Manny's as good as gone for 2009


As if his increasingly inconsistent output and occasionally bad behavior weren't enough, there's this from the Boston Herald:

Manny Ramirez might get his meeting with John Henry, but the Red Sox [team stats]’ principal owner will have a hard time giving his slugger any sympathy.

Henry responded via e-mail to Ramirez’ statement in The Herald yesterday saying that he hoped for a postseason meeting with ownership to clear up their plans for his future.

“I want no more (expletive) where they tell you one thing and behind your back they do another thing,” Ramirez told The Herald. “I think I’ve earned that respect, for a team to sit down with me and tell me this is what we want, this is what we want to do.”

Last night one of the members of the Red Sox organization Ramirez hoped to meet with, Henry, gave his take.

“I find remarks that we have been anything other than completely straightforward to be personally offensive,” Henry wrote. “Manny has been a crucial part of two world championships. I do not believe we would have won either without him. He has never played a more important role than he has thus far this year.”
