WOW!! I guess Manny's hammy is all better.....funny how that worked out.......anyway......RED SOX NATION is rooting for the Dodgers to win the NLCS. WE so want you guys here in Fenway. It will be kinda sequel to the Lakers vs Celtics.....round 2. We have to play someone fro the NL so it might as well have drama. NOMAH the fraud, still hated in Boston, DLowe, Still loved here in Boston and of course MR. HUSTLE himself..........Yes I'm talkin Manny. Manny isn't loved or hated here. It's just a thing that words fail to convey, You'll see LA. Once the contract is signed by Boston's own Frank McCourt, Manny will do his 180 on ya and then one day you'llbe sitting there and you'll go.......OHHHHHHHHHH I understand now what they in Boston were talkin about..........until then enjoy the show........GO BLUE.........WE HERE CAN't WAIT TILL YA SHOW UP.

Damn, let it go Bosox fans. Manny Ramirez is gone ! You need to worry about the Devil Rays. In our triumph of sweeping the Cubs, leave it to a Red Sox fan to bring up Manny ( and Nomar ) again and again.
It's a sunny day in Dodger land and you idiots have to rain on our parade. You have no respect or appreciation for your players. Think Babe Ruth, Carlton Fisk, Wade Boggs and Roger Clemens. Then you
bring up the Celtics ? Who cares ? The Lakers could have gotten KG, but wanted to return to the Finals more than once in the near future. Oh and one last thing, Bucky Dent and Eli Manning !

Red Sox fans are weak. If Manny was still on the Sox they'd be happy. They throw him under the bus AFTER he's gone...AFTER he helped them win 2 titles.

Jason Bay? Nice player. Great player. He's no Manny. Never will be. They can show whatever stats they want to compare Manny/Bay.... but they would take Manny in a heartbeat if they had the choice and they KNOW it in their heart of hearts.

The Phils will not be the pushover the Flubs were. The Dodgers now have confidence, should be a good series, just hope they don't get too caught up in how easily they beat what was suppose to be the best team in the NL. Every playoff team would love to draw the Cubs for the first series, what a complete horrible display of baseball. Dodgers played real well, I just don't know how good they are due to the competition.

Yes, Angels coming back from 0-2 Game deficit and knocking out Red Sox in series come-back ! That would be sweet !

Dodgers are no threat. The D'backs choked. The Cubs peed all over themselves. They're done. Wait for the Lakers.

Say what ? No threat ? That's why the D-backs and Cubs are both at home wondering what hit them. Wait for the Lakers ? WTF ! There have been so many former Lakers on the Phoenix Suns, I think Phoenix is retirement home for them ! What are you talking about fool ! Can we get some intelligent thoughts for once !

It was a good Saturday. The Trojans rebounded nicely to end up 1-1 against the state of Oregon. And the Dodgers quadrupled their playoff win total since their last World Series championship.

I, for one, would love to see a Dodger-Red Sox World Series. I could just imagine all the angles that could be played up during the series, the heckling that Man-Ram, The Nose, D-Lo, and the Parking Lot Attendant would have to endure when visiting Boston. Then imagine the razzing that J.D. Drew would get here in LA, mostly from TJ Simers in the LA Times, but at least someone will make him uncomfortable.

Why the word 'fool'? Is that the way you were taught to compose a paragraph?

Okay, I will rephrase my sentence using the word "fool." What are you talking about, silly person? Feel better, Dessert Rat?

This is one Red Sox fan that completely agrees with you ! Manny is the main reason I'm following the Dodgers progress now. I'd love to see Boston and L.A. in the series. I can only imagine how Red Sox fans would react. If they booed Manny I would be very upset, and I'm not ashamed to say it.

All this talk about Manny, Manny, Manny.
If he gets what he wants, he'll sign.
I only hope there's enough left over for Martin, Loney, DeWitt, Ethier, Kemp, Billingsley, Broxton to name a few.
If the Dodgers are still alive after the Phillies series all our Ex Red Sox will meet up with their old team in the fall classic.

Red Sox need to worry about another Dodger "Navvaro"

And not to mention the LA-area native, former Rio Hondo Roadrunner and CSU Long Beach 49'er Evan (with an "N") Longoria.

Seriously, what is it with the Dodgers and the catchers they produce? Campanella, Roseboro, Yeager, Scioscia, Piazza, LoDuca, Martin, now Navarro has a great season batting .300 for most of the season.
