Earlier this afternoon, the Marlins were said to be holding a slim chance of pulling off a trade for Manny Ramirez.

The Palm Beach Post is reporting that a tentative three-way deal has been reached between the Red Sox, Marlins and Pirates and after Manny's comments from earlier today, it's not hard to see why Boston might have been forced to commit to a trade that might bring only Pittsburgh's Jason Bay plus unproven prospects in exchange for Ramirez's Hall of Fame talent.

From ESPNDeportes:

"The Red Sox don't deserve a player like me," Ramirez said. "During my years here, I've seen how they [the Red Sox] have mistreated other great players when they didn't want them to try to turn the fans against them.

"The Red Sox did the same with guys like Nomar Garciaparra and Pedro Martinez, and now they do the same with me. Their goal is to paint me as the bad guy," Ramirez added. "I love Boston fans, but the Red Sox don't deserve me. I'm not talking about money. Mental peace has no price, and I don't have peace here."

And based on the comments of some Red Sox fans, apparently what Manny is saying is somewhat true or...the Red Sox fans are just tired of his "Manny being Manny" ways.
Here are some of the comments made by Red Sox fans about Manny..

"Manny could never fill the shoes of carl yazstremski, ted williams or even gene stephens in the hearts of red sox nation. good-bye manny. thanks for the thrills. oh, and before you clean out your locker don't forget the folks on $12,000 yearly incomes who coughed up the money to buy a ticket to watch you make an ass of yourself. you are a disgrace to the red sox uniform and to the human race." - John K.

"yeah they need to trade his crying ass......I love this guy, as a hitter I think he is one of the best, but the whining needs to stop...TRADE HIS ASS!!!!!!!!" - E N
