Ramirez Surprisingly Zen About Leaving Los Angeles

Manny Ramirez, the Dodgers' trump card the last two and a half years, sounded pretty at peace with the fact he is no longer a Dodger:

On how things ended in Los Angeles:

M: I blame myself because I didn’t stay healthy.

Q: Why did you want to be traded from L.A.?

M: I never said I wanted to be traded from L.A. They put me on waivers. It’s the same thing they did with Johnny Damon. He got put on waivers. A lot of guys from my team were on waivers. Everybody was on waivers.

I can just imagine the scene of reporters flocking over Manny trying to deconstruct his brain after his recent weeks of silence with the press. Kudos to Ramirez for keeping it cool, man.

Karina, do you have your Good Life Card yet? Can you buy a dependable closer with it, or just groceries from government owned stores?

"Is that what I think it is?"
"Yeah that's the Dodger's soul in a briefcase. Want it?"
"Nah"
"Me neither"

Hadn't seen this. Dusty, I won't have a "Good Life Card" because:

a)you need an account in one of the Government owned banks.
b)even if I had one, I wouldn't receive the card because I'm on a list called "lista Tascon". I signed something against the President and I can't seek a job in the government or receive any kind of help.

The food you can buy with that card is very low quality and I'm afraid I couldn't afford a bucket of decent balls for batting practice :(
