â†µAt least, I think Victorino was telling Hiroki Kuroda it’s cool to throw at his ribs, not at his head. But I’m not sure: He only said it 11 freakin’ times. Yes, I counted. I think you made your point, Shane. â†µ
â†µYou may have also noticed Manny getting a little fiery there. Don’t worry, he wasn’t actually mad. He gots nothin’ but love for everyone, as he made clear after the game: â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥"We're a team and we need to protect each other. I wasn't trying to get anybody. I was there just in case anything happened. I just wanted to go out there and protect my teammates. I don't fight nobody. I'm a lover." â†µâ†µAh, right. Certainly Manny was just out there fighting to get to the Phillies so he could whisper sweet nothings into their ears. Hopefully there'll be another dust up tonight (8:22, FOX) and Manny will get a second chance to show is love in a bench-clearing hugfest.â†µ
