We Interrupt This Blog (to Bring You Another Blog)

A.J. Burnett, Coco Crisp, Mark Teixeira… The hot stove is indeed buzzing this week, but for closure's sake, I moonlight down the road to take one last look back at the sudden departure of Manny Ramirez, who meant so much, it shouldn't be any surprise his July departure still stings more than three months later.

  • Great article Paul. Great job. Really enjoyed it…except for the part where you said you’d root for Alex or Bonds the same way if they wore a Sox jersey. Alex has really fallen out of my graces over the past 3 seasons but he’ll never ever be on the same level as Bonds in my book.
    I will applaud your honesty though very cool.
    Please don’t bring that Circus to the Bronx. There are enough side shows.

  • A great piece. Loved the lede. Nice to see YFSF getting some love around the ‘sphere.

  • I’ve made no qualms about where I stand with Manny, and for that matter, Alex.
    One is a vastly superior player to anyone on earth, and the other is a goat with great hitting skills.
    I think it’s funny that no offers have been made to Manny as of yet.
    I think it’s even funnier that Boras thinks Derek Lowe is a 16-18MM/year pitcher, and that he should get a contract similar to Barry Zitto dollar figures.
