MANNY RAMIREZ: That’s Why He Gets the BIG Bucks

manny ramirezJust in case you were wondering if the Dodgers made the right choice after signing Manny to a 2 year $45 million contract AND were doubting if he was worth it after the “illegal” substance scandal…fear no more.  Manuel Ramirez is for Real.  Ask the Cincinnati Reds who on Wednesday, in a bases loaded situation, got f@#$-ed when the Dodgers decided to pinch hit with, that’s right, Manny Ramirez. The same Manny who was taking the day off after injuring his wrist yesterday. We all know how this one ends: bases juiced, call in pinch hitter Manny, first pitch, see ya lata!  Grand Salami by Ramirez.  In the dog days of summer, when there’s nothing to watch on TV other than baseball and well, nothing, it’s nice to see that the Dodgers are in first and are keeping me from dozing off until the start of college football.  Now I know why everyone in Boston loved this guy.  I remember him flipping his bat and marveling at his homers against my beloved Angels. OOOOOOOHHH, that bugged me.  But now that he’s on the west coast, he rocks!!! Call me fairweather, bandwagon, or whatever, but this guy is someone you love to cheer for.  Sure he took some type of performance enhancing substance but who cares? He’s a loveable lug (in a very heterosexual kind of way).  He makes the fans love him.  Not like jerkoffs like Barry Bonds who think they’re above the law. Thank god for dreadlocks, Mannywood, Manny bobbleheads, and most of all Manny.  GO DODGERS!!!

  1. You’re absolutely right. One AB and he makes it count in the biggest way; a grand salami!

    Manny Ramirez is worth the money, but can he stay on the field for the rest of the year?
