It’s Manny Time!

Me, from yesterday…

If anything, it’s been the Dodgers who have made notable deadline deals over the past 4-5 years.  From 2004’s Penny and Finley deals to getting Maddux and Lugo in 2006,

… to 2008′s Manny Ramirez deal.

According to SI, and now Frank McCourt during the WBC Conference, the Dodgers have traded for Manny Ramirez.  The deal involves a three way between the Dodgers, Pirates, and Red Sox.  The Dodgers will send Andy LaRoche and pitcher Bryan Morris to Pittsburgh, while Jason Bay heads to Boston for Brandon Moss and Craig Hansen.

Analysis coming later!
