Manny Does It Again

By / April 13, 2009 / Uncategorized

So according to USA Today, Manny Ramirez wants to back to Cleveland to finish his career.

Now, maybe we are making too big a deal out of this, but come on. You just signed a contract with the LA Dodgers and already you are campaigning for a return to your native team?

Not only did he do it, but he’s dragging Jim Thome, who plays for the Chicago White Sox, with him. He thinks the two should head back there together to call it a career.

Manny said:

I love L.A. I really do. But the way the city responded to me, it reminded me a lot of how it was in Cleveland.

You love LA, but you turn around and stab them in the back. Interesting!

I’m even more happy that the Mets did not sign him. I mean, I get it. He wants to end it where he started. Who doesn’t? These days it is every players dream.

If that was the case, maybe you should’ve had Scott Boras just talk to the Cleveland Indians during the offseason and save everyone a headache.

There is a rule in baseball called “Tampering”. Basically, if a player is under contract with a team a GM of another club cannot talk about that player coming to their team. Otherwise, they get slapped with a lawsuit.

Maybe there should be a rule like that for the players.

You have to love Manny Ramirez!

There is nothing wrong with Manny ending his career back in Cleveland.
He loves LA. I honestly believe he will do good this year. But I’m not upset with him going back to Cleveland to end his career. If I was in his situation I would do the same thing.

Danny there is nothing wrong with him wanting to go back. I just have a problem with him campaigning for it at the beginning of a season or at all. You just don’t do that.

If Manny was a free agent tomorrow, then I wouldn’t have a problem with his comments. But when he’s playing in the second week of a two-year contract and says that…

I feel bad for Thome. He’s a class act and now he’ll probably have to answer questions on what Manny said when he had nothing to do with Manny’s comments.

I blame the media for asking him these questions. If the press would not ask stupid questions to Ramirez. I’m sure he would not say these things.
