RED SOX VS. ATHLETICS, 7 P.M. (http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/extras/extra_bases/)
Manny's back (http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/extras/extra_bases/)

Manny Ramirez returns to the lineup today with a strained left oblique. He will be hitting second against the A's.

meanwhile Schilling blogs that the season is a grind (http://38pitches.com/2007/09/23/one-celebration-down-4-to-go/)

If you get to the dance and play all the way through you pretty much play close to 200 games in about 225 days. Most of those off days are spent traveling or at the park receiving treatment or working on your swing or something. Deion Sanders and Brian Jordan, both All Pro NFL players and damn good major leaguers said that the ML season and the NFL season werenít even close. The MLB schedule was 10 times the grind of the NFL schedule. Itís not any one thing, but the fact is, aches, pains and bruises aside, you suit up every single day and compete against the best players in the world once every twenty four hours.

Donít take that as a whine, itís not life or death, but for the guys suiting up every day it has to be incredibly tough physically, to be good.

Here's a little good news to sprinkle over your morning corn flakes:
Manny's back.
And here's another news flash for you all:
Manny can still hit.

Funny thing is NOBODY in Boston knows Manny off the field. He has done ONE TV interview since he has been here ( with Joe Morgan on ESPN ) and that is when he said he wants to play for the Yankees.

Still Boston can not win without him....

He is my least favorite player outside of Barry Bonds. Zambrano ranks a not so distant third.

My fantasy team thanks your piece of **** ass. Losing by 1 HR and a few RBI's. HMMMM I wonder if you could have helped me out instead of being a *****.

I hope it comes out that he was putting the finishing touches on the wine label's design while not playing this month. That would, I think, be the most hilarious possible outcome.

I don't understand why you guys dislike Manny. I was hating the Red Sox even before it was the cool thing to do, but Manny is absolutely hilarious, and baseball would be a less interesting sport without him. He's like an artist, and the entire world is his canvass.
