Manny's back in LA! Signed for the same contract offer they offered him last week, 2 years 45 mil to be paid out over 5 years (10 mil for first 4, 5 mil on the 5th)

Screw Manny. Great player, but you don't quit on your team to get a better contract at a latter date. Plus the dodger's were idiots, competing with themselves for his services. Giants were never going to get him unless he went for a huge discount.

He does make the Dodgers much better, but is their pitching going to be able to keep up? I honestly don't know the answer to that question, do they have 4 quality starters?

They didnt compete against themselves, he came back to them and accepted the offer he refused last week, almost the exact same offer they originally proposed. Their rotation does have 4 quality starters; Billingsly, Kershaw, Kuroda, Wolf and #5 they have Milton/Schmidt/Estes. In the bullpen they have Weaver throwing like the stud he was when he helped carry the Cardinals pitching staff in the 2006 World Series to replace Park, then future ace James McDonald who will likely make it to the rotation later in the season, Kuo returning for long relief and of course Broxton throwing flames to close.

Not to mention Ethier, Kemp, Loney and Martin who are all on their way to being household names. Add switch hitting Hudson to that lineup and a healthy Furcal, we have a playoff contender.

No player wants to play in Spring Training, which is why many hardly do. If you can get away with it by just not signing, props to you!
