Manny season

Is Manny an idiot savant or the anti-christ?

Say what you will about Manny Ramirez--and it's all been said--the man can sum it up. Commenting on the latest scuffle with Red Sox management, Ramirez said: "They're tired of me, I'm tired of them."

Everyone was screaming for Manny's dreadlocked head until he went three-for-five, bashing a couple of doubles against the Yanks (oh, and ran through a stop sign to score). Then the crowd was in his pocket again.

Face it, this happens like clockwork every year. The sun rises, the sun sets, and Manny decides he wants to leave Boston. Then he goes on a tear.

A-rod vs. Mantle

Alex Rodriguez passed Mickey Mantle on the all-time homerun list today.

ESPN guy summed it up Saturday night: A-rod has now surpassed MM in many categories--home runs, batting average, something like six offensive categories in all. And he's done this in 400 less games than Mantle. But then again, as EPSN guy pointed out, The Mick owned seven World Series rings.

"Thank you and good night," he said.
