Manny Sneaks In While Team Hits The Road

Well, Manny Ramirez decided to show up and do a little of that batting practice that Frank McCourt asked Manny to do…only he decided to do it (conveniently) while the team was on the road.

Huh?

I guess that’s better than nothing, but it speaks volumes about Manny’s interest in listening to the team and playing an appropriately active role while being suspended. Is taking batting practice and running the bases in Dodger Stadium (when no one is there) any better than staying away and continuing his regimen? I believe it’s actually worse, since he seems, more than ever, to be snubbing his teammates and the front office.

What’s the reaction of fans? To vote him into the All-Star game, of course! As of today, Manny is #4 in the voting with Where is Manny at in the voting with 1,213,423 votes. If he does end up getting sent to the All-Star game, can you imagine what his behavior will be like post-suspension?

I am bracing for the aftermath already…
