My Favorite Manny Ramires anology on playing left field so far is:
"Manny careens around the outfield like a drunk running from the cops."
-Joe Buck(i think) after Manny's adventures in oufielding in Game 1 of the WS.

thedude... no quoting Buck or McCarver excpet to mock them. Aside from both being absolutely obnoxious on a personal level (was it my imagination or did Buck look like the guy from the Party Poker commercials?), could there have been a WORSE duo to broadcast the WS games? A Spankee Masterbator/Former Cardinal teamed up with the son of a Cardinals Broadcasting legend. Why not just bring in Rich Aurilia and Derek Jeter...

Tim McCarver is one of the worst human beings on the planet. No one can dispute this fact.

I think Tim McCarver is the one thing both Yankee and Red Sox fans can agree with-- he is a no-talent ass-clown

Possibly, but he's a no-talent ass clown who will get down on his knees and open wide for anyone in NY pinstripes.

To quote Rob Neyer, "Tim McCarver would have Derek Jeter's babies if he could."

As for Manny, check out this excellent 1998 link about the "Manny Ramirez virtual fielding clinic":http://www.spitter.com/spitter_101698.htm

Skillet-handed Indians outfielder Manny Ramirez has announced that he will be conducting a clinic on what he calls "Virtual Fielding" in early November. The clinic will teach youngsters the essential skills involved in Ramirez's renowned fielding philosophy, including proper positioning, tobacco-wad maintenance, and the art of falling down.

"Wait until it stops moving before you try to pick it up, which will greatly improve your chances of holding on to it."

Maybe he should be Wake's new personal catcher...

gotta disagree with you-- as a Yankee fan, I had to deal with him for a few years when he did the local broadcasts, and he took any opportunity possible to criticize anyone, just to try to make himself look smart...it's funny that if you poll any Yankee fan, they'll tell you that Buck and McCarver hate the Yanks, but if you poll any Sawx fan, they'll tell you they worship them

Ah, people making fun of Maine. How original.

So far it appears there are 4 mainiaks on this board...we are growing by leaps and bounds and we will soon take over. Fear our wrath.


Anyone know when the World Series trophy is making its way up here? :x
