Quote of the Day: Plaschke on Manny's slam

0 Comments

Watching all this from the press box, I’ll admit, I got chills, and
this doesn’t mean I’ve suddenly become a big Manny Ramirez fan, because
I haven’t. No, I didn’t accept the team’s offer of a bobblehead doll.
And yes, I still believe he is a cheat who has never truly admitted or
shown remorse for his drug-policy violations.

But until proven otherwise, Wednesday’s moment was created cleanly,
and one should be able to appreciate it without buying into the man who
created it.

Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times,
grudgingly — and admirably, I might add — admitting that Manny’s
grand slam on Wednesday night was a special moment despite all of the
disapprobation he has thrown on Ramirez and the people who enjoy his
play in recent weeks.
