he definitely dogged it and faked the knee thing...nothing will come of it.
I agree...and obviously Manny did want out of Boston if he wanted them to drop those option years, cause where else is he going to get paid $20 million. At 36, it's hard to imagine that he'll get a long-term deal worth that much more than 40 million, unless someone signs him to a 5 year deal at say, maybe 15 million a year. What kind of deal do you guys think he's looking at?
How times fly. Do you remember what he pulled. I remember at the time, my thoughts were F' you Payton.
I'm pretty sure that he verablly attack Francona about playing time, he was relased the next day.
What Manny did, was to erase everything good, he had done in Boston for 8 years. Some guys are just so stupid! I loved Manny, the antics, all of it. But when you have absolute proof that the guy quit on his team, then you have to dump him.
Manny will not go into the HOF wearing a Sox cap, if #24 goes up in right field, it will be for Dwight Evans (wouldn't that be a kick in Manny's pants, if the Sox had Dewey day and retiered his #24 (like Manny never happened)).
The Sox should give #24 to the thrid cathcer that they call up in September.
Hopefully the "investigaiton" will let the Sox "recoop" the two sandwich picks that they would have gotten if Manny left in free agency. The Commish's office has always been "in bed" with the Sox ownership group, so you never know.
I would die laughing if Boras got suspended, but I really can't see that happening.

The Boston Globe owns the Red Sox. Why would anyone believe info reported about this situation in the Globe?
Half truths are often more deceptive than full blown lies.
Don't people see the conflict of interest here between the Globe and their "anonymous sources close to the situation"?
Red Sox fans, of which I am one, are embarrassing themselves on this.
Theo wanted to treat Manny as a year to year commodity, or he didn't want him around.
Manny felt that a HOF player so historically significant to the franchise should not be treated like that. That the Red Sox should either sign him to a contract and let him finish his career with the team, or they should let him find someplace that wanted him. Not jerk him around year to year like a kid up from the minors.
IMO, he was right.
it's interesting watching Fans working themselves up into an anti-Manny frenzy based on propaganda originating from the team.

"The best everyday player since Ted Williams", you've got to be kidding me! Maybe the best at production. I know you believe he was a hell of a teammate, tho, I'd bet huge sums of money the captain would disagree with that (of course he would never say so publicly). Manny was less then an average base runner. How many times did we see him tip his helmet off going to home, and being called out. He was a below average fielder. He made some great plays, but those were matched by some classic boneheads. Hey remember the one time he dived and caught that ball in right center. Problem was it was being thrown by Damon.
Fred Lynn or Manny, and your taking Manny?
