Quickpoll: Manny on the spot?
Should Manny sit for Johnny?
Yes, when Manny gets voted onto the All-Star team, he should pass on the game, free up the AL outfield spot for Damon, and rest his injured finger for the second half drive.
No, Manny had a monster first half before he got hurt and deserves to play in that game. If he's good enough to play for the Red Sox, he's OK for the All-Star game. I'm sorry if Johnny Damon doesn't get on the team again no matter how incredible he has been.

Is it appropriate for Nixon to let the fans know how he feels about situations like Manny's late arrival?
Yes, the Red Sox need a leader, and Trot
should let us know how he feels when someone is not on the same page as the rest of the team, who planned ahead and arrived on time.
No, it was only the first day of spring training, as long as Manny shows up for the games and hits the ball. I don't care what he does. Trot should not have spoken up.
