So, the Dodgers picked up Manny today. I don't really like Manny very much, but he is a great player and we got him for cheaper than the Lakers got Pau Gasol.
I am not going to allow myself to get too excited though. Lets take look at the last couple guys the Dodgers have picked up that I got excited about: Andrew Jones (I have never liked him, but I let myself get excited) who is hitting a whopping 167 with 2 homeruns and 13 RBI, Jason Schmidt (I think the Giants planted him as sabotage), who has started maybe 2 games in his 2 years he's been with us. Nomar Garcia Para who has played very well but been hurt 80% of the time, and the list goes on. Manny is a great player and should give the power that the Dodgers really need. But I don't like him and I have become accustomed to disapointment.
