Strange but in a game where the L.A. Dodgers took a share of first place in their division, Manny, being Manny, hit a 2 run Homer and Nomar Garciaparra hit a walk off home run to seal the victory.
Are we talking Red Sox West here or what ??
Manny has hit 5 home runs in the last 12 games and batting .469 over the past 10. The guy he was traded for is a good 110 points below him in batting average and has already sat out of a game.
The Boston Red Sox beat Texas last night but are still 3 games out of 1st place behind Tampa Bay.
To all my blog readers that aren't baseball fans, please forgive me but there are a few of you that give me crap over my dislike for "The Trade" and now take pleasure in seeing L.A. and Ramirez do well.
Call him a whinner, call him names, "Manny being Manny" was always part of his game and when the Red Sox front office has a contract renewal coming up for a high salaried player I guess Red Sox Fans should just get ready to say goodbye; Roger Clemens, well good riddance to him, Nomar Garciaparra, Pedro Martinez, who will be next?
The Red Sox front office make all these players look like the "Bad Guy" and don't resign them. Nit-Wits!!
And now I am ready to take that abuse....and say GO L.A., GO BLUE !!
