    Deport Manny! He is a criminal!

    Now you are being silly because you have nothing to say. What about CASH? He's hitting .235. We are talking about Manny and as I said originally, I hop Boston loses every game until they do the right thing. I hope Manny never gets another hit and he is run out of baseball. I was a fan until he attacked a SENIOR CITIZEN over TICKETS. Defend that. Oh,wait, its Manny being manny. Stop being a homer.

    • C'mon man you know this was blown out of proportion because its Manny! I actually have Dunn on my FBB team (hes just got me flustered)! but if it was as bad as the media made it out then I would be upset with Manny too! The Sox also just lost to TB but we'll see what happens when we Roll the Dice (K) tommorow!

      • Actually, I believe just the opposite. If this HAD been Cash he would be looking for a job like Chacon. That's my point. Because it was Manny the Sox did nothing. As for McCormick (the guy he attacked) saying it's over, what do you think he is going to say? He's a 60 year old man that has a dream job. He is gonna tow the company line. I would bet dollars-to-doughnuts he got something out of it on the sly.
        Too often top tier professional athletes are getting a pass for actions the rest of us cannot. My original post said that if any of us threw a 60 yo coworker to the ground we wouldn't get off with a donation to charity. Let us not forget, this guy has a history. This is not an isolated incident with him. He has a number of documanted incidents that show him to be at best selfish.
        The Red Sox earned a lot of bad karma for the organization and have turned off a lot of people like myself that thought they were a classy organization. Don't take my word for it. Go to ESPN were there are almost 1000 posts on just this subject. You can draw the line between Sox fans and everybody else. Sox fans, like yourself, are defending this guy while the rest of us are saying its wrong.
        I love my teams and I am a true fan(Reds since '75, win or lose and there's been more lose than win over the years) but wrong is wrong. Take Rob Dibble. I was a huge Dibble fan but when he got out of contol I was the first to say so. If Junior had done the same thing I would have the same opinion. Its one thing to be a fan, its another to be a fan thats blind.
        By the way, I appreciate your civil tone. There's no need to hate just because someone has a difference of opinion. Makes a person sound like a Republican.
        Bring on the Curse of Jack McCormick!

      • I agree with the original poster.

        Manny is a scumbag - always has been, always will be.

        He is a major reason why i hate that team - and then a somewhat smaller reason why I hate the city. Hes a worthless rag i just want to wring out over the drain and throw in a dumpster.
