I'll cut you Reyes, I'm a gansta biatch. I think Jerry Manuel's gonna handle the press a good deal differently than Willie did.

That was weird...

"Gangsta's on the field, Ladies on the bus."

Whatever works. The New York *3 innings of offense then mail it in* Mets just *gasp* made a come back last night. Against K-Rod too.

/Now they'll probably get swept by Colorado

Brooklyn Irish Mets Fan: Against K-Rod too

I hope that, one day, there will be a significant ballplayer named Manny Rodriguez. It will be my solemn duty to make sure he is called "Man-rod."

Or we could just start calling Manny Ramirez "Man-ram."

I thought he was making a reference to Paul Pierce.

Pro athlete gets attacked with a knife, pro athlete eventual wins title.

It's just a matter of time before the equation gets well known.

A college friend of mine went to high school with Jerry Manuel's kid, and he got us some great tickets once. Too bad it was to a White Sox game. Can't complain though, bad baseball is still baseball :P

I don't know when you went to high school, but unless you are 116, the Cubs sucked.

Or if he's between the ages of 14 and 20. I don't know if you've heard (hey, it's just baseball) but the Cubs are 1st in the National League. Hell, they have the same number of wins as Boston.

Reading further into his post, hachijuhachi would have to, indeed, be a boy wonder for my previous scenario to work. 'Doh!

Whatever works. It's gotta be better than Willie's approach to young players, which was to treat them as if they had just stepped off some alien spaceship.

Or Pedro Ramirez so we can call him P-Rod...

That's what I've been calling Manny for about five years. I just now realized its connotation. Damn.

How did i not hear about this? What an insane thing to say. im sure the Mets front office's a-holes puckered up a bit when they heard that quote.

I was expecting something along the lines of Manny's "I play to win, I'm a gangster" quote but after reading the article....

"I told him next time he does that I'm going to get my blade out and cut him. I'm a gangster. You go gangster on me, I'm going to have to get you. You do that again, I'm going to cut you right on the field"

In what context does that not sound completely insane?
