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
" 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.
Manny being Manny.
I wish he had not been caught using PEDs, because I always sort of enjoyed watching his antics.
Take away ManRam's PEDs, and all you're left with is a saggy pair of mantitties and a .215 batting average.
"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.
