First- Manny could go to the Giants! They would have to show him a lot of money, but if they got him they would be the favorites to win the N.L. West.
Second- The fix for the Dodgers is . . .
A.) Sign Manny
B.) Sign Bobby Abreu, put him in right and move Andre Ethier to left.
I think the Dodgers will do A.
Third- The Detroit Red Wings beat the Chicago Blackhawks, six to four, at Wrigley Field. It was the first time a NHL game was played at a MLB stadium.
Now to the Entry
The MLB Network was awesome. It started out with Bud Selig welcoming us to MLB Network and thanking us for watching. He really needs to smile some more. Like in this picture.
Okay he still isn’t smiling that much, but it looks like he is trying. After that they showed us the studios. I liked studio 42 named after Jackie Robinson. I liked all the people on the show but I really liked Matt Vasgersian, Barry Larkin, Al Leiter, and Harold Reynolds. They had Jimmy Rollins on the show and talked to Josh Hamilton while he was at home. They demonstrated Jackie Robinson’s steal of home where Yogi got all mad in the World Series. They also talked about Manny. They had some news headlines like Barry Bonds getting hip surgery in an effort to make a comeback. After Hot Stove Live, they had Don Larson’s perfect World Series game. They had Yogi and Larson guest in the studio. They showed the original broad cast with even the same commercials! They were really funny like the one with the baseball encyclopedia. I think a better choice for the first game should have been the last game of 2008 since it was new years or Roberto Clemente’s last game because New Years was the anniversary of his death. Here are some fun facts.
