Rice Rips Manny

An ironic phrase is seen in the backround at left on a FedEx truck that just happened to be driving by as Red Sox leftfielder Manny Ramirez, (left), gets a hug from another legendary Boston leftfielder, Jim Rice (right)

This Comes Right Out of Left Field ...

Jim Ed Rice: Manny's Not a Leader; Or Really Part of the Team

"Manny Ramirez is really not a part of the team, heís in the back, in the trainerís room, not really taking a leadership role. If he was a leader, he would be with the rest of his team and honestly, over the last couple of years, he hasnít been a leader and thatís not very good. Now, I donít know if this is true, but Manny Ramirez may be making a big deal over some things so he can become a free-agent. You heard his comments, if he becomes a free-agent, he may be able to make some more money and maybe heís trying to piss off someone with the Red Sox so, at the end of the year, he can maybe get some more money and some more years if he becomes a free-agent." -- 7.29.08, Jim Rice, XM Radio's "The Show"
