The K.M.I.L.A.F.

Even though by my amateur estimation there will be (something like) $50 million freed up in salary, there is a lot of talk that the Dodgers won't be able to keep Manny in L.A. next season, because his free agency price tag might be too steep.


How about this for an idea on how we can afford Manny next season? For every home game remaining, we should pass around a collection basket at the stadium. You know, like the collection baskets at church. We can call it the "Keep Manny In L.A. Fund."


Let's say the Dodgers average 48,000 fans for the remaining 20 home games, and everyone puts $10 into the "Keep Manny In L.A. Fund."  That's $480,000 a game and $9.6 million total. Add that to the $50 million in other contracts that will come off the books, and you have 59.6 million. That means the McCourts only would have to come up with another $40.4 million to reach the $100 million contract Manny most likely is seeking. Piece of cake.


I don't know about you, but I don't want to give him up. The energy he has brought to the team and the stadium is something that I haven't felt in a long time. It's amazing how one MANny can make a difference. And not to mention, how he can get us to wear these ridiculous wigs:
