Alternate Headline: RAYS PATCH HOLES WITH OLD SOX
My cousin, John, once referred to Manny Ramirez as “Jesus in Cleats”. At the time, Manny was being Manny in a Red Sox uniform.
After Johnny Damon rudely departed for the Yankees, it was said that he looks like Jesus, acts like Judas and throws like Mary.
Well, it’s reunion time at Tropicana Field for our former “idiot” friends, Manny and Johnny. They will be reunited as teammates but, this time, wearing the uniform of the Tampa Bay Rays. The former Devil Rays, that is, and how appropriate. Good luck boys — and don’t forget to say your prayers — especially before you face the Red Sox.
P.S. Any bets on how long it takes Manny to wear out his welcome?
