Posada on Manny

Postby Strasil42 » Mon Jul 18, 2005 6:38 pm

Trailing, 5-1, entering the ninth -- which had seminal moment written all over it -- Manny Ramirez led off with a prodigious blast to left-center off Tom Gordon. He finished his swing with an emphatic flourish that seemed to tick off Posada.

Posada followed Ramirez a few steps up the line, then turned for the third base line, perhaps to say something to Ramirez on his way home. But plate umpire Jerry Meals made sure to occupy Posada as Ramirez completed his trot. The two players did not exchange any words, at least not at that moment.

''We try to play the game the right way," Posada said later. ''That's the only thing I have to say. You're down by three runs."

Actually if you watch the video tape, Manny was trying to untangle his hairdo which got caught in his 15 gold chains. :-D

Manny is manny. That is why the Sox offered many to any team willing to pay his contract a few seasons ago.

Hall of Fame Bat. Little League attitude. :-t
