    Default Manny Ramirez called 'cancer' by former teammate Papelbon

    The Red Sox closer is quoted in a magazine story saying that Boston had to get rid of Ramirez.

    NEW YORK -- Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon compared former teammate Manny Ramirez to cancer, saying Boston made the right decision when it traded the slugging left fielder to the Dodgers last summer.

    Everyone knew that already. Dodger fans will find out soon enough.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    Number of titles won by the Red Sox since 1918 with Manny: 2

    Number of titles won by the Red Sox since 1918 without Manny: 0

    Number of NLCS appearances by the Dodgers since 1989 without Manny: 0 in 18 tries.

    Number of NLCS appearances by the Dodgers since 2008 with Manny: 1 in 1 try.

    I'll take some of that cancer. As George Carlin said, "I'm an American, goddamnit, I expect a little cancer in my food and water."

    Of course he was a cancer... He wanted out year after year after year and they never moved him.

    Then again, he kept signing the contracts...

    It's just Manny being Manny being a jackass, and it's great to have him

    Papelbon is more-or-less an idiot, but he did spend four seasons sharing a locker room with Ramirez.

    BTW...

    I echo all the previous sentiments in this thread..What the hell does being the niceguy do for your team if you cant do jack? look at garciaparra he never actually even won a legit WS title. Not a knock on him since he happens to have been one of my favorite dodgers..."Cancers" have a knack for leading their teams on the field, just look at Jeff Kent and all the people that hate the guy, at the end of the day hes walking away with an automatic hall of fame nod and a trip to the WS. Not to mention he was here during our post season runs..
