HEY KIDS ~

Spring training is just 3 weeks away for my boys. Playing in a new location other than DODGERTOWN. Our boy MANNY is still un-signed with an offer for $45 million guaranteed for 2 years...chump change for him I guess. We have lost Lowe and Penny, Kent has retired, our best left-hander reliever Beimel is a free agent. But we did dump Andruw Jones and will pay him for life each year more than I will earn in my entire life and we did sign that awesome 218 avg. 3 HR hitter last year Brad Ausmus and another druggie we used to have G. Mota and are looking to sign another loser we dumped last year, Randy Wolf.

How are things in your park going?

I'm counting down the days till Spring training... 2 weeks from today for P/C... Thank goodness the Red Sox finally re-signed Jason Varitek (catcher)... He's is the 'glue'... amazing with rookie pitchers and studying every aspect of the game... I feel pretty secure with the roster so far...

Gary where did Derek Lowe go ? I suppose I could look at the site.. Poor Manny, nobody wants him eh'... are you guys stuck with him ? Was it worth it last season ??

Thumbs up Yay for Varitek

Yep, it's good to have Jason Varitek on board.

Making reservations at the Ritz so that SweetCaroline and I can host Gary for the World Series this year.

Woo-Hoo I was so glad to see this thread, not much longer to go.

So Gary did you hear that Albert Pujols put out word that he would like Manny to play for the Cardinals. He talks to him apparently on the phone
The powers that be here have already said they have no interest in signing him. They are really cheap with our money.

Let me think what have we done this off season? Not much of anything. They signed Greene and of course Ring.

We've lost Springer , Miles , Looper and a bunch of other people that I was glad to see go.

SWEET-C Lowe went to the Braves and finally married the reporter he left his wife for. It was well worth it to have MANNY with us last year....would never have made the play-offs without him. We are not stuck with him, his contract is over (actually the DODGERS didn't pay him anything...just lost a player in the 3-way trade) they have made an offer that is very good...but only for 2 years.

BILL yes...we can discuss baseball before the Super Bowl is over as long as it's under the table.

BIG BIRD ~ Word around here is that nobody is coming close to giving MANNY what he wants. We have the only legit offer on the table right now from what appears to be "truth"...one just never knows!

I'm not sure what my Tigers are gonna do this year. Seems like every prediction is proved wrong within the first few weeks...hopefully they'll gel a little bit better this year.

Haven't heard a lot from the Rockies (but I haven't been looking for the news yet... seems like football needs to be completed before moving on.).
We signed Jimenez to a few more years, so that's a good thing!
I'll miss Matt Holliday, though.

Thumbs down No Manny In Dodgers Uniform

Gary - Just read this on the web, supposedly from the Los Angeles Times:

Quote:
By Tony Jackson on February 3, 2009 12:48 AM

I have no other details, other than that Scott met with Ned Colletti late tonight and told him Manny wouldn't accept the Dodgers' one-year, $25 million offer. Not sure exactly what this means, but it wouldn't shock me if this is the end of it and the Dodgers simply move on. And if that happens, who knows where Manny will end up and when he will get there? More on this tomorrow, I'm sure.

So, are your guys now going to offer him real money?

One year.... $25 million.... unacceptable.....

Hey Manny, explain your logic to all of the people across the country who have lost their jobs. I guess the economy doesn't affect everyone quite the same.

I think he's not accepting the deal because he's waiting for another team to want him. It's a shift to win all the time on the Red Sox then go to the Dodgers, who aren't as consistent.

So we dump Brad Penny ~ Derek Lowe ~ Chan Ho Park ~ Joe Beimel and Takashi Saito

then yesterday we sign Randy Wolf ...WHO WE DUMPED LAST YEAR! for

a guaranteed 5 million and a chance to earn 8 million...

makes a lot of sense since he went 12-12 with an era of forever last year

guess it was just a reward since he went 9-6 with an era of almost 5 when he pitched here last.

I just don't get it...I really don't

We dumped Adam Kennedy

Just one thing who's on 2nd? So far we have traded Miles and Lopez both played 2nd base. Should be an interesting spring training.
