Manny Sits? Good Move! And We Must Not Let The Yankees Clinch This Weekend. NO WAY
I suggested just this in a previous post. This, from today's Globe, and then a comment from your writer, me....
"Red Sox manager Terry Francona said after a closed-door meeting with Manny Ramírez yesterday that ``there's a chance" Ramírez, who has been diagnosed with patellar tendinitis in his right knee, will not play the rest of the season."
Peter here, and this, if true, would be a wise decision. Why risk further injury when Manny can have his knee scoped and cleaned and be ready in plenty of time for next season, where he will be batting fourth, right behind our Big Papi? Yes, a wise move....Now it's on to New York. Where I know the team will do its damndest to not let the hated Yankees clinch while playing us. That would be ugly. And right now that's the last thing I'd like to see. Sure, they'll clinch, but they'll be playing someone else when they do. MARK MY WORDS.
