Watching the Sox/Yanks game right now, and I’m disgusted with what I’ve been seeing lately. Manny Ramirez hits a ball to the opposite field that barely made it over the wall. He wasn’t sure if it was gone, so he goes into his half ass trot. If the ball hits off the top of the fence, he would have had a single. Run you fucking bonehead! The guy gets paid millions to play a game, and he’s more worried about looking cool than helping his team win. What a loser. Even though he’s one of the best hitters in the game, his teammates don’t even consider him a leader because he’s such a head case. Same with Pedro. Nomar is a class act and along with Varitek leads by example.
As if the drunken fans running onto the field weren’t bad enough, the scene from game 5 of the A’s/Sox series made me sick. Johnny Damon gets knocked out for 2 min, an ambulance takes him off the field, and a few asshole Oakland fans were laughing and taunting David Ortiz as he was helping the 2nd baseman into the dugout. Talk about no class. I was glad to see the cops put this guy in a headlock and drag him out. It’s almost as bad as the Philly fans booing the national anthem.
Ok game on.
