Manny just being ............ a little too Manny

Now I know Manny is just Manny, but when is it too much Manny.  First the altercation with Kevin Youkilis and now shoving Jack McCormick to the ground because Manny decided he needed 16 tickets the day of the game.  First to push an old man down is absolutely ridiculous.  Second, why did he wait so long to even ask.  The problem is the Red Sox have allowed his antics for so long he feels he is untouchable.  If I was the Red Sox I would sit him down for 3 games.  I would also seriously think about picking up his 20 million dollar option for next year.  There are other players who have comparable stats and that will give you a 100% without the distractions and with better leadership (Matt Holiday maybe).  I just dont think the sox orginization can just give him a slap on the wrist.  It sends the wrong message that this type of behavior will go unpunished
