MannyAntics

I want you to take a good long hard look at this picture and tell me what you see....do those fans act like they are yelling at Manny for causing so much trouble?? HELL NO!!! They are just happy he HAS ARRIVED!! It never ceases to amaze me how the media focuses in on "the player" who can give them the most to write about...and I'm not talking about stats....I mean the "Manny-Rama" !!!

Manny heads out to participate in drills with his teammates and somehow takes a wrong turn???? Wait....I mean this isn't Manny's first trip to this park...doesn't he know the way to the field??? Manny cracks me up!! He is such a trip to watch and one of my sistahs off SoxSistahs Blog made the right analogy over on SurvivingGrady today: "It must piss HIM off that he's like they kid who doesn't have to study EVER and still gets all As."

Manny makes baseball look effortless...and THAT is the beauty of him playing. He knocks it out of the park, jogs around the bases then takes his place in leftfield....laughing with the fans, taking a leak behind The Monster, or picking the flowers (you remember the kid in T-Ball?). That is why I love Manny because he loves the game and the game loves him back....it's not that he lacks respect for the team or the game....he just wants to play baseball....ya know, catch the ball, throw the ball, and hit the ball...HIT IT REAL HARD!!!!

Tex,

Manny is crazy like a fox. I agree with you: look at that smile! At heart, I think Manny is a good man. The constant attention has got to bother someone who just wants to play ball and have fun. Ask any of these so call journalists if they would want someone following their every move, asking for autographs while they were at the park with their kids, making them a prisoner in their own home. Until I've walked a mile in someones shoes, I'm not judging them. GREAT post tonight Tex. And doing it while you are on the IR is even more impressive!

Yah Kaylee!! but I could never hate someone who loves baseball

thanks Ted....a friend of mine who is from Cleveland says Manny loved it there cos he basically could come and go as he pleased...no hassles...

The fact these guys live under such a microscope and not one of them has killed someone is a minor miracle. And guys like Manny, it's got to be torture. If I was Manny, I probably would have punched out CHB and had Kelly tb Girl take out Jackeee'.

Ugh. I'm sick of this press war. Can we have them all shipped to Iraq to cover REAL news?
