    Velcro Suit Man

    Super Manny Ramirez pulls off what can only be describe as a miraculous catch to rob Miguel Cairo of an apparent home run int the fifth. Cairo trotted the bases like he had gone yard only to find out one his way back to the dug out that the ball was in fact caught by Ramirez . The play by Ramirez was big when it happened but when the game ended in a 3-2 come from behind victory for the sox everyone realized just how big it really was.
    When you make a catch like that, man, it's better than when you hit a grand slam," Ramirez said. "You get so excited, it's unbelievable."

    Ramirez called the catch the best of his career and you won't hear any arguments from many people today. Manny who is known for his outfield and base running gaffs always atones himself with a great play sooner or later, but none greater than Friday nights. Plays like that have will bring Ramirez, usually only known as a DH type outfield, into consideration for a MVP award this year. Manny is having a career year as he leads the league in home runs and is third in runs batted in.
    "It would mean a lot because I already put up some awesome numbers for like six years. But it's up to you [writers]. I'm going to keep going and doing some damage and having fun."
