It says here that Manny and Joe will salvage a little bit of self-respect for the NL in October.

Hard to understand this, why risk so much? Wasnt it almost certain he would get caught sooner or later? Did he start using the PEDs after he went to LA last year? If so, how did he get away with it, if not, why did he need it?

I had the same thought, but 2007 was Johan, and I haven't heard talk about his drug use. Yet.

I hope this is the end of the curse.

Is this the beginning of a Guide cover curse?

There's a great picture on Deadspin today of Papelbon, postgame on the mound, wanting to fist bump Manny, and Manny's face is all peaceful and he's holding his hand out as if to gently catch the bump in the palm of his hand.

Manny being Jesus.

The Internet kills the fun in some ways. I always liked the reward of picking up an obscure tidbit from Baseball America, or talking to a friend in California who had the inside dope on some young pitcher I'd never heard of. Now maybe the friend was talking out of his derriere, but it was still fun. And speaking of talking to friends, I spent a lot more time on the phone running up huge bills trying to get someone to trade me a closer for a speed guy. A lot of those trade talks went nowhere, but I felt like a real GM. Now it's mostly e-mail, and I notice the younger owners are sometimes thrown off when you pick up the phone and call them, since you could spell out a trade offer via e-mail in 25 words or less.

Of course the Internet adds a lot to the game as well. It's fun to go to Fangraphs or Baseball Prospectus or John Sickels' blog and devour information that didn't exist 15 years ago. On the other hand, it's also made it harder to get that edge through diligence and hard work. Whether you believe that's a good thing or a bad thing is up to you, I suppose. I used to be annoyed by this fact at first, but now I just appreciate the idea that - like real major league GMs - it just means I have to work that much harder and be that much more diligent to get those little edges that help me win.

Manny is on the cover of the Guide because I found this fantastic picture in which he's clearly beatific AND obscuring his team name. I could not imagine a better image for the cover, though I wanted the cover line to be, "Manny Being Jesus." The man who signs the checks liked "Manny Making Money." Realistically, I see his side.

I'm not that interested in how Boras makes his money, unless he makes big league teams do stupid things. The internet, as the teams eventually find out, means the teams make fewer stupid mistakes.

I think the internet is killing the fun. Does anyone disagree?

The problem is, the Dodgers really need him this year. They couldn't risk him going to say, SF for instance.

I think the Dodgers mucked this one up. There was no market for Manny, and *no competing bidders.* The Dodgers should have given Boras a shrug, said "sorry, market's changed," and taken the offer down significantly. Boras uses his leverage when he has it, but laughably, the Dodgers didn't want to use theirs in this instance. I do realize the pain that comes with cutting your nose to spite your face, but the contract signed this week was a win for Boras/Ramirez despite dealing from a very weak position.
