Manny Ramirez trade rumors
As many of you probably already know, there is lots of action & rumors brewing up as the MLB trade deadline approaches this afternoon. The biggest one being Boston’s Manny Ramirez.
Even if I was a big Red Sox fan, I wouldn’t like Ramirez. Cocky, arrogant, and lazy. Some ESPN commentators said Boston would be stupid to trade away his “production” at the plate, and would be unable to fill his spot in the lineup.
“The Red Sox don’t deserve a player like me,” Ramirez said. “During my years here, I’ve seen how they [the Red Sox] have mistreated other great players when they didn’t want them to try to turn the fans against them.
“The Red Sox did the same with guys like Nomar Garciaparra and Pedro Martinez, and now they do the same with me. Their goal is to paint me as the bad guy,” Ramirez added. “I love Boston fans, but the Red Sox don’t deserve me. I’m not talking about money. Mental peace has no price, and I don’t have peace here.”
