most of the dodger fans anyways are uneducated gangster drugdealing single moms and their likeminded gangster children, and all their babys daddys and their gangster homies and their babys mammas, all dressed in blue and white but all trying to wear their clothes in a different homeboy way, all hanging out of either their beat up cars or escalades with 47inch rims...............
thats the energy they put out in their collective conscience, and so it is NOT SPECIAL OR SURPRISING that this is the garbage pit player they have attracted. THEY ASKED FOR IT AND ATTRACTED IT. AND CELEBRATED IT. ramirez is so amped up he cant put a sentence together, and now, he's got a lot more time to hit the pipe.

What a DUMB A$$!!! Has he not been watching the news??? Does he not know what is going on??? He is a sought-after player who is banking. Why would you do that??? I am so tired of these a-holes. Play like a man...a REAL, NATURAL man. Or don't play at all! Hank Aaron didn't need them. Nolan Ryan didn't need them, and he was throwing 100+ fastballs. He could school these kids today.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! I pay to watch normal men play, not machines.

Yeah they are winning now, But that is only because if Manny is Cheating then most likely there are others that are Cheating as well.

Dodger Girl it is a long season and without Manny out for just under half the season, Good Luck, Dodgers will FALL HARD.

This is the guy who makes $23,854,494. Second only to the highest paid baseball player, A-Rod who makes $33,000,000

Oh, no. Not Manny. He was the pudgy guy with the quirky personality that got by on obnoxiousness and raw talent. Not roids. Los Dodgers are finished. Their respect is gone. Pretty soon their numbers in the W column will be too. Looks like the curse of the traded star catchers, Piazza and LoDuca, remains intact.Too bad.

#9 - How racist is that comment. I have been a Dodger fan for over 25 years, and I would like to tell you that I am not an "uneducated gangster drugdealing single moms and their likeminded gangster children, and all their babys daddys and their gangster homies and their babys mammas, all dressed in blue and white but all trying to wear their clothes in a different homeboy way, all hanging out of either their beat up cars or escalades with 47inch rims..............." I think you yourself need to re-read what you wrote because you seem very uneducated yourself. I am a very intelligent woman married to the same man I have a child with, and live in a very nice house. So I think you need to shut your mouth, you racist a-hole. As far as Manny is concerned he screwed up, they will over come it, because the Dodgers have some really great players this year.
