Goodbye, Mr. Manny "Being Manny" Ramirez

Well, you can finally say that Manny is gone.  It's now all "post-Manny."  We also lost Craig Hansen and Brandon Moss.  All we got from the trade is Jason Bay from the Pirates.  I can tell you this, he is not a Manny Ramirez.  So that can mean both good or bad.  For "Good,"  Bay will be hustling down the baselines all the time.  He also will play a better outfield.  I think he won't make a fuss in the clubhouse either.  The "Bad" is that Bay can't hit like Manny Ramirez.  He also probably can't entertain us that much like Manny. 

I was listening through my iPod and I found a song that matches this situation.  The name of the song is "I'm Gonna Find Another You" by John Mayer.  I'm going to tweak the lyrics a little to make this song for Manny and not a lover, ha ha.


It's really over
You made your stand
You got us crying.
It was your plan
But when our loneliness is through,
We're gonna find another you

You take your sweaters
You take your time
You might have your reasons, but you will never have our rhymes
Sox gonna swing their way away from the blues
We're gonna find another you

When you were our slugger, No one else would do
If I'm forced to find another, I hope he doesn't act like you.
Yeah and he's nicer too, yeah.

So go on Manny
Make your little get away
My Sox pride will keep me company
And you just gave yours all away
Now I'm gonna dress myself for two
One's for me and one's for someone new
I'm gonna do somethings you wouldn't let me do
Oh we're gonna find another you

It's funny how that song just fits right in.  The Sox said that they have to let that trade go, put it in their pockets and forget about it.  It's time to start with a new player and a new approach.  The Bay Era has begun!
