IMO, it's pretty clear now that the Manny's Job story was a rumor that somebody managed to get into the 24-hour loop. And, of course, once there, it doesn't go away. The leading rumor about the rumor -- and don't disproved rumors deserve to have their own rumors? -- is that Bowden was behind it in some way. Or Boras. Or Omar Minaya! Theory 1: Bowden may have felt that during the Dominican issues in February that Manny's connections worked against him, not for him. So, he got caught in the rumor mill and "resigned" in part because "the story wouldn't die." So, turns about is ... 2. Boras. Everything that upsets Natsville until August 17th with be attributed to him. I don't buy it, but.. 3. (You'll love this.) The Mets GM still wants Manny as his manager at some point, so why not help him out of the job now.Discuss amongst yourselves.
