Manny Ramirez is the Dodgers’ biggest creditor

Whenever you file for bankruptcy, you have to file a list of your creditors.  The Dodgers filed theirs — see the whole filing here — and it’s a fun list:

  • Manny Ramirez, $20,992,086
  • Andruw Jones, $11,075,000
  • Hiroki Kuroda, $4,483,516
  • Rafael Furcal, $3,725,275
  • Chicago White Sox, $3,500,000
  • Ted Lilly, $3,423,077
  • Zach Lee, $3,400,000
  • Kaz Ishii, $3,300,000
  • Juan Uribe, $3,241,758
  • Matt Guerrier, $3,090,659

Other creditors include: Marquis Grissom — who hasn’t played for the Dodgers forever — and Vin Scully, who is owed $152,778.  I don’t care if the other guys get stiffed, but if Scully doesn’t get paid, I’m takin’ a blowtorch to Frank’s mansion. One of ’em anyway.

My favorite part, of course, is that Manny Ramirez is the top creditor. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but it’s my understanding that creditors usually have to make legal appearances in bankruptcy proceedings. I can’t wait to see Manny’s legal filings. I assume that they’ll be hand-written, in either crayon or with the burnt end of a pizza crust, on letterhead from hotel on the planet Mars.  And he’ll send it via some sort of royal courier. Or by carrier pigeon.

Corey Seager will be included on Dodgers’ World Series roster

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.

Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.

Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
