Manny, Manny, Manny

You may or may not know that I’m a Red Sox fan. I don’t blog about them often (actually, ever) – but I have to try to sort through my feelings about “The Manny Trade” and figured this might be a good way to do it.

So … right now we’re hearing that he’s been traded in a three team deal. (Hansen and Moss are gone too). And We get Jason Bay. I know nothing about Bay…but it seems like that’s a lot of players leaving for what we are getting! I’m hoping that there are other things involved, but we just haven’t heard about it yet…

I’m sad that Manny is leaving because (when he actually plays) he’s a KICK BUTT hitter. And he brings humor to the game. I’m okay with him leaving because of some of the publicized antics lately (throwing a 60 year old man to the ground, b*tich-slapping Youkilis, among other things).

So. It’s too bad that a hall of famer is leaving us – but if he’s disrupting the team too much, or if he’s going to be a super diva – SEE YA. And let’s hope we won’t be playing against your team too often…

  1. Exactly, he can play some good ball, when he feels like playing. But he’s a bum. Granted a lot of players have no real team loyalty but they hide it a little at least. He had no problem showing that he had no loyalty to Boston through some of his actions and words. Good riddance. (not to mention now the Yankees may have a better chance of sliding into first place.) 🙂

  2. Embarrassingly, I am SOOO out of the sports loop…but I do have to do a gloaty gloat…we’re taking my Grandpa to Fenway for his 92nd birthday later this month! 🙂 (He loves the BoSox)

    I am SOOOO excited. Thanks to your post, I’ll have some background!
