Manny, Just Run Around the Bases

When Manny Ramirez homered to complete the Red Sox’ back-to-back-to-back to close their deficit to 3 runs tonight against the Cleveland Indians, he stood at home plate watching his mammoth shot longer than Barry Bonds ever has.

Not good.

You’re down 4 runs, ready to go down 2 games. This is not the time for grandstanding. Players who do that when down are thinking more about themselves than their team. Just run around the bases. Your team lost and your backs are to the wall. This is like those NFL characters who make a decent play then put on a huge celebration while their team is down 3 touchdowns.

Manny Ramirez is a great player. But even Red Sox fans know he was out of line tonight.

As I said in my previous post, you can’t count the Red Sox out. Hopefully, though, we can count that kind of display out.

    Manny would do that in a little league game.

    And if you are an Indians fan don’t talk about respect when your fans are throwing bottles at people and talking crap in their blogs. That is just plain hypocritical

    No, I’m not an Indians fan, and sure wouldn’t condone throwing bottles anywhere. That’s clearly worse than grandstanding after a home run.

    I was ALL ready to root for Cleveland if they won this series until the things that have happened and been said by idiots like Lofton, Garko and the Indian “fans” but now I just won’t do it.
    … even Trot is running his mouth and I have lost all respect for a guy that used to be my favorite player.
