I just watched the Manny interview on ESPN and I have to reiterate how great he is. He's quirky, has an amazing swing, and is up there as one of the best hitters in baseball history. No matter what you say, this guy is entertaining. He puts derriere's in seats and always makes for a good story. Tonight's ESPN segment is just another one of those circumstances:
Manny was asked about the prospect of playing for the Yankees and if he was upset that they did not pursue him. Manny appeared unfazed and admitted the Yankees signed the better guy in big-stick, Mark Texeira.
When the reporter asked why, Manny had this to say:
He's young, plays good defense, and is a handsome guy.Classic episode of Manny being Manny.
