MMMMMMM. Chacon pt2? Jackass Boogaloo?

    Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the latest episode of "That's Just Manny Being Manny!"

    In this edition, witness Manny Ramirez's latest controversy as a report in the Providence Journal says he pushed Boston's traveling secretary, Jack McCormick, to the ground after a dispute over his request for 16 tickets in Houston.

    Key plot points include the situation escalating with Manny's quick temper ("Just do your job!" he reportedly said), the two being separated by the ever-present "onlookers" and the closed-door apology from Ramirez to McCormick, a mea culpa the Red Sox hope will solve everything until the next installment of TJMBM.

Well now. Obviously if the traveling manager had just done his job in the first place Manny wouldn't have had to have gone Manny. It's all right there in the article.

Maybe Tyler Chicken has some trade bait.

Chacon never drove in 140 runs in a season, if you know what I mean.. Does Manny have one more $20 million option year to work for in the second half, or is he headed toward Free Agency?

George Costanza would have never taken that crap from his players!

Ok, maybe he would, or go take a nap under his desk.
(definition of a good sitcom- you're still talking about it 10 years after the finale)

So has Manny gone from loveable goofball to angry loveable goofball?
I swear this guy must have a writing staff hired to dream up new stunts. (How's this sound? After the catch, you hi-five a fan! Pretty wild stuff).

Can't a guy like Manny afford to just BUY 16 tickets from the box office if the secretary doesn't come through?

I don't know it this is just 'Manny being Manny'. First, he goes after Youkillis in the dugout during the Rays brawl. Now he's attacking a secretary over tickets. Manny can be described as a lot of things, but physically aggressive or even violently threating isn't usually what I think about when I think about him. Maybe it's just me, but he seems a changed man this year and not in a good way, either.

Glad you started a thread on this. I started on last week, but when I hit "submit," either the W was down or my connection was down, and I lost the whole post.
