Hip Hip Hooray!

The Sox have a great young pitcher! Damn, hard to believe they could pull this off GM-less.
Manny, Manny, Manny. What is up, dude? Selling the homestead in advance of a trade. Guess we get the message. Sorry to see you go, but I'll take Abreu if the GM-less team can swing it. Some protection for Ortiz is all I want from any trade.
I never cared whether you did weird stuff on or off the field; you are the man, when it comes to hitting. The other stuff is irrelevant to most everyone except some self-proclaimed baseball purists. See the ball, hit the ball, catch the ball (mostly), and throw the ball. You did not take drugs, get into car accidents, hit the strip clubs, mouth off about teammates, complain about fans, blah blah blah, so I just did not care about the things you did do. Pee in the left field hidie-hole all you want. Just hope we don't miss you more than we expected.
