Manny Ramirez is coming to the Swingin' A's? With being much older and with much less testosterone, I've decided to call him "Granny." And yes, living east of both San Francisco and Oakland means that Oakland has the closest ML team to my place. So, I'll endeavor to attend a few A's games and see Manny, my seven year old's birthday and Christmas card money saved to buy Giants tickets notwithstanding.
It is a low risk move by Guillermo Frijole, even with the 50 game suspension to be served out of the green and gold. And I can't wait to see if Manny will wear a green bandana or a gold one. Maybe he'll wear both, alternating the complimentary color matched with the uniform color. And I would die laughing if he led the Athletics to a World Series title, even though I would accept it.
Let's see what excitement he will bring to the city by the other side of the bay.
