KEEP MANNY

Some members of Red Sox Nation want to make sure Manny Ramirez remains a citizen.

http://www.KeepManny.com was started on Tuesday and now has over 2,000 signatures from fans hoping the slugger remains on the team.

"We here at KEEPMANNY.com do NOT want to see Manny play for anyone else besides the Boston Red Sox. After watching him play in Boston since he arrived via free agency in 2001, we have grown very fond of the quirky and aloof left fielder," the Web site states.

The site goes on to state that trading Ramirez "would be rivaled ONLY by the trade of Babe Ruth. Haven't we learned from our mistakes?"

Red Sox fan Jeffrey M. Guinee, who launched the Web site, explained his motivation in an interview with the Boston Herald.

"Because of the media there's this undertone that Manny's not wanted here," Guinee told the Herald. "But we think that if the masses were heard it wouldn't even be close. It would be like 10-1 to keep Manny."

Meanwhile, Ramirez, who has requested a trade, put his $6.9 million condominium in Boston on the market and gave reporters a tour on Tuesday.

Teammate David Ortiz recently said he doesn't believe Ramirez will be back with the Red Sox.

So now Manny Ramirez is Babe Ruth? Wtf? :-? You aren't selling him to fund a musical, you're going to be getting top of the line prospects in return...asinine comparison.


Manny himself wants to be out of Boston. He's already threatened to not report to spring training...

Yeah Manny knows that we love him in Boston but a website isn't going to keep him from leaving. I just hope we trade him to the Mets and not the Angels

In two days the website has 20,000 signatures. 18,000 today alone. This site is starting to garner national media attention. The creater is going on Cold Pizza Thursday.

He has also demanded to be traded before and has not. I dont foresee a trade being made including Manny this off-season. That contract is quite ridiculous and the Sox will not get fair value for Manny.

Pretty silly if you ask me... Manny doesn't even want to stay in Boston. He wants to be in NY.

Actually he wants to be in Cleveland... No he wants to stay in Boston... No he wants to be in LA. He doesn't want New York...We'll he will go there if he must... Now he wants to go to Seattle.... Manny is one of the most confused people ever!

From what I have read, Manny wants to go to the West Coast, with the Angels being the first desired destination. He said (through other people) he would consider the Mets due to the relationship with Pedro.
