    Manny being Manny?

    ESPN - Report: Manny apologizes after shoving Red Sox official to ground - MLB

    Manny shoved the Traveling Secretary to the ground when he was told 2 hours prior to the game it may be difficult to get him 16 tickets.

    I'm a Yankees fan so I have something against Manny already but for it to be an apology and we're done I think shows him that this is ok.

    As a Red Sox fan it is something that shouldn't happen. The only pounding Manny should be doing is pounding the baseball out of the park. The guy is a phenom but yeah... at times he just seems a little off.

    Rome admits he has a man crush on Manny but even he had to crack on Manny for this.

    Meh. The only thing I got out of that story was I never want to be a pro team's traveling secretary. If the Red Sox are okay with it, and the traveling secretary is okay with it, I don't care.

    It's not like Manny couldn't jump onto StubHub or whatever and just buy 16 tickets. It's not like he's strapped for cash.

    I'd trade Manny for Damon in a heart beat. The guy hits the snot out of the ball.

    However, if he was the White Sox or the A's or the Braves, even the Yankees I would not be a fan of this behavior.

    I don't condone the behaviour either. This will all go in my report to Mr. Henry!

    I think I'd like to be the Assistant to the Travelling Secretary, this guy seems to like it.
