You still haven't given any points you have made in the conversation. How was Manny not given special treatment? Why is it okay he asaulted a 60+ year old man over baseball tickets? How does the alleged "internal reprimand" the Red Sox gave him suit what he did? Why have other players committed vitually the same transgression and recieved far stiffer consequences? My answers: He was, its not, it doesn't come close, and because he is Manny and the Red Sox decided that winningwas more important than doing what is right.
