Quote If you're talking about Manny, he's currently only in the "Hall of Whiners"! That guy has way too much baggage for a true professional. Can't wait to see him cut that mop and be corralled in by some other management. Good luck to them! Manny's real claim to fame is his bad attitude. You can call him "Mr Nohustle". Besides hitting, he's a very weak player on the field and cancerous in the clubhouse........ good riddance!


Well he is batting .500 with a slugging percentage of .875 in his first two games. Maybe he will do much better without the Red Sox baggage. How amazing how Boston fans love a player then degrade them irregardless of past accomplishments and spit them out like sour milk. I used to root for the Red Sox to beat the Evil Empire. Now they act just like the Yankees. Go Rays, Go Dodgers!

Hey all hockey fans!
I wish you were all here in Buffalo where I just planted a series of 5 hockey stamps!
So Rockin Lunch Lady has the Preds, I have the Sabres, Wassa has the Sharks, and BigRedOne has Detroit. Anyone else out there claim a team as their own and want to carve a stamp of the teams logo? If someone can give me advise as to how to organize a carve and plant for all 30 teams, I'm all ears..

68 days till my team drops the puck...although I'll have all eyes on the Hawks this year and the Caps just cause Ovie is so awesome.

First of all...the only baggage was Manny's alone.

Second...If you were actually read the numerous Red Sox blogs...if you were to actually visit the "Sons of Sam Horn"...if you were to read comments left on media websites by fans, I think you would find that the overwhelming number of them do not do as you claim in your post.

Your last two sentences seems to conflate the fandom and management of the Red Sox in such a fashion that you arrive at an utterly illogical conclusion.

Jason Bay is doing even better than Manny after 2 games...but you won't see me saying that the Sox got a better player in this deal...at least not by citing 2 games worth of stats.

Overall, I'd have to say that your post piles misionformation on top of agry rhetoric in order to create a perfect waste of bandwidth.

Regular season baseball, and a 3 game series doesn't really translate well to such pipedreams. Heh..you didn't even go 7 games!


I think your incisive commentary and in depth analysis of the Cubs speaks for itself.

Good for Jason. Maybe he also needed to get away from baggage. Irregardless of whatever Manny did or didn't do he certianly is producing given a chance to get out from under the negativity toward him in Boston. I do not know if it was deserved or not. But I doubt if the baggage was one way. And after three games he is now 8/13 for a batting average of .615. Yes it is just three games but he is trying again.

Okay so I'll get off of baseball since it is not my sport. I know college football and basketball. Can't wait for NCAAF kickoff when we can see an exciting sport instead of the slow, painfully boring baseball to watch (See it is exciting in person but not on tv).

And just when was the last Cubs title? 1908. You think they are due since it has been 100 years? They are still the Cubs, they will find a way to lose. Just like the Red Sox did until recently. Okay now I am done with my inciteful comments on a sport I do not watch.

Peace and good luck Dodgers and Rays

I don't think you can really make the case that there was a lot of negativity aimed at Manny. When he wasn't physically assaulting members of the Red Sox on National TV....When he wasn't throwing 60 year old men to the ground...When he wasn't giving up at bats to teach the Red Sox a lesson....the team prety much bent over backward for him.

But it wasn't enough...and the split was amicable enough. Maybe you might consider his contract situation in the calculus before you make anymore poorly informed assumptions.

You can go back to basketball if you wish, but after your analysis of the NBA finals...I'm not sure that is going to be very fertile soil for you to till either.

While you are right that I am wasting resources responding to you, I would have to say that it is my own time, and not bandwidth because I think I actually bring something to the conversation besides misinformation.

But that is just my opinion as well.

For clarification purposes I stated college footballl and basketball not professional. Professional sports is entertainment. Of course my pick in NBA was as a partisanl fan since I grew up with Lakers (Jerry West being a Mountaineer) and hating the Celtics. Rather strange for an irishman.

Quote But that is just my opinion as well.

Yes we all have them and they are not wrong. My opinion is that Boston's (and New England Patriots) professional teams are ones I do not like. Your comments have certainly not changed any of those opinions about the Sox (who I used to root for when they were the underdogs). BTW, I do not have any opinion on the Bruins since I do not watch or follow hockey very much.

Anyway have a good postseason in baseball world. I will have moved on to BCS and college football.

Thanks for mentioning that TG. I've been in an intentional news black out all day until I could watch the Olympics for myself. The East Coast is 12 hours behind Bejing and those of us in western time zones from there have to wait even longer!

Putting "spoiler" in the post title with the actual news inside the post is typically considered the way to talk about such...well...spoilers her on AQ, isn't it?

Since the Games will be going on for a full 2 weeks, can I make a PREquest?

Please remember that the time zone delay is long enough for the US east coast from Beijing and even longer for those in western time zones! Please may we have *spoiler* alerts in post titles when talking about them and put the real news *inside* your posting?

Our local news and sports reporters are beginning all their segments with "if you don't want to know the results yet please mute your tv now."

Fair enough?

Thanks!

Point taken. It is like taping a college football game and not listening to the radio all day and just when you are turning on the tv to pop in the tape the score is flashed up on the screen. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh.

Any way there was another USA gold today but I won't say her name or what sport.
