IT WILL BE DIFFERENT THIS TIME by ST
I don't care if you watch TV or movie dramas or the world of sports. There is a mentality among those who border on the desperate that the rules of society and logic don't apply to them. One theory says the true definition of insane is repeating the same actions over and over again but expecting a different result. We see it in abusive relationships. And it's front and center with certain players. I give you Manny Ramirez. Regardless of the team he plays for, eventually it will end in misery with a complete lack of professionalism on his part and a childish, selfish attitude. Then why do I think the White Sox are taking a good risk by bringing him on board for the remainder of this year? Well, I'm on board ONLY if it's for the rest of 2010. They get into anything beyond this season they deserve the aggravation and idiocy coming their way. Actually with guys like Manny or Terrel Owens, the short term is brilliant. Ramirez is playing for a new contract. If he in fact can't rake like we've seen previously, once the Chisox wrap he's a memory. If he's motivated for a month he can carry an offense like few others. Manny is a fun night, not a long term relationship.
