Godspeed Manny

Manny Ramirez, at age 44, is attempting a comeback in Japan.

Coincidentally, a Japanese version of my Trump poetry book is now selling there.

In a perfect world, I'd get Manny to autograph it.

At Fenway, when Manny dogged it and took himself out of a game due to some phantom leg injury, the Boston faithful said, "It's just Manny being Manny."

In Japan, if he pulls a similar stunt, they will say, "Most honorable sir, the only way for you to retrieve the honor of the owners of the Nippon Ham Fighters is retire to a less-frequently-used part of the stadium, and solemnly perform the ritual self-disembowelment known here as Seppuku. Your tantō awaits."

The Flashcubes are HUGE in Japan (HUGER THAN FUCILLO!). Duque could be next. I foresee a spring tour with Duque reading Trump poetry in Japanese, with Sheer Mag opening. Arigato! Arigato!

Yeah! I can see it now: Domo Arigato, Harty-San!! Ichi-ban. You only have permission to go, though, if you promise to get Otani to come over & sign with us. Think of it: maybe the Japanese will put your picture on the side of a JET!! Way cool....LB (No J)
