Here's a story of some well deserved, really bad baseball karma.
Manny Ramirez' selfish exit from Boston last season was weird, wrong, and painful to watch for any baseball fan.
But imagine being a Red Sox fan.
Having a guy you've been pulling for for years, maybe even idolized, suddenly saying he's not making enough scratch and then deciding to half-ass it on the field?
You'd want him arrested.
You'd hate the guy FOREVER.
And now, Manny Ramirez finds himself in a position where teams are reluctant to try and sign him because hell, he might just decide one day the contract isn't good enough and pull a Boston.
"Some general managers have said privately, a great concern they have about Ramirez is that if you give him a deal of two or more years that is worth far less than he thinks he deserves, you run the risk of having a very unhappy Manny. As the Red Sox can attest, that didn't work out so well in the end."
