It's no fun rooting for Manny Ramirez any more. I do believe in redemption, and in forgiveness, but after Manny's 50-game suspension and no public evidence of apology, I just don't have the heart to root for him to be a hero, like I did last year. It's like with my formerly beloved Redskins, I don't have the heart to cheer for a sack by the guy who intentionally stepped on another players face wearing cleats.
Winning would be nice, but I can't quite identify with Manny or with Albert Haynesworth, or with the teams they play for.
