So did anyone catch the human peacock Manny Ramirez admiring his solo home run off Jensen Lewis last night? You would have thought the guy just hit a walkoff blast to win game seven of the World Series. But instead, he was showboating a sixth inning home run with his team losing 7-3, in a game they ultimately lost to go down 3-1 in the ALCS! Way to almost cut the deficit in half Manny! Hip hip hooray!
I make no apologies about my allegiance to the Yankees, so of course I’m predisposed to hating the Red Sox anyway. All that aside – when Manny’s “being Manny” he’s a certifiable grade-A schmuck. If Rafael Betancourt had any stones at all, Manny should have taken one between the numbers when he stepped up to the plate in the eighth.
