Wow. Don't ever call him that again, "Man Ram"? "ARam" is bad enough, "IRod" is a reach... but... "Man Ram"? Sweet Moses man, no. :-t

Man Ram is actually quite commonly used for Manny. Same goes for ARam and IRod. ;-)

Who started this nickname trend anway? It's incredibly lame. :-t

I bet it was A-Rod. :-b

First time I saw it was with T-Mac, back in his Raptor days. I still remember all the signs that lined the ACC in his final few games: "Come Back T-Mac!". After that, EVERYBODY was going by that standard nickname format.

Andy Roddick has even gone by A-Rod a couple times that I saw him on TV.

"Jack, will you call me, if you're able?"

A question for everyone. Everyone gives Manny props every year for his huge offensive numbers. Then how come he is never drafted in the 1st round? I make it point to pick him every year. I have had him on my teams for three years and he just rakes. Yet I picked him up in the 2nd round of my roto league and the third round on my H2H. Just curious... ;-)

LCBOY, he went in the 1st round of the 3 leagues I participate in. :-)
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
