Now that we have had the weekend to soak in the Manny Ramirez retirement, and clear our heads and gain a proper perspective, there are a few things that I think need to be said…
F*CK YOU MANNY!
I’m sorry for the foul language, but this is horsepoop. I’m happy that Manny is “at ease” and on the way to Spain for a nice little vacation. How about a goddamned apology before you head to the airport? Huh, you overgrown piece of rat feces?
Hey, maybe we shouldn’t be surprised. And maybe the front office took a chance and gambled on you, hoping you could hang around for an entire season. But that doesn’t change the fact that your teammates, and the fans, were counting on you.
And make no mistake. My anger is not steroid driven. It is based on the fact that Manny is not here to help this team and it is his effing fault.
There were a lot of holes in this lineup before Manny was signed. And when the announcement came that the Rays were getting Manny and Johnny Damon, it gave us hope. Maybe this team would be able to score some runs. We didn’t need 2004 Manny. But 2009 and 2010 Manny was still pretty good.
And now what? Dan Johnson is this team’s DH moving forward? Casey Kotchman is the team’s first baseman? Holy fadge my head just exploded and just oozed goop all over my hopes for the season.
You are at ease? That’s nice. I hope a bird makes a nest in your hair. And I hope that bird lays five eggs. And after those eggs hatch, I hope those baby birds sh*t all over you just like you sh*t all over us.
Five games? Are you effing kidding us? You son of a motherless goat.
I can’t believe this guy wore a Rays jersey that long. Whatever the opposite of retiring a number is, I hope that is what the Rays do to number 24.
At this point, if somebody said the Rays could bring back Manny or Pat Burrell to DH for the rest of the season, I would walk to San Francisco, kidnap Burrell, stick him in the trunk and personally hand deliver him to Joe Maddon. At least that guy showed up.
OK. I feel a little better.
But one more thing….F*CK YOU MANNY!
