Manny being Manny, Part 2,575,987
Sooner or later, the anti-Mannyites, who love throwing around the big word 'sycophants' (here
), are bound to get it right. Maybe they're finally right this season. But I think the Manny-being-Manny 'sycophants' and 'apologists' have a far better track record over the years for having urged people to chill out whenever Manny starts acting like Manny.

The shoving-the-old-man incident was one Manny-being-Manny too far. But I have no regrets about being a past Manny sycophant and apologist. I like the two World Series trophies. Hope this latest Manny-being-Manny furor calms down, as previous furors have in the past. I'd like to see a third World Series trophy. ...
