Hall of Fame Manny

From the Globe:

But after paying tribute to Ramírez’s prowess, Ortiz soon was convulsed at the thought that Ramírez, because he doesn’t care about such things, might skip his own induction ceremony. He mimicked Hall officials placing a call to Ramírez, perhaps in Brazil, the native land of his wife, Juliana, to see if he was coming.

Ramírez’s response, in Ortiz’s telling? "Just give it to Ino," Ortiz said, referring to Ino Guerrero, the Sox staffer who frequently pitches batting practice to Ramírez and Ortiz. "I’m busy here. Turn the page. I’m not playing anymore."

All right, YFSF humorists. Your turn. What do you foresee Manny Ramirez — maybe the most wacky, carefree hitter ever to wear the title "most feared" in a lineup — saying when his time comes to be inducted into the Hall of Fame?

  • $10 says he cries and thanks his mama.
    Then he asks if anyone’s found the keys to a hot pink 1963 Cadillac El Dorado laying around the inductees lounge.

  • I think he will want to be there, but he has no chance in finding Cooperstown, it’s really in the middle of no where by Manny standards.
