Joe Beimel talks to am 570 (8-12-08) Great interview.
Church of McCourt
Alyssa blogs about a way to sign Manny Ramirez for next season. I don’t think it works out. She writes the following….
How about this for an idea on how we can afford Manny next season? For every home game remaining, we should pass around a collection basket at the stadium. You know, like the collection baskets at church. We can call it the “Keep Manny In L.A. Fund.”
Let’s say the Dodgers average 48,000 fans for the remaining 20 home games, and everyone puts $10 into the “Keep Manny In L.A. Fund.” That’s $480,000 a game and $9.6 million total. Add that to the $50 million in other contracts that will come off the books, and you have 59.6 million. That means the McCourts only would have to come up with another $40.4 million to reach the $100 million contract Manny most likely is seeking. Piece of cake.
Well how about this for an idea Alyssa (Nice dreadlocks by the way) let Mr. McCourt pay the salary of Man-Ram. I agree that Manny changes the way Pitchers handle the other hitters. We need Manny. But at what cost ? We don’t know what his motives are. What if he asks for 5 years ? I wouldn’t give it to him. Remember, he is 36 years old. The maximum I would give is a 2 year contract. I see him playing for the New York Yankees in the next few years.
Video Time ! No More = One More ! Nomar does it ! What a win last night !
