He's the Manny

To repeat my sentiments from Saturday . . .

It doesn't take much to make me grateful that The Trade never happened. The first shot from Ft. Myers of Manny Ramirez - whoops, make that World Series MVP Manny Ramirez - wearing his disarmingly goofy smile should do the trick just fine.

Sure enough, the trick's done. Manny's in the house, and suddenly, I find myself grinning like a jackass, savoring the recurring flashbacks to last year and becoming increasingly geeked/giddy as I ponder what joys the new season might bring.

Yeah, life is good, Sox fans. The World Series MVP has arrived, and spring should be pulling into the parking lot at any moment.

It's days like these when this Sox fan can't help but daydream about repeating something else.
