Absurd Dodgers Rumors

Despite Ned Colletti's inability to ever make a worthwhile trade, the New York Post claims that the Dodgers are the most likely team to acquire Manny Ramirez.  A Ramirez trade would be centered around either Matt Kemp or Andre Ethier and the Red Sox would pay almost all of Manny's remaining 2008 salary.  If the Red Sox can trade Manny, they will make a hard run at Mark Teixeira.

The Post also claims that the Dodgers may instead try to acquire Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts.  This would leave shortstop completely unresolved and push Jeff Kent to a utility role. It might be time to stop using that publication as a source.
