HOMECOMING DATE: Damon: 5/1/2006; Manny: 6/18/2010
COMPLEX SAYS: Damon (and Roger Clemens before him) committed the ultimate traitorous act by becoming a Yankee, and thus incurred the stinging wrath of the Fenway faithful upon his return. Years later, Red Sox Nation expressed years of simmering frustration at Manny when he came back to Boston as a Dodger. Nothing too vitriolic in either case, though Damon did get a cool shirt made in his honor: “Damon: Looks like Jesus, Acts like Judas, Throws like Mary.” Priceless.
