Manny Ramirez trade rumors

7/31/2008:

manny-ramirez-boston-red-sox-trade-2.jpgAs 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.

From ESPN:

“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.”

Red Sox blow a 10 run lead in the first to be down 15-14 in the sixth. Haha.

For all the people who think the Sox made a mistake, you just don’t understand the extent to which Manny was sabotaging the entire team in the last couple of weeks. Check out Peter Gammons on this- Titi Francona is about as patient a guy you will find in sports and he had totally had it covering for Manny. More telling, none of the sox players were going to bat for the guy with the media. This wasn’t a typical Manny thing- he was destroying the team. All things considered, getting Bay for him was gravy.

Bay is locked up next season at 8MM. All things considered, sox fans have to be happy about this, it was the best possible outcome.
