No boos served

July 04, 2009

Enough already, Plaschke [June 28]. We get your point. Did Manny Ramirez cheat? Yes. Are he and baseball remorseful enough? No. Are the fans too forgiving? Yes. Are the rehab rules for suspended players too lax? Probably. Am I going to stop reading your columns? Definitely.

No boos for Manny? Boo-hoo. When is Bill Plaschke going to find something else to write about? I am no fan of Manny Ramirez, and I don't even like the Dodgers. But the more you express your outrage, especially in such a pedantic way, the more people are going to tune you out.

With steroids, the initial sinners weren't the users -- it was club ownership, the union, the commissioner's office and the press -- all of whom knew about the problem and did nothing about it. Or should have known about it, and didn't look into it -- because all of you were too lazy, or too self-interested to do your jobs.

So forgive the fans if they are sick of the whole thing and tired of the moralizing from moral midgets. We just want to watch a game.

There is nothing wrong with Dodgers fans embracing Manny and showering him with cheers upon his return. Let's ride him all the way to a World Series title. By the way, isn't Barry Bonds available? Let's sign him too!
