The Ipod Was in His Glove

via Gizmodo, we see that Manny Ramirez may have been wearing a pair of Oakley Thumps, the world’s ugliest sunglasses which also double as an MP3 player, during an inning of play in Texas last week.  Word is that there were no batteries in the gadget, and it wouldn’t surprise us to think that Manny can get by listening to the fat beats running constantly through his head. 

Ah, to have the gift…

  • Oakley – The next major contract for ManRam? Just got my most recent SI, and Manny has some catching up to do on the wealthiest athlete’s list.
    Those are some ugly glasses, though Manny has the hair to hide them!
    Speaking of Manny, don’t you love the “slump” Kruk says he was in during the first half? Projected 45HR, 160RBI’s and rapidly closing in on .300 – not to mention two grand salamis. I love those slumps.

  • Somehow, even back in May when Manny wasn’t doing much at the dish, all Sox fans just knew he’d be back…and that he’d then start to mash the ball in an effort to make up for lost time. And boy did he ever.
    There’s certainly a reason he’s well regarded as one of the best hitters in the majors.
    I think Clement said something in an interview to the effect of: “They all told me to wait until Manny started hitting. I thought he WAS hitting…I had no idea.”

  • As long as he keeps thumping balls over the Monster, Manny can dance out in LF for all I care.

  • Hey SF/YF: No post about the coming four gamer in the Fens? Nobody asked, but I say the Sox take 3 of 4 (dropping which ever game Wells pitches in).

  • Wang is on the DL! I’m taking back the Wells loses comment. Even Fat Dave can’t lose to Tim “9.30 ERA” Redding, can he?
