so many problems. Sox are trying to win back-to-back World Series and Manny brings too many distractions.

I wish him the best of luck in LA, but PEACE!
