So pretty much everyone has shown up at the Red Sox Spring Training camp in Fort Meyers, except the highest paid guy on the team.

Yup, Manny is being Manny again.

The reports are that his mother just had surgery. It's understandable that he would want to be with her, but Julian Tavarez was quoted as saying that it didn't have anything to do with his mother. Manny just didn't feel like showing up until the mandatory reporting date, which is March 1.

I'm not surprised by this - nothing Manny does surprises me any more. It's just strange how Red Sox Nation lets Manny off the hook for this stuff. Pedro shows up a few days late or Clemens runs with his headphones on in the outfield, and the fans kill them for it. It just seems that Manny can do no wrong.

40 homers and 120 RBI make up for a lot of things, but in year 7 of the Manny era, his act is starting to get a little old for me.
