Manny Ramirez forgets that there are 9 innings to the game

Manny Ramirez went 2 for 3 with 2 RBI’s last night in the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-6 win over the Phillies. That was great and all, but the story I am interested in is how he thought Joe Torre took him out of the game early.

“After Ramirez was forced out at the plate in the eighth inning, Torre pointed to him from a distance as a way of congratulating the slugger for his single. But Ramirez thought that meant he was being taken out of the game for defense, so he headed up the tunnel.”

When Manny finally realized that he was suppose to be back on the field, he jogged back on the field with his shirt undone and said, “I just went to the bathroom.” I miss this guy and his antics in Boston.
