Ohhhhh SNAP!

This nugget tucked away in the Globe’s Red Sox Notebook this morning:

Ramírez was seen doing an interview with a Japanese reporter …

How much do you think that burned the Boston press corps?

13 comments… add one

  • i love it! Some of those reporters are worse than Duquette for the Sox (heck shaunassy coined the curse). i cant wait to read the translated scripts for this.

  • This is classic and I hope that CHB gets pissed about it and actually writes something.
    Go Manny, do that thing you do.

  • he also has said that he now wants to finish his career in Boston. I think this is the four hundred and eighteenth time he has said this.

  • just wondering if we’re going to have a game thread tonite? chances are, we’re going to get our first look at the soon to be named closer runelvys. yep, i said it.
    anyone know why the globe and other sources have changed the spelling of his name to “renelvys”. they should really get it right, because they’ll be printing it alot this year. i believe it translates to “diamond encrusted cadillac” in english.

  • I think the idea of a pitcher with the word “run” in his name is bad karma. That would be like a batter who was named “Kay”. Something would have to change.

  • I can almost picture the Boston media clamoring to translate that interview. What if Manny spoke to the Japanese media in Spanish? Translated twice over, that would be some broken english.
    Not to mention, highly amusing.

  • um, are we going to have a thread?
    Of course we are. Right? I mean, we are going to have a thread right? Jeez. Stop playing.

  • Oh man…that is awesome. CHB must’ve turned purple when he heard.

  • It’s simple but I love the title of this post. I think “Ohhhh Snap” should be used for every time Manny obliviously pisses off the Boston media.

  • the globe has a good slide show collection of manny being manny…it’s called “manny’s moments”…some of them are “non-moments” in my opinion, but there are some gems…
