    Strangely enough I'm sort of happy for him.

    Bill has no love lost for any former players they all are Fat Cats to him.he also believes obad off year is how went whole career went. One last thing has no use for facts. 

    Despite all that he is a good poster.

    Manny (through interpreter): Hey coach, I hurt my meniscus

    Manager:  Oh dear.  Which one?

    Manny (to interpreter):  Tell him BOTH

    I hope he doesn't do it because he needs - or even wants - the money.  If he wants to play, get cheered, etc., good for him, I hope he has fun.  I hate it when fans project their desires for players to "go out on top" onto the players.  It's the players' legacies, and lives.  If they want to dress up and play ball, great, why should they care what Johnny from Burger King thinks?

    I am not a big suppporter of Manny the person, but there is nothing he could do on or off the field that would tarnish my memories of him at his best on the field.

    I wonder why Manny would pass on Japan or even just play in his native Dominican Republic.

    The last thing I want Manny to go through is a culture shock in Taiwan.  LOL

    go ya one better carnie, who can ever forget the moon shot up in toronto that landed on the tarp in left field way way back in the upper deck. had to be close to 500 feet or so.  between him and pappi they both gave us their fair share of thrills and walk offs.

    by far the greatest right handed power hitter I have ever seen in my lifetime. and I'm including mark Mcguire, sammy sosa and a whole host of long ball swingers.  I do have to say that I saw Mcguire hit one at fenway when they still had the 600 club seats and he hit that ball so hard that it was still climbing when it cleared the lightstandards in left field. he hit it a country freaking mile. he was one of the bash brothers with the A's back then.

    Home runs are one thing Hammah.  But Manny, as you say, was just a great hitter.  Patient, a master pitcher-manipulator, one of the great two-strike hitters to ever play the game, and, of course a baseball punisher.  I think the Manny hits that will be ingrained forever in my memory are not any of his home-runs, but his beautiful inside-out lasers to right-center. He was no mere masher.  Certainly the greatest righty of his era.

    Ha! you ain't kiddin space! for a guy that was such a pull hitter to left, he would get that inside out swing working on alot of occasions and rifle the ball to right center with tremendous power. and alot of em went out.

    I understand how you feel.I really hate what Manny did at times,which we all know about,but when he wanted to,he was funny,engaging and a beast at the plate.He actually played the Wall prettty well too.

    One of my favorite non baseball game related moments,was the day he had gotten his American citizenship and ran out to Left Field holding the little flag
