And Manny will wear #8... the pain is REAL!

Recommended Posts

This is both awesome and painful at the same time... but Manny "the shortstop" is going to wear "8" on his back in LA.

 

Yet another twist of the knife.

Why should this hurt and how would it be a tribute to Cal? Arod was Mannys idol. Manny was like 9 when Cal retired, and Cal was well into decline. Manny isn't an Oriole anymore...he can wear 4, 5, 7, 8, 20...I don't care what Manny does anymore. Hope he and his wife eat up LA until he either signs to stay there or go to NY.

Why care? He may be paying a bit of homage to Cal, or not.

Cal should be embarrassed if that's the case. Cal could field the position.

Now follow me on this. 
What if, the Dodgers sign Manny to a long-term deal. 
Next, Manny moves back to 3B starting next season with Seager at SS.  
Then, wait for it, Manny switches his number again to #5.

BTW, ARod's #3 and #13 were already taken on the Dodgers.

Just because he wasn't around for Cal's prime doesn't mean he can't pay a tribute.  One day a year all MLB players wear #42, none of them were an itch in their dads pants when Jackie Robinson hung em up.
