Frank McCourt may own the Dodgers, but he is a Boston guy. He should have known better than to lay down with a dog like Manny Ramirez.
Bat in hand, Manny Ramirez strolled into the Dodgers’ clubhouse before Sunday’s game, looked at the lineup card and saw he was listed to play his normal position of left field for the first time this spring.
“Left field?” he said, tongue firmly in his cheek. “Are we trying?” Then he walked away and joked, “We’ll get ‘em tomorrow.”
Manny is expected to take the next week off.
