Simers on Manny: "With the season lost now, it appears all that's left to be determined is where Manny Ramirez might end up next year. He's already pronounced his career over in Los Angeles after this season, and so be it, but is Ramirez already finished as a big-time baseball player? ... He's already climbed back into his Boston shell, doing what he did there when he knew he was on his way out. He's no longer the leader in the clubhouse. Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp have taken over, and now there's some suspicion that for the first time in his career he's been hit hard by self-doubt." -- 4.5.10, Los Angeles Times
