Boston Does Not Deserve Manny Ramirez - It Never Did
"The Red Sox don't deserve a player like me," ... "I've seen how they have mistreated other great players when they didn't want them, to try to turn the fans against them."
Now I could care less about professional baseball...
But the Red Sox and their self-important fans are ungrateful idiots for trading Manny Ramirez.
Point of fact, I stopped following them completely when they got rid of my all-time favorite baseball player in Pedro Martinez.
Show me one athlete in the history of sports like Pedro or Manny who's signed a ginormous, multi-year contract (Pedro got the richest contract ever for a pitcher - 6 years and $75 million and Manny got a 8 year contract worth $160 million!) and then gone out and earned every penny of it. They made the team competitive, exciting, and victorious.
Of course, management thinks THEY are the ones responsible for breaking the Curse of the Bambino...
I don't really hate the Red Sox; I just loathe their fans. This pagan religion really gets under my skin.
If you haven't already, read my prior post - Marginalizing Red Sox Fans.
(In it, see if you can find one of my most *asinine* predictions ever.)
