Manny Being Manny is no longer in Boston! Its feels Strange. This Thread is is for YOU Boston fans to either pay your respects, or bash him for the last time.......


Basically Red Sox Nation, If you had one Sentence to say to Manny now that he's gone, What would it be???? Just curious on how many thank you's vs F- You's he gets!


Whats your last word???

As much as I wanted him gone it certainly will be weird not seeing his antics in LF. I really can't say I'm happy that we got rid of his production, or even the way he was in the clubhouse. The players loved him, the fans loved him, and despite what he said, the front office loved him. But this time he took it too far, and I will sure miss him.

I think it's unfortunate that he was sent off this way, without a proper thanks from the fans. But he brought it upon himself. I look forward to see Manny thank us all in the paper in a few days :)

There would be no bashing or anything close to bashing from me, I still love Manny. My last sentence would go...Thank you for everything you did for us Manny, I will miss you and good luck wherever you go (as long as it's not the Yankees:D).

Manny was..... different to me. He was certainly outspoken, and although it might have been controversial for the most part, he proved himself on the field. Im gonna have to get used to not seeing Manny in a Red Sox uniform anymore. I loved watching him play against the Yankees. He may have acted foolish at times, but he was a true player. I'll miss ya Manny, good luck in LA!

I can only imagine the AL East teams are having a riot over this trade.

Manny Ramirez: RED SOX FOREVER

2X World Champion
Tremendous Power hitter
Most Entertaining player in a long time
Ill never forget the trade dealine game a couple years ago when he pinch hit for the win. i thought i was gonna go deaf in Fenway with my fam. truly unforgetbale.

Thank You Manny for everything. Good Luck in LA!

meanwhile we got a Title to defend and win again!!!!

Agreed, completely.

There is a thread in the HOF section about which hat he'll wear.

I'm all for him wearing a Indian hat and never having any sort of induction for him when he's inducted.

He's been my favorite Sox player for a long, long time now, and while his antics off the field have become horrifying in the past few months, I've always loved the way he's actually played the game (aside from his sauntering down to first base on occasion). He plays like he's having a great time being out there, has a gorgeous swing, and up until a month ago with his incident with McCormick, I've never had to go to sleep with the worry that we're going to see a Ramirez mug shot plastered on the front page of the sports section. I'll root for Manny as long as he's playing, and I wish that he has the best of luck in LA.

I actually feel the same.

I hate Manny Ramirez the person, but Manny Ramirez the player (For the most part) was unbelievable.

I'm happy to see him go because to me, it's the same situation as Nomar in 04 (That was not as bad as this), but at the same time, a little bit of me is sad because he was such a mainstay for 7 1/2 years.

Whatever. His era here is over. Time for a professional player/good teammate to enter LF.

All that I have to say is Manny, if you only had kept your mouth shut you could have retired in Boston as one of the greatest Red Sox players of all time. Now although you were still a great player for all those years, I can no longer look at you in a Red Sox uniform the same way. Good luck in LA...

Manny was fun to watch. They say baseball is entertainment and manny played a comedic role. He also could mash the ball...especially against the Yanks...I'll miss that but I wont miss him taking himself out of huge games. No reason to Bash him...he was key in the two championships...So Buenas Noche Amigo

ramirez was the world series mvp in 2004 when
the sox won their first world series in 86 years and wasn't he the guy who
guranteed last year that they would win the alcs after being down 3-1 and he
came through for them. How soon peeople forget, it is just funny to me. I think that the sox needed to give ramirez a bit more respect than that. It is funny how close they were to trading A Rod for Manny in 2004 and how manny won the world series aginst the cardinals for them.

Ramirez will likely go to the hall in a red sox hat and for them to treat him this way was pretty low.

What I think I'll remember most about Manny is that to me, he was the trump card. I'm not sure if I can explain this but you always knew you had a good offense just because Manny Ramirez was in the lineup. No matter who was batting in front of him he was a lock to drive in 100-130 runs. Year in and year out he was the one guy in this lineup that went 2-4 in his sleep.

One of the greatest hitters in Red Sox history, I'm sad it had to end this way.

But dont go dissing the team that has paid you 168 million dollars and the team and fanbase that has fell in love with you. You acted like a child and I hope you continue to be an *******, sign with the Yankees, and then break a leg or two. F#CK YOU!

Manny was disrespected by the organization. BoSox treated him like he was a problem child when he was actually the reason they won a World Series after 86 years. Manny did so much for the Redsox and then they try to treat him like they did him a favor. It's ok Boston. It'll be another 100 years before you win a World Series and we can start talking about your new "Manny Ramirez" curse.

I advise you, If you don't know what you're saying, don't talk.

The front office treated him how he wanted to be treated. Asked for a trade, Theo looked for a trade. Manny wanted to sit, he sit. Manny wanted to push down old sercrateries, he did, and while anyone else would have been suspended, he was just fined. Boston treated him like a baby "what do you wan't, we'll get it for you". "Ok Manny, you can sit today".

If you have no knowledge on the situation, please don't chime in.

I have two very very different opinions on this situation....

My first is it doesn't feel like a huge loss since I know it was for the best....but I go back to seeing these highlights of Manny with the Sox...and then you think how it won't be that way again. We will never see Manny smiling with that grin and doing stupid things.


My second opinion....we are making it seem like this guy is dead. We are saying farewell wishes and remembering the good times and forgetting the bad? I feel like im at a funeral knowing I will never see this guys face alive again.


That being said....it's good to see Manny go...sad....but good. We will see this guy plenty on Sportcenter in the next few months...many of the times making us think...thank god he's not our problem anymore.


Just a realllllly crazy wild thought....Manny signing with the Sox after this season and they outbid the Yankees....that could be very weird. Manny begging to be back with a world series champ and his buddy Big Pappi.

i feel the same way. manny was one of my favorite players on the team. there is no one that will bring what manny brought to the sox.... his prolific swing, (mostly) awesome antics, fun personality.... but it was his time to go. i thank manny for helping us get rid of the curse... not once but twice. i hope he brings good things for the dodgers (they are my nl team, but far second compared to the red sox).


another note:
i would be so disappointed if he signed with the yankees during the offseason... though it might be good because it would turn my current man-crush on him into pure hatred and heartbreak :(

manny obviously did some great things at boston, but if anybody wants to say that boston treated him badly on his way out the door, they need to understand that manny brought it all on himself. if he would've kept his mouth shut then maybe his departure could've been amicable.

instead, he had to spout off at the mouth much like pedro martinez did when he left. and all that tells me is that both pedro and manny are classless. at least nomar knew that he plays in a sport that's strictly business. manny needs to grow up.

Manny, you were a lot like dating the girl with "a great personality." We really enjoyed our time together and were able to excuse missing time with others because we knew what sweet rewards were in store when we did, but at the same time we hated ourselves and tried not to get caught with you. Finally when you starting making demands and swinging at members of the family it was time to go.

You had the prettiest swing in your generation but you disrespected the game. You ran slower down the first base line on an infield grounder than you did on a home run trot. You raised your arms to celebrate home runs better than you did to catch fly balls.

But you sure could hit. We'll appreciate all the hitting you did, particularly in the playoffs. You were an instrumental part of two World Series championships and the team would not have been the same without you. I wish you could have been part of the team just a little bit longer but when you began playing for yourself and your next contract you abandoned your team.

Good luck in LA, a place where earning your $100M contract might be a lot harder than you think.


Agreed, completely.

There is a thread in the HOF section about which hat he'll wear.

I'm all for him wearing a Indian hat and never having any sort of induction for him when he's inducted.

The HOF thing is a pretty interesting question. I did a quick run through his career stats and he's almost perfectly split down the middle regarding his production for CLE and BOS. The scale tips slightly to BOS but when you factor in the fact that his first two "seasons" in CLE were less than an MLB season combined it's pretty impressive stuff. I remember watching him in (Space) 1999 and cheering him to break the single season RBI record. That was an absolutely amazing season.

In the end, though, it'll be the two WS titles that put a BOS hat on him.


ramirez was the world series mvp in 2004 when the sox won their first world series in 86 years and wasn't he the guy who guranteed last year that they would win the alcs after being down 3-1 and he came through for them. How soon peeople forget, it is just funny to me. I think that the sox needed to give ramirez a bit more respect than that. It is funny how close they were to trading A Rod for Manny in 2004 and how manny won the world series aginst the cardinals for them.

Ramirez will likely go to the hall in a red sox hat and for them to treat him this way was pretty low.

I hate the Manny WS MVP argument. There was only one game in serious jeopardy in 2004 and Manny was not the difference in that game (Bellhorn was, and his numbers for the WS were close to Manny). The 2004 team won the WS and it was the dominant pitching that earned the title. Since no pitcher pitched more than once they couldn't give the MVP to one of them so they turned to the biggest name with good numbers.

BTW, it was Kevin Millar who said "they better not let us win tonight because if they do we're going to take the series" when the Sox were down 3-0 to the Yankees in the ALCS. How soon people forget indeed.


Manny was disrespected by the organization. BoSox treated him like he was a problem child when he was actually the reason they won a World Series after 86 years.

It'll be another 100 years before you win a World Series and we can start talking about your new "Manny Ramirez" curse.

I suppose it may look that way from the outside. When you "live with" Manny for a few seasons in the LA area (assuming he signs out that way) you may see things differently. He's always seemed a bit aloof and teammates and the organization have constantly had to make excuses for his erratic behavior. It finally reached a tipping point this year.

While I generally disagree with the writer, here's a good summary (http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/articles/2008/08/01/going_going_gone/) of what "Manny Being Manny" meant this year. A good deal of it is just beyond the pale. Manny did it all himself -- the organization did not spin it (though they are masters at that).

Finally, what more "respect" should the team showed him? They paid him $168M. For Manny, that is respect. He demanded 'respect' in the form of an early decision on his options even though he'd signed away that privilege. He demanded "respect" of determining his next-next employer by threatening not to waive his NTC unless he could become a FA. He has shown that "respect" is measured in dead presidents and he's been respected 168,000,000 times by the Red Sox, more than any other player in its more-than-a-century history.

For that he owed the team some respect.

After reading several articles today about him not showing up for kids with cancer events it made me sick. He had to walk 5.7 seconds to the tent setup for the kids and he still didn't show up. He did that for 6 years.......no show.

Then last year he didn't show up to go to Walter Reed to visit with soldiers...

he sucks....plain and simple. You will now read about all kinds of things never mentioned because they hid them. He was a bona fide selfish little prick. I can actually detest people with that mentality. Me first.....I'm great...look at me...pretty much settles my opinion.

Thanks for the RINGS though.

Manny,

As a Red Sox fan I feel compelled to tell you I appreciate the numbers you put up and the WS rings you were a major part of obtaining. I can also tell you I know first hand what it's like to be in a relationship when one person devotes everything they have to the other with a unbelievable force, while the other person walks all over them.

I love you, I love you, You love me, You hate me.. we're all used to it. Thanks for the time, happy to see you go.

So in closing. Good luck with the giant contract.

**** you *******.

Love,
Me

It's just nice to see a guy who (at least used to) only cares about playing baseball. It's too be he got money hungry at the end of his career and forced his way out.

It was great while it lasted, But time to go, You will look back someday and realize Boston was the best place you ever played in your career. The FANS loved you and probably will forever. I wish you the best with the Dodgers, (2-months) and then look and see what you get next year for money and from what team and see how you act and if they can put up with it. :


Manny you are a great player and HOF no doubt.:clap:

Manny, thank you for all the good times. Thank you for beasting on the Yankees every time we played. Thanks for being a HUGE HUGE reason the Red Sox having 2 World Series rings in 4 years. Thanks for giving us many memories. With that said his antics and shenanigans have been bringing the TEAM down this year and he had to go. You dont push down older employees. You dont call out management. You dont pull your self out of an important game against the yankees. you dont say the the Sox dont deserve you. You dont half *** it down the base paths in a no hitter. Good Bye Manny and Thank You.

P.S. i cant wait to see what Jason Bay does tonight against Oakland.

^^Thats just stupid...Manny was PART of why we won. But dont say HES THE REASON. those world series wins were GREAT GREAT team effort. No one person can win a series. How can anyone say sox organization disrespected Manny. We've giving him a free pass on sooo much over the past 8 years.he shoulda been fined, or suspended plenty of times an nothing ever happened.

Sad......plain and simple all this adulation for a loser.

"Of course, there was one Sox player who couldnít be bothered to visit the kids because he never can be bothered. The kids loved him, but he didnít give a damn about them. Thatís how it works in Manny Ramirez [stats]í world. You serve him or you serve no purpose at "

Yet another reason why the Boston Herald is a miserable publication. I'm not going to defend Manny's character against that article - it's not possible - but to decide to sling **** at him the day after he gets traded is just disgraceful, regardless of the guy's character.

Thank you for the rings, the 500th, the high five, the wall visits, cutting off throws, giving bronson the corn-rows, losing an earing while sliding, Requesting Good Times :smoking:, the pinch hit game winning RBI single after the 05 trade deadline, the E-Bay postings and lastly Thank you for letting us all know that Jeter's playing Golf and what you're doing is better! :worthy:

imo #24 (along with #14) should be retired by the Sox. A Dwight Evans & Jim Rice night at Fenway would be cool.

He always complained about the Media and how they treated him. They obviously had things they wanted to say, but never said them out of respect that he was an active player on their local team. He acted like a child and forced his way out. Now they can stop keeping things closed up and actually post them.

HUH? They explained why he had to go. Like it or not there will be a ton more stories about him coming out. If he left Boston in good graces which was easy, he would get treated as such.

He didn't. :rolleyes:

Regardless of a guys character? please get off the soap box.

Manny you've been my favorite player for a long long time. I always loved how you played the game with a layed back attitude. I will miss you. It looks very weird seeing you in a Dodger uniform
