big_JLB:
he is a pretty crappy outfielder, but i love watching my jays play them - despite my hatred for the whole redsox organization
...but he did piss out in left field, and i cant decide if he's a huge dude for that or it only makes me hate him more

TURBO:
Joe,

I have seen highlight after highlight of his fielding miscues on espn, they are errors that don't count on his fielding %...  No, I don't watch a lot of RS games, but what I see on espn sickens me as a fan.

I don't need to justify my contempt for a MLB player.

I don't like him.

That is good enough for me.

ufojoe:
And he should have slid last night and/or knocked the catcher over. I just saw that.

But your description of his fielding is totally off. How many RS games did you watch this year?

2004 WS MVP and phenomenal post-season, clutch hitting.

So, what has he done in his life for you to judge him as a person? Say what you want about
his antics but I'm wondering if I missed something when it comes to his private life. Please
enlighten us.

TURBO:
yes, a piss poor fielder.  Misjudging flyballs, poor jumps, limpass arm...

when you get a poor jump on a ball and can't make a play, that does not effect your fielding percentage, it isn't an error.  Same thing with misjudging flyballs by coming in on a ball over your head, or taking your first step back on a ball that lands in front of you, those are all mental errors that do not effect your fielding %, and this guy makes a ton of those mistakes.

He is a selfish turd, puts himself in front of the team, takes days, even weeks off for no apparent reason...  He does not hustle out every ground ball, doesn't get the extra base when he should, just a poor excuse for a ballplayer, he is lucky he can hit.

for these reasons I can't stand the guy.

ufojoe:
Turbo,

A loser? A bum? A crappy person? What has he done in his life to make him all of those
things?

He probably thinks he looks cool? Huh? I think you're hanging around too many kids.

Piss poor fielder? He had two erros last year and two errors this year. He has improved a lot
from a few years ago. You don't know what you're talking about. He's no Mike Cameron in
the field but he is more than adequate.

His posing is ridiculous and caused them a base last night. But other than that, the guy
is an amazing talent and RS fans love him. His words mean nada.

TURBO:
man, I can't stand this guy...

as good as he "can" be when he decides to be, I'm glad this idiot doesn't play for my brewers.

"Why should we panic?" he said Wednesday in a rare clubhouse interview. "We've got a great team."

And then, this: "It doesn't happen, so who cares? There's always next year. It's not like it's the end of the world."

btw, nice hair...

ufojoe:
Actually, it's that care free attitude that allows him to get those huge hits under
huge pressure. He's always been like that. Nothing new. I remember talking about
this with my RS fan friend 5 years ago.

dr3z:
Thats the thing about these celeb atheletes. They really dont care. Manny is just dumb enough to say what
almost all of them feel.

In reality its the fans that are the suckers for paying inflated admission prices, beer, food, parking, just to pay for thier huge contracts.
Kind of makes you want to be a fan of the Rockies............. lol!

TURBO:
thing is, this guy gets away with acting like an ass, and for some reason, it passes with a casual "that is just manny being manny" attitude.

it's too bad, I'd like to see this idiot unemployed.
