My theory on Manny Ramirez

Manny was arguing with his wife over the dwindling supply of female fertility drugs in their Florida home.

(Kidding.)

Likes: It was weird flying on 9/11, but only for a little while. The airports seemed normal, and my flight from San Diego to Chicago wasn't unusual. Still, reading the Sunday papers and the 9/11 tribute stories along the way, you couldn't help but look around the plane and wonder what things must have been like on that awful Tuesday in those hijacked planes. There was one reference to 9/11 on the flight, and it was subdued and classy: After we landed in Chicago, as we were taxiing toward the terminal, one of the Southwest Airlines flight attendants simply and somberly asked for a moment of silence aboard the plane in memory of the tragic victims from 9/11. Everyone complied -- including the shrieking toddler one row in front of me that, shall we say, contributed to making the flight seem very normal. ... Landed in Chicago about 30 minutes after the Bears dusted the Falcons in the NFL opener, and it was very cool to taxi by Soldier Field and see hundreds of folks tailgating after the game on a drop-dead gorgeous Chicago day. ... The deep dish sausage pizza at Gino's East on Superior St. ... Great run along Lake Michigan on Monday, and you never know who you'll see. Coming at me from the opposite direction about halfway through my run? Dave Dombrowski, the Tigers' general manager. Hard to miss him, what with the old English D logo prominently displayed on the chest of his T-shirt and on his shorts.

Dislikes: Sure hate to see the Border's Books, a mainstay on Michigan Ave. in Chicago for years, gone.

Rock 'N' Roll Lyric of the Day:

"Better ask questions before you shoot
"Deceit and betrayal's a bitter fruit
"It's hard to swallow, come time to pay
"That taste on your tongue don't easily slip away
"Let kingdom come I'm gonna find my way
"Through this lonesome day"

-- Bruce Springsteen, Lonesome Day

My theory on Manny Ramirez

She probably deserved to be slapped. She probably hid his crack pipe or his needles for roids. Justice brother that is what it is.

My theory on Manny Ramirez

Destined for greatness with the ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!  Manny was just an undisciplined human being.  Would not listen to his coaches or teamates.  He thought the big money bought him immunity from impunity.  Now we are watching another train wreck of a life after baseball.  He was fun to watch while it lasted but his me me me persona wore thin wherever  he landed and now at home.  Baseball is better off without him and doubtful if he can coach even Little Leaguers.  We will just sit by and watch the police blotter for the latest Manny being Manny updates.  Sad he could have done so much more if he had committed more to humanity and Baseball.

My theory on Manny Ramirez

Ya got to look at it from Manny's point of view.All he knows is baseball, so he's got nothing to do.Seriously, who would hire him to do anything.He doesn't have the fame he had for many years, in fact he's become infamous.No more cheers for Manny.No more girly medicine.What's a guy like Manny suppose to do?Of course, he does the only thing he can do;Manny being Manny.He may not be able to hit a baseball, but he can hit his wife.Now she can clean him out & leave him with nothing but the thought of the things he could have done, but didn't.Manny being Manny could very well qualify for SSI in the not too distant future.Manny Ramirez was a player who at one time was a shoo-in for the HOF.Now I doubt they even want him anywhere near Cooperstown.

My theory on Manny Ramirez

GOOD GRIEF !!! How did this guy get a score of  159 for nothing that had really to due with sports. What we really don't need though is a Manny jr. in baseball if he does have a kid .I hope not he might feed him steroids in his little bottle.Other then that really this was a complete waste of my time reading this. Finding a better hobby pal.Please!!
