That was a great game. A marvelous triumph over the Yankees. My favorite part?
Oh, how I love to relive that home run theft scene. The look on Cairo's face after he ran all the bases, only to find out that he did nothing more than burn a few calories: priceless. And Manny, with the lovable grin and two-finger point. That was good stuff.
So, why bring this up now? What's the sigificance? Both Manny and Miguel made baseball news in the last day or two. Ramirez, claiming that he now wants to stay in Boston and Cairo, signing again with the Yanks as a utility infielder. Cairo evidently told Cashman that he'd be willing to play outfield positions, too. Hey, Miguel, how about curbing the old enthusiasm, huh? If you start sucking, they might just give you consession duty.
