I have never been an A's fan, but have been somewhat neutral if they were not playing the Giants.

Not this year..... http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/oakland_athletics/index.html

Manny is one of the greatest hitters in MLB history and a clown to boot. Teammates like him so he can't be so bad. If he has something left in the tank it will be interesting to watch. Cespedes is also very intriguing. I don't know if there are any good Cuban hitters in MLB, their pitchers have done fairly well though- El Duque', Livan, Chapman is still a ???

" Teammates like him so he can't be so bad. "

Ask his Rays and Dodgers teammates how they feel about that.

The Rays wouldn't have to sneak in on game 162 if they had Manny the whole season.

He's left enough teammates out to dry that I can't see how he's going to be accepted again. But, it is the A's. So a bunch of star-struck tweener 22 year olds will probably just ooh and ahh over him.

His recent history has been bad, but Coco Crisp said he was good in Beantown . . . so who knows what Manny shows up. From his own mouth it sounds like his pride was hurt by his own behavior and he's determined to get that bad taste out of his mouth, so I'd bet on him being on his best behavior. But Manny being Manny . . . that's what makes it interesting.

Manny being Manny.

I wish he had not been caught using PEDs, because I always sort of enjoyed watching his antics.

Hey AT10,

Take away ManRam's PEDs, and all you're left with is a saggy pair of mantitties and a .215 batting average.

Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill are filming the sequel "Mannyball". But who plays Manny? Whoopi Goldberg, perhaps?

"Manny is one of the greatest hitters in MLB history..."

I don't think so, but he was a great hitter. Not one of the greatest.

I do think the Giants should have gone for him for half a Mil. I think we might regret it, still feel he's got some gas left.

I think it would be a mistake for the Giants because they already have a playoff team, and Manny could definately have negative effects on the team not to mention the guy can field a position anymore. I am probally in the minority with you that thinks he might have some gas left though and could be a nice pickup for a team like the A's that have nothing to lose it is not like you are potentially disrupting a playoff contending locker room.
