Like Allan at Joy of Sox, I, too, was taken aback by the WEEI-issued “Manny Who?” signs being waved by some folks at Fenway during Sunday’s game. Have we so quickly forgotten what this man helped make possible?

Call me a Manny apologist, but in my opinion, he should be referred to in only the highest regard, and get the Dave Roberts-Orlando Cabrera-Kevin Millar treatment every time he comes to town–namely, free beer, free lodging at his choice of B.C. sorority house, and his grin and wave accepted as currency at any retail establishment in the greater Boston area.

But that’s just me.
