Manny being Manny

In case you missed it, Manny Ramirez hit a monster home run on a 3-2 pitch from Jensen Lewis in last night’s game. It was a solo shot, the third consecutive home run in the inning for the Red Sox. However, the Indians still held the lead at 7-3 after the home run, but to Manny it was as though he just hit a walk-off home run. He stood in the batter’s box, arms raised, relishing this experience for a good five seconds before he started trotting around the bases. The haughty nature of Manny was present in all its glory in this instance. I think it was a great home run, but ultimately it didn’t help his team. They are now down 3-1 in the series, and on the brink of elimination. There’s talk of “pressure situations” and “2004” in the clubhouse, but let’s face it, this isn’t 2004. The way Manny acted after his home run makes the victory of the Indians in that game that much sweeter, but right now the focus is on the futile home run by Ramirez. And I guess there isn’t that much more to say other than it was Manny being Manny.
