In this case, the Red Sox players in question actually ARE the fine wines- all in the name of charity. Manny may be crazy, Schilling may be difficult (if you’re not reading his blog, you should be- I actually kind of like him now)- but for some reason I think a glass of “Manny Being Merlot” or “Schardonnay” would be strangely satisfying. And I’m sure there’s a wicked aftertaste.
Now where are the hottie wines? I’d pay top dollar for a bottle of Jacoby Ellsbury, Javier Lopez or Kyle Jackson. And you can’t tell me a Dice-K Gyrowürztraminer wouldn’t be a big hit.
