Manny set to return to Dodgers on Saturday

Ramirez went 1-for-3 with an RBI single on Tuesday in his first rehab game at Single-A Inland Empire and is scheduled to make another appearance for the minor league club on Thursday.  He took batting practice Wednesday at Dodger Stadium.

The 37-year-old decorated slugger was batting .415 with a 1159 OPS, two home runs and 12 RBI before his unfortunate injury.  The Dodgers will hope he can remain that hot once he returns.  They’ve dropped six of their last 10 games and are dead last in the National League West standings.

    Great news! Ever since the Little Old Lady from Pasadena piled headon into a cement mixer, things have been way too quiet around the ravine.
    Here’s to Manny Being Manny – a little seasonin’ on the unfolding McCourt fiasco.

    No matter how big a jerk he was just before he quit on Boston, I can’t hate the guy. He’s got one of the sweetest swings I’ve ever seen, and he was integral to our championship teams.

    Gator , you’ll never know how much I wanted that brand new shiny red Super Stock Dodge she had . As far as Manny being Manny , I’m not really concerned , but that Dodge , that’s a whole different story.
