Tim McCarver Might As Well Start Pronouncing "Jhonny Peralta" Correctly...

Red Sox fans have just gotta love Manny Ramirez. He takes a routine run to the little boy's room during the middle of covering left field during games at Fenway, he derisively mocks all that baseball represents (and Bud Selig wants), and doesn't think his team still has a shot at winning the pennant even though the season isn't over....what, wha??
"Why should we panic?" he said Wednesday in a rare clubhouse interview. "We've got a great team." And then, this: "It doesn't happen, so who cares? There's always next year. It's not like it's the end of the world."

The whole article is chocked full of rich, Manny being Manny goodness. Normally, Red Sox fans would be throwing tea off the edge of the harbor and demanding a trade by now. Looks like the '04 Championship chilling in the trophy case has cooled their jets a bit.

Also, Manny's got to be the only athlete that can say some totally outlandish crap and just get it written off as "Manny being Manny" in his city. Eh, so goes the Manny Ramirez saga in Beantown.

Bill Simmons must be banging his head against a desk right about now.

The Sports Truth: "In Boston, Manny Ramirez Era Like None Other"
ESPN: "Ramirez: Elimination from ALCS not 'end of the world' for Boston"
