More stupidity will ensue EVERY time Manny is involved.

He didn't even FIGHT it, so I would say it's even worse than it seems. He's hoping if he takes the punishment without a fuss they won't dig any further. He was cited as taking a FEMALE infertility drug, a known agent for off-setting the negative effects steroids!!

Yeah, it's gonna get REAL interesting!!

MannyWOOD . . . MannyDID!!

Default Re: Baseball thread - Manny plot thickens!! UPDATE!!

Report: Ramirez had elevated testosterone level

Just a little bit more info. Seems he changed his "defense" after he found out how much they REALLY knew.

Again, I'm sure even MORE will come to light as time goes on.

A little more insight to the real Manny:

Big Papi sounds off on Manny

This shows a bit of how older acquaintances see him. Not in a good light either.

Jays-Number # 1 and holding. They beat the Yankees last night; Can they keep it going? Lets get some fans out the dome and root, root, root for the home team

Doc Halliday is a surgeon on the mound but the main difference; Cito Gaston and the hitting. Gruntersdad, Tampa always give us a hard time but maybe between us we can keep the Yanks and Redsox at bay and duel it out at he end of the season.


Go Jays!

I remember when beating the Yankees was a big deal. Does it men so much anymore? It seems the Rays are the formidable foe in the AL East. Standings be damned as of yet. It's always much different as the season goes on. Key players on different teams get hurt and it makes a difference in the standings as teams try to make the bench do the work of the everyday players.

The Red Sox have a heavy duty bullpen so far. It's been the difference, especially with Papi not hitting, Youk has been out, Dice-K still is out, Pedroia had a few days off with an injury, Lowell still is just getting by with the hip surgery and the shortstop position has been a crap shoot. It's been interesting to say the least, but the Red Sox are still doing alright. I'm hoping it all comes together soon and the REAL push will be on!!

Go Red Sox!!!!

It was a big deal because A.J Burnett was a Jay and was learning from the Doc but then bolted for the Yanks, unfortunately we got trounced last night.
The Redsox and Yanks are both still formidable but I think we get a few injured pitchers back soon and that will help out, all Cito wants is for the pitchers to keep them close for 6 innings and let the batters do the rest, a little relief and a close and Bob's your uncle. Sounds like American League Baseball to me. I'm sure that they will be competitive during the season but I can not expect them to land on top, if they do then that would be extra gravy. For all you Redsox fans out there "Pawk ya car in Havard yard.

Amazingly enough, the Red Sox have taken first place. They're SOOO not hitting on all cylinders. Big Papi only has ONE home run!! Does that mean everyone else is having issues too?? The Yankees are a close second and only one game back but the Jay's n' Ray's will be staying in back for a bit it seems.

I suspect the Yankees to come up quickly if things keep going the way they are now. They're playing really well right now, so we'll see how it goes in the next few days!!

Thank you, Papi, for all the wonderful memories. The '04 ALCS will be one of my happiest sports memories forever. And I salute you for all of your amazing contributions.

Now please sit down on the bench (or get sent down to Doube A and figure out whatever it is you call a swing). You are killing me. I keep watching, waiting, hoping you'll go 3-4 with a few dingers and I can say "See? He's fine!" but no. Night after night of 0-3's and 0-4's with 3 Ks and leaving 10+ on base. You are killing me. 6th in the lineup is no good. You need to leave the lineup. You make us a National League team (where the pitchers hit...)

Tito, please - everyone knows what you're doing - that you're loyal to your players to a fault, but eventually Theo's gonna have to force your hand. This is sad to the point of ridiculousness. Bill Simmons put it best when he said (and I paraphrase) "[it's] gotten to the point where it's like your son is the worst player on his little league team and you know it and you know all the other kids make fun of him. Just sad"

We are now tied for 1st with the Yankees - which is surprising considering we have an 8-man lineup and 7.5 players on the field (Nick Green are you kidding me? Can you please get to and stop a baseball please? The .5 missing depends on who is pitching...which leads to...)

Lester and Beckett have ERAs hovering around the 6.00 mark and Dice-K actually lowered his ERA by giving up 3 earned in 5 innings today... Wakefield (who I have always loved and defended) is the ace of the staff right now with 6 Ws and the only starter with an ERA below 4 (3.99). Papelbon decides (probably at the behest of his agent...) to change his mechanics in the offseason to "aleviate stress on his shoulder" and now he's blowing saves and giving up two-run homers every appearance... Penny has had great run support, and looks like some decent trade bait (great performance last time out while being sick)
I look forward to Smoltzy getting in there in June and we have to have Buchholz in there soon too, yeah? He's destroying AAA hitters now - he's definitely ready.

Being the admitted homer that I am - I made it a point to always take the Red Sox player in my fantasy leagues if they were available. (fortunately Papi was never available) and offensively - along with the other players from other teams - my offenses are all near the top - and they're all tops in Runs and Average - but damnit do *all of my pitching stats suck*...Ridiculous. I lead one league in Ks and other than that I'm at or near the bottom of the pile in Wins, and definitely at the bottom in ERA and WHIP...just horrendous... And not just my Sox guys - but Kazmir (what's up Kaz?) and everyone else on my roster... Oh - and Manny's on all of my teams somehow as well - gone for 50 games....F you, Manny...Enough fantasy...

Everyone's on Papi (as they should be) but Pedroia hasn't hit a home run since his first at bat of the season. Thankfully he's hitting about .340 and is is a defensive monster, but let's get a crack or two huh? (I actually benched him on one of my fantasy teams for a while because I also have Orlando Cabrera and Aaron Hill - who knew they'd be putting up these ridiculous #s?)


When Manny left we shoulda said "Adios" to Lugo as well. After we all knew he was a bust, I thought we kept him around because he and Manny were such good friends....Well...Manny's gone and we still know Lugo can't field, throw, hit, and he's not the speedster he once was...Not sure if I'd call him a "baseball player" anymore... More like "The pedestrian formerly called a baseball player" - like Prince!


You know how we became awesome in '04? We traded to upgrade our defense. We need to do that again. We need a really solid SS. Might've had one with Lowrie, but he's out for a while (originally "season ending surgery" but I thought I heard somewhere that he might be okay around August...?)

Good to see Tek coming alive at the plate.
Good to see Jacoby starting to reach some of that potential he teased us with when he first came up. 22 game hitting streak. Now what's up with the 6 caught-stealing's?

AND I LOVE YOU JASON BAY. You are everything I could want in a Red Sox player. Great hitter, great fielder - hustles, class act. Can we please sign you to a Forever deal? again: I love you.



Anyway - despite all of that - we're somehow in 1st (tied with the Yankees, who suddenly have a determined Alex Rodriguez). We crush at home and disappear on the road. Let's change our pre-game routines at the hotels, huh guys? Fortunately after Minnesota we get to beat up on the Blue Jays (that Cinderalla season lasted about a month, huh? 9 losses in a row) We need another series with the Yankees too - now that Rodriguez is back it'd be a nice wake-up call.

MAN!! You got a lot going on in your post, a lot I AGREE with!!! Yeah, '04 was just about the greatest sports moment of all time, It doesn't get any better than that. I still get chills watching it. The only thing CLOSE was the '72 Bruins against the Blues, the Bobby Orr years, yeah, that was CLOSE bit still not as good.

I gotta say, Papi either figures it out, or he's gotta sit or rehab somewhere. The Red Sox HAVE to have a full 9 men playing their hearts out with SUCCESS in order to make this season happen. A single piece of dead wood is gonna KILL them eventually.

Yeah, the pitching has baffled me, two KILLER pitchers, Beckett and Lester are struggling BADLY, and from my point of view, for no REAL reason!! Unless something is being hidden, they're not HURT or SICK or anything, they're just SUCKIN'!! Dice-K has a most peculiar way of getting through a season, I don't LIKE it, but so far he's always gotten it done come end of the season. It's just tough to WATCH.

Shortstop . . . I LONG for the days of Orlando Cabrera or even Alex Gonzalez, especially Cabrera who seemed to swing a mean bat. But the steady and seemingly superhuman defense supplied by Gonzalez would be a massive improvement right now. With Lowell being a bit slower than normal yet, it's a bad thing to have BOTH pieces of that side of the infield not supplying the 100% coverage needed. I would never sit Lowell as he's EARNED his keep, even as he heals. But with three guys vying for Short, one on the DL, one not quite healed yet, and one too "Green" to make the grade it seems as though a permanent fix should be thought about here.

Manny?? I don't miss him at ALL!!! I'm surprised he never got his ass handed to him by another player in the Red Sox clubhouse. His hitting prowess aside, he IS a cancer. Good riddance.
All this team needs is 8 more Jason Bay's to take the field and we'd have a dynasty that would quit only at his retirement. Bravo to the Red Sox for THAT move!! my it come to pass that he stays and retires a Red Sox!

I'm lovin' that Tek is back, in full force, let's hope the long season doesn't take it's toll on his age.

Petey and Ellesbury are doing just fine, if this is as good as it gets from them, I'm OK with it. but I know Petey will swing better, he's a streaky hitter, so it'll come out in the wash.

However, all of that being said . . .
I still trust that Tito and Theo will figure it all out. They don't have a 100% record of doing EVERYTHING right, but I'm willing to put MY trust in them. They're the ones who brought TWO rings to us in 4 years. I would have NEVER thought it possible, and they pulled it off. I'd be happy with a ring every FIVE years or so, wouldn't you? That seems a reasonable expectation, NO?? Well, we all gotta relax a LITTLE bit as really, they're ahead of schedule a bit, so, not to worry, not to worry.

Well,


If anyone knows me personally, they know that I CAN'T STAND THE YANKEES!! Hate's a strong word, but you can use it here to explain how I feel about them.

But...


I gotta give it to Derek Jeter. He's accomplished a great feat. Becoming the leading hitter in Yankees history. And that's saying something. Gehrig, DiMaggio, Ruth, Mantle, Mattingly, etc...ALL have less hits as a Yankee than DJ.

Among all his other accolades, you just gotta give it up for Derek Jeter. And as a Cal Ripken disciple, my hat's off to you DJ.

Well Done!! ;-)

Although the Yankee fans are glad they won, they are just as bored with it as the rest of us. time for a salary cap.

I agree, a cap is needed for sure, though most Yankee fans I talk with have a THOUSAND reasons why they don't WANT or don't NEED a salary cap. A THOUSAND rationalizations, a THOUSAND excuses.

The ONLY reason a Yankee fan WOULDN'T want a cap would be . . . NOT having the huge advantage by being able to BUY their own all-star team.

Unless the entire league is renamed the Yankee league, talent had better be spread around a bit.

The Yankees don't have "fans", just a very very expensive bandwagon.

The Phillies will get 'em next year!
