Manny Takes a Swing at the Red Sox

10/20/2008 10:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It was just Manny being Manny out in L.A. last night -- when the most dominating player in baseball took a shot at his old team on his way out of a nightclub.
Manny Ramirez: Click to watch
After Ramirez admitted he didn't even watch game 7 of the A.L.C.S. featuring his former team the Boston Red Sox, Manny was pretty damn happy when he found out they lost!

Dude also laughed when we asked him about re-signing with the Dodgers -- even for $100 mil.

I don't know what he's laughing at, the "MOST DOMINATING PLAYER" got his butt handed to him, his old team did a little better.

Boston isn't missing Manny at all. Jason Bay has a much better attitude then Manny. Yes Manny is a good player but when you have a crappy attitude that brings the rest of the team down, see ya......

And just wait until he is signed on to whatever team, his attitude will show and there won't be anything anybody can do about it. It was worth the money not to have Manny in the playoffs. At least Boston took it to 7 games (unlike the Dodgers!).

A lot of Boston doubted the trade when it first happened. The idea of losing "Manny being Manny" was a bit of a hard pill to swallow. But when the fans started to think about what Manny had actually contributed this year and how Jason Bay immediately demonstrated that this was not one-sided trade, we stopped missing Manny altogether.
No team needs a divisive player who spends a large part of the time claiming illnesses he doesn't have, refusing to run out hits which might be home runs but usually weren't and failing to make routine plays in the outfield. The Manny up through the end of 2007 would have been missed, the Manny of 2008, not so much.
Hearing that Jason Varitek and Mike Lowell both said "trade him" after polling the rest of the team, says a lot. That the manager told the general manager the same thing, says that trading Manny was a good idea no matter how good a player he has been in the past. And the fact that as soon as he started playing for the Dodgers, his batting average and fielding percentage both went up says we didn't need him anymore.
Manny thought, as recently as last week, that Red Sox Nation still loved him. Maybe it finally got through to him that we stopped loving him almost as soon as he was traded. Since, no more than 2 weeks ago, Manny said he hoped the Red Sox would do well in the post season, this sounds a lot like sour grapes to me.

Go Sox

Would you expect him to say anything else? Good luck to any team unfortunate enough to pick him up next year!!!!!!

Tracy, are you serious? You are going to say that the Bo Sox are better off without Man Ram? Your stance that Boston lasted more games than the Dodgers is weak. The Dodgers aren't a good team, but with Man Ram they were able to do what they did this year. I think he is an idiot, but if you actually believe the things you are writing, then so are you. It's just too bad that anyone living or born for the next twenty years won't see the Bo Sox hit another World Series in their life time.

By the way...Jason who? Is he the best Boston has to offer now?

Dean (#7) - I'm saying the Sox are better off without Manny!!!! No question! Granted, he's a good player, when he FEELS LIKE PLAYING!! Never saw a grown man act more like a cry baby in my life!!!!!!

Jason Bay - remember the name!

Dean, yes I am serious. We made it far enough for me to be happy WITHOUT Manny and his attitude. I believe what I am writing and as far as I'm concerned I'm not an Idiot, but you Dean, seem to be uneducated about Manny and his history with the Redsox. Take a look at Baseball Junkie's post and that may educate you a bit more.

Also, I never said Manny isn't talented or took anything away from how he plays. His time was up in Boston and is is NOT missed by MOST Red Sox fans.

Manny is a big cry baby. Granted he is a good ball player, Most dominating I say not. His attitude sucks and he needs a hair cut. Looks like an idiot and sounds like on too. Any team that picks this jerk up is destined to fail.

Boston would've gotten into the world series if they had Manny on their team. Boston only lost by a few runs, runs Manny would've very likely driven in. For those who think Boston doesn't need Manny - they're just sore losers because they lost him. Just like Boston fans do whenever a player migrates from their team. Bitter much?

Bitter? No! We've got too many great players to put up with Manny's crap!!

If he's so good, how come the Dodgers aren't in the World Series????
