Eventually I'll figure out why I keep buying tickets to sporting events in Anaheim when all I ever get out of them is heartbreak. But for the time being, man, I can be pretty stupid.

In other news, Manny Ramirez is hilarious.

Andrew(az): When can we expect Manny back and with what kind of production?

SportsNation Jayson Stark: It will definitely be sometime between tonight and Thanksgiving. I have no idea. They have no idea. Only Manny seems to have an idea. I was there over the weekend when he told them he was ready to go out on a rehab option, and they told him, "Hey Manny, the minor-league season ended two weeks ago. Where do you think you're going to rehab? Guam?" I say this often: Life on Planet Manny is different from life on our planet. But the Red Sox need this guy. You'd think he'd answer the bell already.

To everyone who claims that a successful baseball player needs to have otherworldly focus and concentration, I offer but a solitary counterexample.
