EVIL BOSTON SPORTS MEDIA TAKES ONE MORE SHOT AT RUNNING MANNY OUT OF TOWN

MANNY RAMIREZ ON THE MOVE?

There they go again.

You would think by now the elitist Boston sports media would have learned their lesson. They haven’t.

The seemingly annual crusade to run Boston Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez out of town has begun anew. In today’s Boston Globe, columnist Dan Shaughnessy AGAIN villifies the guy who is chiefly responsible for the Red Sox ending their six generation World Series drought.

Shaughnessy rips Ramirez for missing ONE game against the Yankees because of a sore knee. Ramirez even had an MRI on the knee but that wasn’t good enough for Shaughnessy who called Ramirez “worthless” and “ridiculous.” 

Shaughnessy titled his annual Manny-bash “Now He’s a Guaranteed Out.” In the column, he writes, “Manny has punched his ticket out of town” and “The Red Sox have had it with Manny.” Shaughnessy even threw in the phrase, “it’s over.” Since he’s Irish he added, “Goodnight, Irene.” Since he’s a closet racist Shaughnessy threw in, “Adios, amigo.”

What’s Shaughnessy’s source for proving Manny Ramirez is a quitter? He quotes a former state treasurer who “happened” to be walking by and “spoke for many fans.” Naturally, the guy was white and Irish.

Shaugnessy’s column continues a fine tradition of Boston sportswriting which demonizes athletes for making too much money and demands they be run out of town. Like Roger Clemens, Pedro Martinez, Mo Vaughn, and Johnny Damon before him, Manny Ramirez appears to be a goner. As a matter of sheer coincidence, all of those players (except Clemens) JUST HAPPEN to be ethnic minorities. Just like the politician Shaughnessy quotes JUST HAPPENED to be walking by.

If Boston fans are truly worried about overpaid sports figures who are stealing money at their current job and should be run out of town I suggest they start with Dan Shaughnessy.

OVERPAID RACIST DOUCHE, DAN SHAUGHNESSY

    Your continual playing of the race card is eroding your credibility. How do you know Dan Shaughnessy is a closet racist? Oh yeah, because he said “adios amigo,” that pretty well proves it. And the MRI Manny had showed NO damage. You conveniently left that out of your “story.” Manny IS a slacker and calling him on it does NOT make someone a racist, er…closet racist. And just because he is a terrific player and he’s black does not make him immune to the criticisms that others get regularly from hackers who spend their day trying to come up with anything they can find to bash them on their blogs….or their newspaper columns.

    As for Johnny Damon, the Sox and their fans loved him and wanted him back, yet he chose to sign with the Yankees. Mo Vaughn? He too left for a huge contract with the Angels and his career was essentially over. Pedro? Left for the Mets for a boatload of cash and has not had a complete season since.

    And of course if Boston fans only like white guys, somebody forgot to tell Bill Russell, Robert Parish, Jim Rice and Louis Tiant. I guess they don’t read your blog. Now, I suppose that Kevin Garnett and all of his black World Champion teammates must all be headed for the Knicks.

    I’ve noticed that the only people you ever bash are white. Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Don Imus, Tom Brady, Greg Norman, Kim Kardashian, Warner Wolff, Bret Favre the PGA Tour and many others.

    Again, you lose all of what little weight any of your rants might carry when you get into race -baiting.
