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.

If Manny had played hard..or even played in some of the early and mid season games that he opted out of, The Red Sox may have won a few more of those games and gained homefield advantage for the play-offs...giving them an edge over the Rays. As it stands, I think Jason Bay is a better overall player, team-mate and has more future ahead of him than Man-E.

Baseball endures as does Manny's classlessness and stupidity.

Whoa! Sure, I miss Manny - the old, lovable Manny - not the one who knocks sixty-something year-old guys to the ground. The Sox are better off without the distraction that Manny had become. Sure, Manny would've probably gotten some key hits but, I watched Bay make some pretty impressive catches in leftfield that I know Manny wouldn't have come close to - or even bothered to do more than just saunter over and pick the ball up. So long Manny, thanks for '04 and '07.

Denise Desaulniers, I don't know what games you've been watching but they clearly weren't MLB. It's because of his attitude that we got rid of him, he doesn't have attitude because we got rid of him. Get your cause and effect straight.
Jason Bay came into Fenway and had a 7 game hit streak including some home runs. He also made plays in the outfield that Manny straight out missed because he didn't pay attention to what was happening in the game. When he was on is game Manny is a great player. Unfortunately he is extremely inconsistent.
There is no single player who was the magic for the Red Sox. We couldn't have won without 'Tek who is arguably the best game-calling catcher in the game today. He can't hit as well as he did before he broke his elbow a couple of years ago but who is. We couldn't get anywhere without Big Papi, a great hitter, a great first baseman and a great guy in the clubhouse. How do you think we would have done without Mike Lowell last year, he was only the World Series MVP, not Manny. Or without Youkilis the gold glove first baseman, or Pedroia, or Drew or Ellsbury? And don't forget Beckett, Schilling and Lesgter. Need I go on? The reason the Red Sox won last year was because everyone contributed. One of the reasons we lost this year was that several of our key players were hurt and the rest of the team just couldn't take up the slack. It happens. As we say up here, Wait till next year. Fans who never gave up hope during an 86 year drought aren't going to worry about one year. At least not true fans. Any fair weather fans can go back where they came from.

Go Sox
