Manny Manny Manny Manny

The Manny Ramirez saga is now totally out of hand in my opinion.

He's been scratched from tonight's game for uncertain reasons.

He better not get traded just for the sake of making a trade. That would be pure stupidity. I have faith in Theo to do what's right for The Sox. In the end that's what matters, what's the best move for the good of the team but the fact that a guy taking a day off has come to all this is crazy.

Manny's antics can be annoying at times. I've sat and watched a game with Manny coming to the plate while I uttered "Come on Manny, earn yo' money..." and threw my cap on the ground if he struck out or grounded out. But at the same time, how many times has this guy made an awesome play from the field, nailing a runner at home plate, especially this year, and we don't even need to talk about his hitting.

With Manny, I think the good outweighs the bad. Is he overpaid? Totally. But the bottom line is, I don't want his bat out of the lineup because it hurts The Sox and in the end, I only care about THE TEAM. How does losing Manny's bat help the team? None of the trade scenarios I've read about seem worth it to me.

Manny was out on the field in uniform at the end of the game tonight. (Sox got the win. Nice.)
