I read on a Dodger site yesterday that they (i.e. the Dodger fans) generally seemed to think it was a good idea to acquire Ramirez, FWIW. In fact, they seemed to think it was somewhat unrealistic on their part to think the Dodgers could pull this trade off.
Is there not a sort of bloodshed when the conscience is wounded? Through this wound a man's real manhood and immortality flow out, and he bleeds to an everlasting death. I see this blood flowing now...
