Manny Heading to Chicago

Ladies and gentlemen...cue the crazy!

Following in the footsteps of Michael Jordan and Ken Griffey Jr., Manny Ramirez looks to be the latest superstar to look awkward in a White Sox uniform.

In what had to have been the least secretive waiver claim EVER, Ramirez looks to be leaving Los Angeles for the Southside of Chicago.

This past week, the White Sox put in the claim and have until Tuesday to work out a deal with the Dodgers.


But, according to reports late Sunday night, the deal is done...and all it'll cost Chicago is the nearly $4 million the 38 year-old slugger is due. They are hoping the slugger will be able to replicate the late heroics he pulled off in 2008 when he helped the Dodgers win the National League West.

Of course, no one is talking about it officially, but if/when the deal is finalized, the 11-time All-Star would join the White Sox when they travel to the team that he debuted with...Cleveland.

In just 66 games this season, Ramirez is batting .311 with eight home runs and 40 RBI.

As a Dodger fan, I'm glad they are letting this baffoon, this monkey-like, gorilla-monkey go. He's a shell of his former all-star self. Good riddance to rubbish.

I am glad to see him go. This guy is so full of himself and shit too, uh wait their both one and the same! When he got busted for the roids, and then upon his return could not play anymore, well, Owner's should have a contract clause for these situations where they can void the contract.The Dodgers and all the fans got rip off by this self center douche bag!
