Manny in the HOF? Um. No.
Oh, I know. Because it’s an off day.
No. You juice, you get caught (TWICE), you blow Cooperstown.
Seriously. It sucks. It really sucks. It sucks for Manny’s fans. It sucks for the Red Sox. It sucks for the Dodgers. It sucks for all of the teams Manny helped win. It sucks.
But it happened. Manny got caught. Not once. But twice.
We’ve already rewarded him with salary, fame and attention.
No more rewards for cheapening a sport I happen to enjoy.
You get juiced. You get caught. No Cooperstown for you. And yet blogs and sportscasters have polls up, are devoting an irrational amount of time to this debate today.
What do you think? Because to me, it’s pretty fricking straight forward. HOF isn’t just about numbers. It’s about role models. People who represent the sport and represent it well. It showcases people kids can look up to.
Not assholes with needles hanging out of their arm.
Leave that to Celebrity Rehab.
