Reaction: New York reacts to Manny

Manny Ramirez refused to answer any questions about his 50-game suspension yesterday in New York, immediately telling reporters “I’m not talking about anything I talked about in San Diego” as soon as he arrived at Citi Field Tuesday.

As you can imagine that didn’t go over too well with the horde of reporters waiting for him at his locker.

Interestingly, the reaction wasn’t as harsh as I expected, and I’m starting to get the feeling Manny will get off easy on this. I’m not the only one, either, Tim McCarver is outraged but how fans and the media are letting Manny off the hook, as opposed to the way Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez etc…etc were/are treated.

Pretty interesting, to say the least.

    Well, McCarver is an idiot so I don’t put much stock into what he says, but to say that he is not branded is ridiculous. I was in San Diego for that game and there was a lot of derision thrown at him. The difference with Manny, is that he has built up more goodwill than a lot of the other guys mentioned and some of them have even tested positive for steroids or PED’s.
