Remember that time Manny Ramirez executed the strangest (greatest) cutoff of all-time?
Working here at "Cut4," we understand that a relay from center field to home plate should involve the center fielder, an infielder (the "cut") and the catcher ("4"). Eleven years ago, there was an exception to that rule. That exception was a left fielder. That left fielder was Manny Ramirez.
Excellent effort. Unfortunately for Manny and the Red Sox, David Newhan ended up with an inside-the-park homer and the Orioles won the game, 10-5. Boston, however, would finish that year in pretty solid fashion.
Damon told NESN.com what he thought about the cutoff last year:
Happy anniversary, Manny. Damon may have gotten his revenge last season, but you did yours during an actual game!
