There's Dumb, There's Stupid And Then There's Manny

In the history of stupid athletes, Manny Ramirez might be the Michael Jordan of stupidity. Go this site and click on the NESN Manny Being Manny Link.

I'm as tired off this jackass as anyone. But his stupidity apparently knows no bounds, so I have to comment. How can you complain about privacy in Boston, but you allow the Globe to do this spread in your house?? With your wife and kids???

Other players have complained about the privacy aspect of playing in Infidel Nation. It's not a big city in the way NYC, Chicago and LA. In those cities, athletes can go to a city or a club and not get harrassed. Not that way in Beantown. About 600,000 people live in the city, so it's not as spacious as other big cities are. People eat and sleep with this team. They have the best football team on the planet and all they can talk about is the Sux.

But knowing all of this, that they'll eat up everything on this horrible team, why would you open your home to the press? Tom Hanks is one of most accessible stars in Hollywood. But he won't allow the media inside his home because he feels that there's a line that shouldn't be crossed.

You keep hearing that Manny's not mean or malicious. He's just a space cadet. He's an idiot. He has no clue of what your obligations are to your team and your community when you make $20 million a year. People keep talking about him like he's a 10 year old child. He's 33!!! So stop talking about Manny as if you're talking about a toddler. Hold him to the same standards you hold everyone else. He's an idiot who needs to be smacked into line. Plain and simple.

It's amazing that they've given this moron all the free passes he's gotten over the years. I guess batting .320 35 HRS & 120 will get you some slack from the fans.

I'm beginning to think that being stupid is a prerequisite for playing...Raffy has got to be THE MOST STUPID PLAYER IN HISTORY for "not knowing" how these steroids got into his body? Was it aliens??

He's not stupid...he's a liar. He just thinks that the fans are stupid...

Dear Darth,
Missed me? I know I had to visit to see the expected lenghty diatribe on Manny and wasn't disappointed.
I don't have alot of time today so I just checked in to ask if in the evil empire Yankee fans are taught to count past four and a half?

Hey Fenway...we can count to 26. Can you count past 6? As for you, Muttadamus....if you're talking about the New York answer is whatever...he mouths off. As long as he continues to crush the ball, I'm cool. If the Infidels can survive with Manny...I can live with Sheff.

You're a hack.

If Manny wore pinstripes and Sheff was a member of the nation, would you be writing 328 blogs about Manny being the stupidest player on earth?

Any answer other than "NO" is a cry for help.

Blogger Darth Marc said... can't possibly compare Sheff to Manny. You're judging Sheff for stuff he did years ago. Other than mouthing off a couple of times, he's been a model citizen. He plays hard and crushes the ball. If you're saying that you wouldn't love Sheff on your team, you're a liar. You were willing to take on Manny. You're saying Sheff is worse than Manny? Please....

That's EXACTLY what I'm saying. Just please admit to all of us that you'd love Manny if he pulled this stuff while as a Yankee. And you would be writing hate blogs about Gary Sheffield if he was a Red Sox. You're biased. You write a whole diatribe about being more of a baseball fan than a Yankee fan, yet not only are your views are so Yankee slanted, you won't even admit to that. It's OK to be biased, just admit it.

Yes, I would take Manny over a heartbeat. I don't see how you could call me a liar when I've told you from the beginning that I haven't been a fan of Sheffield, from BEFORE he became a Yankee, and I have written as much in my blog so I have PROOF.

And I'm not judging Sheffield on what happened years ago, this garbage comes up CONSISTENTLY with Sheffield. Manny can be Manny all he wants...he's never, EVER thrown his teammate under a bus. Sheffield has done it twice THIS SEASON...not years ago. And that doesn't even count his demand for a contract renegotiation in spring training, and his rant about trade rumors which basically made him untradeable. Everywhere he's been he's mouthed off and has been a distraction. Why else would someone who hits the way he does have been on SIX franchises? He's been a distraction at one time or another on at least four of them, so it isn't all money.

Manny meanwhile, has taken a piss in the outfield wall. OOOOOOOOH! BAD GUY ALERT!

And so it's clear, I DO NOT WANT GARY SHEFFIELD ANYWHERE NEAR SHEA STADIUM!!!! And let me punctuate that fact by saying that if any of the following: O'Neill, Bernie Williams, A-Rod, Brosius, Pettitte, Rivera, Jeff Nelson, and yes, Captain Intangible (Jeter) were Mets in their prime, I would root for them. And I'll even say this (get ready for this bomb): If Clemens was traded from the Blue Jays to the Mets instead of the Yankees, and the Piazza thing never happened, I would probably be Clemens' biggest fan! (Of course now I can't root for Clemens out of principle.) But Sheffield? Never, no way, no how.

Don't back...tell us how you really're going to die in a couple of months anyway.

26? Is that the only number Yankees fans know? Well, The way the evil empire is playing they won't have to learn 27 anytime soon.
Here's another number 5 and a half..and counting.
