Nice to See Manny’s Head Is in the Game
Amongst the many knocks on Manny Ramirez are his lack of focus and his lack of effort on defense. I don’t think there’s a better example of these shortcomings than what Manny did in his Dodgers debut on Friday night against Arizona. It was the top of the third, and Randy Johnson led off the inning by flying out to Manny in left. To repeat, Randy Johnson was the first batter of the inning and had made an out. Check out how many outs Manny flashed to center fielder Andruw Jones after making the catch:
Thanks to commenter Gene for his sharp eye noticing that. And like I said, nice to see that Manny’s head is in the game. I guess just another example of Manny being Manny.
