Hanley Ramirez wore his traditional No. 13 jersey in his first game as a Dodger, but his new team will soon require he switch numbers to help rectify the past at Chavez Ravine.
A day after the Los Angeles Dodgers pulled off a megadeal with the Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees slapped them with a $400 million lawsuit, claiming the club stole its patented strategy for success.
"I almost choked on my cigar smoke when I heard the trade," Steve Stone said. "Is there any way I can switch teams again? Jed Hoyer is a genius."
“About 3:15 this morning, just as I finished checking the Japanese and Korean Leagues' waiver wires, my cell phone rang,” Hoyer told Cubs.com. “I figured it might have been just another drunken rant from one of our players, but it was Marmol begging me to take him back to the team.”
Out of fear that the deal was too good to be true, savvy General Manager Jed Hoyer inserted a little used, but time-honored, clause into the deal.
The Dodgers’ blockbuster trade with the Red Sox for Mookie Betts and David Price has been mixed after Betts announced he would be perusing a new career in bowling.
Despite signing a massive $365 million 12-year contract extension with the Dodgers, Mookie Betts' deal will actually end in only eight years due to the impending global apocalypse that will take place in 2028.
