Manny says team has no reason to panic

From the AP on the MSN site:

With the Red Sox just one loss from elimination, the star slugger was asked about Game 5 of the AL Championship Series against Cleveland.

"Why should we panic?" he said Wednesday in a rare clubhouse interview. "We've got a great team."

And then, this: "It doesn't happen, so who cares? There's always next year. It's not like it's the end of the world."

Gotta love Manny. He isn't afraid to tell it like it is. To be himself. It isn't the end of the world. For the fans who live and breath the Sox, get a life. For the players, we've known all along, just like Justin Timberlake, Madonna, and Mick Jagger, you're all just a bunch of entertainers who get paid a helluva lot of money. Instead of strutting the stage, you strut the ballfield. It isn't mom and apple pie anymore, and probably never was. That's marketing. That's branding.
