« Yankee brass to fans: screw you | Main | Terry McAuliffe: the next big thing or souless interloper? »
Saturday

New York Times

I'm quoted in John Branch's piece in the New York Times about the Dodger's continued marketing of Manny Ramirez in the face of his steroid suspension. 

My basic point was that the Dodgers should do more than just convey disappointment in Manny through their words ... they should express it in their behavior, too; namely, by discontinuing all merchandising of Manny until he returns from his 50-game suspension and has had a chance to win the fans over again.  It might not be the profitable thing to do, but it's the right thing to do.
