Manny has signed with the Dodgers for 2 years 45 mill.

And in other news, one of the guys in the hunt for our starting 2nd base job looks like he's about 12 years old. So we'll see how that works out.

Good call! He didn't turn it down. I'm glad Manny stayed put in the NL West.

i'd just like to state that manny is no longer a free agent.

i'd also like to state that the only reason why manny isn't a met right now is bernie madoff.

fucking ponzi schemes :shakesangryfist:

Or maybe it's the fact that he's a total ass clown.

ETA: Actually no, on second thought that probably increased his chances of joining the Mets. He'd fit right in.

Well, America's favorite whipping boy (A-Rod) will be out 6-8 weeks due to surgery to remove a cyst.

According to Newsday, its 6-8 weeks.

But, I saw over at Yahoo that it could possibly be 10. Either way, it sucks. He's one of the Yanks best players.

Remove a cyst is code for "allow steroids and HGH to exit the system before getting detected by MLB".

It makes no sense to me when people tell me I should support Toronto teams because they are my "local" team (this goes for the Jays and Raptors). Halifax and Toronto are as far apart as New Jersey and Chicago.

If anything, Boston teams are my "local" teams, and you would have to hold a butterfly knife to my ball sack before I would support the Patriots, Bruins, or Red Sox.

Of course they're that far away, most of Canada contains absolutely nothing. That's why Canada fails, and is going to get its ass invaded.

No one cares about Canada. Canadians don't even care about Canada. That's why they spend so much time talking about America.

So we can thus deduce that you are a Celtics fan.
