Manny is Happy Again in Boston

Postby Rirruto » Sun Jul 31, 2005 1:12 pm

Manny Ramirez spoke to the Red Sox print media today at Fenway Park, telling the assembled reporters he is happy playing in Boston and wants to stay with the Sox, the Globe’s Gordon Edes reported. Ramirez also said he gets along with Terry Francona, and that, contrary to reports, he didn’t pull himself out of the Red Sox lineup last night. Francona is planning on keeping Ramirez out of today’s lineup as well.

Ramirez (along with Kevin Millar) had entered Francona’s office as reporters were talking with the Sox manager. Buckley said that Francona had planned to bring Ramirez into his office so the slugger could clear the air with the media.

The Providence Journal’s Sean McAdam called it “another bizarre moment in a week full of them.”

Whether he means it or not, he needed to say it. A trade is very unlikely at this point, so Ramirez is probably going to stick around until the offseason at least. As expected, Ramirez is out of the starting lineup for a second straight game today. He'll be back in left field on Tuesday.

If we've learned anything from all this, it's that Manny is still quite the oddball

It's got a much better effect when insulting someone's intelligence when you can spell correctly

Seriously though, the guy must have a screw loose. He has no idea what he's doing from one day to the next. Great ballplayer, serious issues upstairs.....

Take this for what it's worth. It's from Boston Dirt Dogs:

Sunday 7.31, Steve Buckley on WEEI’s The Baseball Show: “This is just for the print guys (today's pre-game meeting in Terry Francona’s office today)… Terry was talking about Papelbon (then) Kevin Millar burst in to the room lugging with him Manny Ramirez, said that Manny wanted to talk to the media, Kevin Millar acting as his spokesman of sorts, and then Terry interrupted Millar and Manny to say this was planned. Terry didn’t get a chance to broach the subject with Manny first but they had planned that Manny was going to come in to this room and talk to these writers and clear the air and that Terry didn’t want people to think that Manny was being dragged in here, they all agreed that this would be the thing to do… Manny said he wants to play for the Red Sox through the 2005 season, and I’m not suggesting that he doesn’t want to play here beyond. He says he’s happy here. He says that as far as the day off goes, he says that he was hurt, that he needed the day and so forth and there was some miscommunication and so forth. He made it abundantly clear, and Terry Francona said this, that he gets along with Francona, they have a working relationship. He said that he did not pull himself out of the lineup last night. This is counter affecting some of the things that had been said and written about Manny the last couple of days. Manny said that he is happy playing for the Red Sox, he wants to play with the team; he wants the team to go to the World Series. He says he’s not bothered by the booing from a couple of days ago. He says he has a good working relationship with Terry Francona. It’s as if a cloud has been lifted over Fenway Park."

Hey look, it looks like Manny's not the only who takes a piss in the Monster (from last night's game)

So everything is just fine and dandy in beantown with Manny? (response to the article, not you the poster) I'm not believing it.
