Do Sox fans boo Manny tomorrow night?

Jun 17, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

For the first time since his 2008 trade, Manny Ramirez will visit Fenway Park tomorrow night.  The Boston Globe asks this morning what kind of reception Hub fans will give the kid.

I’d like to think that Sox fans will take a reflective approach to it all, remember that if it wasn’t for Manny they wouldn’t have two World Series championships to celebrate and give him a nice respectful applause. That’s what Mooseinohio — a longtime reader and bigtime Sox fan — said he’d do if he were there:

Personally I would give him a nice golf clap out of respect for his time
in Boston and participate in a little mocking type
‘Manny…Manny’ the first time he makes an out or an error (just a
little bit of snarkiness to express frustration with his end of the bad
relationship with RSN).

Seems fair enough. But what with the PED suspension, the fact that he left in a cloud of controversy and all of that, you have to assume mostly boos, right?

Sox fans: would you boo Manny tomorrow not, and if so, why?

    I’m assuming the opposite. Fans loved Manny. It’s the media that has issues with him.

    He gets a round of applause, like any other returning player, then gets booed like anyone else.

    Well, Everywhere Manny goes he’s booed I thought……. Ya know, besides when they”re in Dodgerland and all.

    What, does a bear s–t in the woods? Heck, it’s 10:45am ET, they’re probably outside the hotel booing him already…

    Red Sox fans are a bunch of loud mouthed, classless, degenerates, so I wouldn’t expect anything less.

    He quit on his team and forced his way out of Boston in a way that would make even Nomar cringe. Boo away.

    An appropriate response would be to applaud for all he contributed, while at the same time boo for shutting down and pouting like he did – if that would be possible…

    I’m going on Saturday and I plan on cheering…

    I don’t think Nomar would cringe at a .926 OPS.

    I would absolutely cheer for him. Some damn good times with that crazy man.
