Little knows the teams not better. But hes sending his message to Manny. Manny is really lacking dedication. Hes too sick to pinch hit, misses a Dr. appointment, but can go out at night? If Bonds did this, there would be 100 i hate you Bonds posts. Manny is a great hitter, but a sorry excuse for a ballplayer.

I don't blame him for sending a message to Manny. It's just that Manny hasn't seemed to care in his entire career. I just can't see benching your biggest hitter in the middle of a playoff run. Plus he didn't go out, he went downstairs. He lives in the hotel during the season. I think it's great that he's trying to teach Manny a lesson, I just didn't want it to come at the expense of the team. And no, I'm not a Red Sox fan. ;-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Let me get this straight --- Ramirez is being punished for essentially not wanting to play by being told he can not play? :-?

Strange justice!
