    Curt in the Car - On Manny Ramirez

    Curt Schilling was built for Boston. The only disappointing thing about Curt Schilling is that he didn’t spend his entire career with the Red Sox. Imagine what that would’ve been like. The rings he would’ve won. One can only imagine. Despite his political views, Curt Schilling is a man of the people and I love for him for that, we all love him for that.

    Even when he is not on the field playing for the Red Sox, he remains the voice of reason and the one player you can turn to get an honest assessment of the situation at hand. For example, take a listen to Curt in the Car on EEI today discussing the Manny Ramirez situation. Not only did you get honesty, but talk about passion, you can hear it in his voice.

    It is obvious from this conversation that Curt Schilling liked Manny Ramirez and thought that he was a good person, but also that there was some tremendous frustrations on the part of Curt and the rest of his teammates at the BS attitude that Manny would sometimes come to the ballpark with.

    Would things be different if Manny were in the line-up of the Boston Red Sox today? Your damn right they would be, they would be much worse. I truly am in the camp that the Red Sox would not even be contending for the AL East right now had Manny stayed with the team. Sure his bat is nice and he’s bustin ass in LA right now, but if he was still here in Boston, he would be trouble, like he apparently always was, just ask Curt.

    I agree. I love him for speaking his mind in an intelligent way. I don't always agree with him, but at least when he opens his mouth, he doesn't sound like Joey Porter. ;)

    Funny - reading the ESPN article on this, the comments were very anti-Schilling. I'm cool with it though - the guy's a mouthpiece whether he's playing or not, and more often than not, I agree with him.

    Even though the "Manny being Manny" saying is ridiculous, there could be nothing more apt to describe the weird-ass crap that he pulls. And now he's still being weird, just out of the Boston spotlight.
