WOW
Manny's never really been a "clutch" hitter. I can only think of two "clutch" hits that he's had with the Red Sox. The homerun off of Zito in Game 5 of the ALDS, and the pinch-hit RBI single he had at the trade deadline last year.

Wait a sec, didn't Manny hit an extra-inning homerun off of Tanyon Sturtze at Yankee Stadium to give the Sox the lead, then Leskanic blew it in the famous "Jeter dives into the stands" game?!

True but clutch or not it's still surprising considering no matter what it's still Manny and you would think odds would say he'd hit at least one.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Why is Pena running for Nixon?! The increase in speed in that situation seems negligible and does not off-set the decrease in defense.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I can at least understand the Snow for Youk move, but the Pena for Nixon one is just dumb.

Let's go Lowell!
