Manny of the Bosox said no big thing if they did not win the series.

Oh for godssake, if you actually read his quote, which Mr. Roxy as usual has helpfully linked, he says it won't be the end of the world if the Red Sox lose. And he's RIGHT. It won't be.

Not the brightest thing to say when your team mates are fighting to win. It is not exactly a moral booster.

Tell this ( it is not the end of the world) to Red Sox fans.

If they lose tonight, I'll throw myself out my bedroom window! And since I live on the first floor, I'm afraid it won't pose much danger -- but it's the thought that counts!

It would seem as if Red Sox manager Terry Francona has a more reasoned and mature response. He said that the thing he cares about is that the guys on his team are consistent in their personal attitudes throughout the season. In other words, Francona was saying this is completely in keeping with Manny's outlook and is only a surprise to those who don't know the team very well. Perspective is EVERYTHING, Manny's is one, Francona's is another, and sports talk radio people (and guys like you, Roxy) trying to fan a controversy where there is none is yet another (less important) perspective.

And SM2, you should shut your yap you unhatched chicken counter.

I thought this was about Belle Rosen's husband Manny, from The Poseidon Adventure. Imagine my disappointment.

Saying something like that doesn't mean he doesn't WANT to win as much as his teammates do, or that he's not going to try his hardest. It means he's being realistic and has some perspective. So no, he's not "basically" saying "who cares." He's basically saying that it'll be okay if they don't win. Which it will.

Perspective obviously has no place here, em. Nor does any grounding in reality, apparently.

Manny's batting slightly over .500 in the ALCS and just got another HR stolen from him by a bum call by the officials.

I imagine most teams would kill to have players who 'suck' as badly as Manny.

(And I'm rooting for Cleveland and have watched Manny play since he was here in Canton in AA.)
