Trouble in Paradise?

Giants fans, at least me, are reacting like the munchkins of Oz after Dorothy landed on the Wicked Witch of the East. Manny Ramirez will be suspended 50 games for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug. Ah, schadenfreude.

Kawakami's take

Two questions:
1) Will Dodgers fans do the right thing and boo Manny because they are better than those idiot Giants fans who root for cheaters?

2) Will Bay Area sports writers/radio hosts who got so worked up about the Giants not signing Manny repent their lack of judgment?

Other baseball news

Alderson, Crawford and Bumgarner are headed to Double-A.

Brett Anderson's blister will keep him from making his next start, but he won't hit the DL.

Sean Gallagher will take Anderson's spot in the rotation on Saturday.

  1. Frisco Kid Says:

    A. Giants fans didn't "do the right thing" when Barry was cheating.

    B. I hated Barry because he was a fucking asshole, not because he did steroids. His indignation when people dard to question only enraged me more. Manny is a completely different case. I don't condone what he did, but I'm not gonna get that worked up about it. (Palmeiro is a similar example)

  2. Koski Says:

    No one is saying the Giants did the right thing when Barry was cheating. Dodger fans were critical of Giants fans for supporting a cheater like Barry. It's the hypocrisy that gets the blood boiling because the of course the Dodger fans will be cheering Manny when he returns.

    I know why YOU hate Barry. That's not the point.
