You're a Real Man Manny!

Apparently Tim McCarver has a problem with Manny tanking it for the Sox and now playing like a MANny possessed. Big surprise coming from the baseball purest. I'm just glad the games will be on TBS. I know TBS is sloppy, but McCarver is the most biased color guy I've heard. Plus once he starts telling stories about how he caught Bob Gibson's no hitter or how he beat Ty Cobb in a tobacco spitting contest or even the one about the time he banged Elanor Roosevelt. Buck and McCarver are hands down my least favorite announcers and if his words on the Manny situation any hint of what we will hear during the potential/probable Sox vs. Dodgers World Series then we are in for a lecture. Now I'm not happy about Manny leaving or the fact that he is killing it for the Dodgers. But if your McCarver it a little late to start throwing daggers? Well I hate McCarver and most Sox fans I know are aware of bias against the Sox. McCarver just stay out of this one because the dozen games you've covered the Sox during the Manny era don't make you an expert. Shut your mouth or Fox will be forced to replace you with another announcer who hasn't been relevant in a million years. Joe Morgan.

“It’s extraordinary — the dichotomy between what he was in Boston and what he is in Los Angeles,” McCarver said. “I mean, talk about wearing out your welcome in a town, and it was a long welcome with the Red Sox [team stats]. But some of the things he did were simply despicable, “despicable — like not playing, refusing to play. Forgetting what knee to limp on. And now it’s washed, it’s gone.” - thebiglead.com

Hopefully Manny dumps his bong water all over McCarver after the Dodgers beat Philly in the NLCS.
"You're a real Man Manny!"
