Manny Ramirez spent eight years in Boston and helped end the 86-year World Series drought, but after his trade to the LA Dodgers on July 31st, 2008, neither side has wanted anything to do with the other. Manny returned to a mixed reaction of cheers and boos, in an anticlimactic, 1-for-5, first game back at Fenway. The following night, however, he turned back the clock, singling and then stealing second base before scoring on a Garret Anderson single in the second inning, and launched a home run over the Monster in the sixth.
