Me, Myself and I are still the only three people on the planet that Los Angeles Dodger Manny Ramirez cares about.
Once again, the oft-maligned (and rightfully so) Manny made many murmur the other night following the Dodgers’ late inning lapse in losing to the fast finishing Phillies in Game 4 of the NLCS.
Sure, the media mumbled mildly upon learning that the mercurial Manny marched off to the Dodger locker room after Manager Joe Torre replaced him with a speedier, better fielding player in the 9th inning.
However, where was the post-game outcry when it was discovered that the malcontent Manny selfishly showered while his Dodger squad squandered a slim 9th inning lead?
Why should we tolerate this nonsense?
Why didn’t Dodger teammates collectively kick Ramirez in the rear?
Why didn’t Dodger faithful slow down Southern California servers with tweets, blog posts and nasty emails excoriating this dread-locked lout?
Why did Dodger Skipper Joe Torre soften his style and succumb to the silly theory that that’s just Manny being Manny?
How unconscionable for a $20 Million+ per year Major League Baseball All-Star to slink out of the dugout and forsake finishing an NCLS game!
However, when you only think about Me, Myself and I, and the $20 Million is already in the bank, it’s easy to understand why….. that’s just Manny being Manny.
Straight talk. No static.
