I remember reading an interview with Manny a few years ago in which he said that he really wanted to be remembered for his fielding as much as for his hitting.
Well.... he is... just not in the way he wants.
Re: his hustle and lack thereof on the basepaths.... yeah, we've all seen him jog out a fly ball, but then there are the times he really sprints, runs out from under his hat, and somehow goes from first to third on a single to right...
One thing for sure: I am glad he's stilll with the Sox. Imagine the number of IBBs Papi would get without Manny backing him up?
