Manny in 2007

.296 BA, .881 OPS, 20 HR, 88 RBI in the regular season

yeah he had a great post season (well ALDC and ALCS) but I'd say Beckett was bigger

and while we're at it, Papi was the biggest reason in '04


Not taking anything away from what Manny did in Boston but it wasn't a one man show... Not even close

Papi probably has those great seasons without Manny hitting in front of him.

Manny won WSMVP almost by default. Such a quick series, there weren't many big #s. I think Foulke should've gotten it.

Somewhere Ronnie B and MK weep.
Keeping in mind that Francona would never, ever throw a player under the bus.

It was between innings of a Sunday night game in Anaheim, July 20, 2008. I was sitting at the end of the visitors' dugout when Terry Francona walked down, looked me in the eye and said, "Manny Ramirez is the worst human being I've ever met." He turned and walked back.

At the time, Ramirez was in the process of shooting his way out of Boston, and Francona had been enduring a nightmare trying to keep Manny playing. The moment just burst out, completely out of character, because Francona internalized so much to spin a cocoon around his players in a market where the Red Sox are life and death and the media takes everything personally. To the end, as frustrated and disappointed as he was in a September collapse of epic disappointments, he did his pregame and postgame news conferences and never chucked anyone under the bus.

baaahahahahaahahahaahahaaaaaa......

Maybe Manny should get Ryan Brauns lawyer. 50 game suspension eliminated...... Perhaps it was too much of a black eye for MLB to suspend the reigning MVP but I'm still stunned by this development.

Manny already had 50 of his original 100 game suspension eliminated.
