I have never inducted someone into the Idiot File twice within a span of an hour; alas, let's welcome another inductee to join Mr. Don Imus.
Now, if someone was paying me um, roughly 1000 times what the average American makes, I'd sure have damn pride in my job and my employers. Hell, if I played in a city like Boston where the fans are loyal, sell out the park I play conduct business in, I'd be happy, or at least fake it.
Well, Mr. Ramirez has lost complete common sense and I wonder now does he have a mental illness. I harked to my friend Aaron that Manny would be the biggest flake in sports if he didn't rake with his bat, and I stood by it in light of his talent.
Now, I think I am more than right when he asked about possibly being out of the World Series hunt if they lose Thursday night. Folks, if I were a Sox fan, I'd appalled.
Folks, here's the wit and prose of Manny for you:
From MSNBC: On a workout day, Manny Ramirez gave Boston fans a real reason to get worked up.
With the Red Sox just one loss from elimination, the star slugger was asked about Game 5 of the AL championship series against Cleveland.
“Why should we panic?” he said Wednesday in a rare clubhouse interview. “We’ve got a great team.”
And then, this: “It doesn’t happen, so who cares? There’s always next year. It’s not like it’s the end of the world.”
He's so freaking dumb. Do you really think a Red Sox fan would buy that reasoning? Do you think the Red Sox brass after spending $160 million on a team to get into the World Series would find that funny?
Is he high, freaking dumb, or just doesn't care. Man, I'm in bewilderment as to why any professional athlete would open his mouth up and say that.
If I hear from any Red Sox that says it's, "Manny Being Manny", I question whether you're an actual fan and if you care who wear the team's uniform.
