Jerry Manuel says what he thinks. Every time. Without fail. (Hence the Manuel’s Musing.)
Yesterday we heard Manuel compare Ryan Church to David Wright. Wright, Manuel said, “is made up a little different” than Church.
Current player, ex-player or anyone at all shouldn’t have to hear this from a manager’s mouth. Maybe a player after a plunking or bushleague play, but a manager should keep his trap shut unless it’s entirely necessary. And this was far from it.
Manuel keeps people on the edge of their seat with what he’s going to say next, but this was a little too far. He needs to think about his words might mean to someone else before he blurts it out.
Still, he’s always entertaining.
