Manny Ramirez: You can’t get your money with a syringe.
Sorry to break into your pre-Sandwich series meditation, but breaking Manny Ramirez news!
Turns out, he’s the Dodgers’ biggest unsecured creditor.
Unpaid from the initial $45 million.
Yet ANOTHER reason Manny should have swallowed the drama and picked up a bat in those final days in Boston.
Aren’t you sorry now?
We’re not, Manny. See, we’re needle-free in OUR dugout. Glad, glad, glad to see you go.
McCourt has to pay up by June 30. Or else.
Don’t worry, guys. The world is horrible. I’m sure he’ll get his money.
While hilarious, awkward, awful and embarrassing to the sport of baseball (all at the same time, mind you), this does accomplish something quite irritating. It brings Scott Boras’ name back into the news:
Somehow, I think Boras will still get paid.
Really, don’t let Manny troubles pull at your heartstrings, all you Manny sympathizers. He still gets a check, regardless of whether he gets anything out of this McCourt drama. Your favorite hormone pusher will be just fine. And we all know it’s going to be fine. The money will be paid. The headlines will irritate us for a little while and then they (like YOU Manny) will fade into obscurity.
SAD, SAD, SAD.
Is it just me or does Manny needle his way into every baseball controversy?
It breaks hearts of people who USED to call him the Man. Every time I see his name I think about how steroids cheapen the sport. Seriously. Now I’m in a cranky mood and we have sandwiches to slay. Thanks, Frank McCourt. Thanks a lot.
