Manny Goes to Hollywood

This article is more than 12 years old.

Manny Ramirez is outa here...leaving Boston and heading for the hills. The Hollywood Hills, that is.

After months of drama and speculation, the left fielder — better known as a slugger — is leaving the Red Sox to play for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Just before Major League Baseball's trading deadline yesterday, three teams settled on this deal: Ramirez goes to LA, in exchange for Jason Bay, left fielder of the Pittsburgh Pirates, who comes to Boston. Pittsburgh then gets four other players: two from the Sox and two Dodgers.

Gordon Edes of the Boston Globe was one of the first to report the three-way trade, and he joins WBUR's Deb Becker this morning to talk about it.

This program aired on August 1, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
