Who's afraid of Manny Ramirez?

Expat takes us out to the ball game: That's Manny at bat, in this bird's-eye-view of Petco Park, taken in the 2nd inning of the game on Tuesday, 9/9/09 in which the Padres made quite sure the Dodger champagne remained firmly closed by whacking them 3-1. Manny went 0 for 4, haha.

Since the Colorado Rockies also won that night, the Dodgers were forced to wait at least one more day before claiming the NL West Division championship.

Our spectacular view was from the "Ultimate Skybox" on the 15th floor of the Diamond View Tower, courtesy of Morgan Stanley. The party was to thank Morgan Stanley/Smith Barney clients for not deserting them after all our accounts crashed last year. Something like that, anyway. An open bar and a Padres victory over the Dodgers, can't be bad.

That's very high up. I think I would prefer to be closer to the action!

Great view. I have years of Petco Park shots, but nothing that dramatic. Thanks.

Thats a great view, but was it close enough to see Manny strike out?
