Very funny, JTD.

Manny being Annie. Manny being Nanny. Now Manny being bannie.

Hey, maybe that's why he didn't sign with Oakland. Didn't want to play "small ball." And then again.....

Now, when he hits home runs, will they shout "YO DA..." and stop?

Will he sign his autographs "---ny ---irez"?

Did he start taking hCG when he saw his "Cream" was "Clear"?

Stop. Stop. This could go on all night :-). Just hope the bugger's telling the truth about passing fifteen tests over five years, then at least the World Series years are not directly implicated, but who knows. Dahk, dahk day for baseball.
