For most guys I’d be saying how do you even dream something like this up? I mean, he makes a running catch in a big spot and somehow in his dead run to the wall he spots a Red Sox fan in the Camden Yards outfield and gives a high five.
With Manny Ramirez, I’m not even surprised. It would seem that Manny, albeit funny and a guy who marches to the beat of his own drummer; is about at the mentality level of a really smart golden retriever. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Ramirez is fun to watch, he always has been. I loved him when he was an Indian.
Does anyone else remember my personal all-time favorite Manny moment when he was the fucking cut off man for Johnny Damon’s outfield throw? (Watch around the :57 mark in this video to see it!)
