A Few More Parting Shots at Boston From Manny

He Suffered for 8 Years. He Won. He Got Out of Here.
Video: Happy Manny: No More Suffering

"I’m in a happy place, where I wanted to be, so . . . I don’t think . . . actually, I won. I won getting out of there [Boston] because I’m in a great place. I’m in a place that I want to play. I’m in a place that I’m gonna be happy.

"My teammates, they love me. The fans love me, the way I play. Hey, sometimes it’s better off to have a two-year deal in a place that you’re gonna be happy, than have an eight-year deal in a place that you’re gonna, you know, suffer." -- 3.5.09, Manny puts a Hollywood spin on his presser

Shaughnessy: Lip Trouble (And Hip Trouble)

"There you go, Sox fans. Manny was suffering while you were cheering for him. He was suffering when the Sox paid him $160 million. It must have been hell, making all that cake, hearing the applause, and seeing little kids and big dads wearing his No. 24 Sox jersey. I guess we'll never know how hard it was to win two World Series, playing in front of baseball's best fans in baseball's best ballpark. It must have been tough to face zero sanctions or team exposure when he repeatedly quit on his team." ---- 3.5.09, Shaughnessy on Manny and A-Rod
