    I don't really care between the Sox and the Rox. Eric Hinske is a former Razorback (played up there in Wichita in the 98 regional) and is a bench player for Boston.

    Another Wichita connection to the Tribe is Ryan Garko was the 2003 Johnny Bench Award winner.

    From the replay, Lofton was completely safe at second base (called out).

    Don't know, but that could have been a rallying point for the Indians.


    Too bad.

    Guess I'm a Rockies fan now.

    That was about the best rundown I've ever seen. Was is Willie Mays who made a similar catch years ago at Boston.

    Anyway, Props to EW and CB.

    We've still got Mirabelli to root for.

    Casey and the Indians had a rough night. From the get-go they are on the ropes. They hung in and should have tied the game at 3, but I give the young players for Boston their props. Pedroia and Ellsbury came up big in those last two games. Youkilis was great.

    Coco Crisp made a hell of a catch to end that game, and although he had a rotten series, all he will remember, and all anyone will remember of his performance, is that catch.

    Also since this thread is about Wedge... i think he has done a great job in cleveland and hope he has a great career... except for the game tonight. Also i wanna give big props to Casey "at the plate" Blake... people are now seeing what a great all around baseball player this guy is

    I am a huge Boston fan... that being said i am sure that comment did tick some fans off but not the majority of the Red Sox Nation. If you are apart of the Nation you know what to expect from Manny. His is a great hitter (2nd best in the league behind A-Rod) and a clubhouse/local favorite. He also makes bone head plays and doesnt hustle as much as he should. But you must take the good with the bad... he may not get much respect outside of the Nation but he doesnt care... and neither do we The more people and fans get on the better he plays. So keep saying he is bad for the game or whatever and we'll see you in the Series.

    my opinion he is good for the game... he has a positive impact on the young players in the clubhouse and with the help of papi they create a great atmosphere to play in. he studies hours of pitching film so when he goes into an atbat he knows what to expect and the results speak for themselves.

    If I was a Boston fan that quote would have pissed me off, mainly the part: who cares. I know some people who care....the people who pay your salary.

    I have more of a problem with his little HR antics than the quote. TO be honest I didn't think the quote was all that bad. He basically said we are going to give it our all, and if that doesn't get it done, at least we tried. THe quote was blown WAY out of proportion by the media, which is typical. Having said that , I think ManRam needs a couple of shots to the earhole. I find it ironic that Beckett got all peeved at Lofton "flipping" his bat after he was walked the other day when Manny is the epitome of show boating.

    Guys like that are an abomination to the game.

    I’m not a fan of Manny. He’s your textbook modern day spoiled athlete. Red Sox fans don’t give a damn about anything other than him consistently leading the league in RBIs. I’m surprised no one has mentioned his quote earlier in the week in which he said (paraphrasing) in regards to being down 3-1, “who cares…there’s always next season.”

    Does anybody else get sick of the whole "Manny being Manny" BS. I don't think Manny could play for Eric Wedge. I mean he is an amazing hitter and I guess you can put up with some stuff when he rakes like he does, but it gets a little old and I don't think Wedge would be able to put up with it. He got rid of Milton Bradley for not running hard, so I don't think he would put up with all of Manny's antics. I guess if he plays for your team you overlook it, but not being a fan of Boston his antics are tired. But man can he hit.

    Did you all get a load of what Manny did tonight? Hit one that bounced off the top of the wall in right center and back into the field of play. It was ruled to not be a home run. Because Manny Cadillaced it to first base, that's all the further he got. It was a 390' single.

    I was OK with Ramirez, thought he was "colorful" and a hell of a hitter. But this really leaves a sour taste in my mouth. The game is tied, his team is down 3 games to 1 and facing elimination and he's showboating? RUN Dummy!
    You obviously didn't know ManRam before yesterday.
    So this was just "Manny being Manny?"
