Can you believe there was a time when the Red Sox actually put Manny on waivers for any takahs?
In hindsight, of all the clevah moves Theo has made since becoming GM, that one may go down as the shrewdest.
I mean since then, Manny has slowly but surely gone from great hittah but consummate bellyachah to great hittah and team playah and as much a paht of the Red Sox mythos as any playah evah.
3 homahs in 6 days off Mussina, more moon shots off the Yankees than any othah club, and now just 5 away from 500 … Manny Being Manny? Fuck yeah.
