Manny takes a seat

The Yankees are off tomorrow then open a three-game series in Boston on Friday. David Ortiz is expected back off his rehab. But will Manny Ramirez be there?

This from the AP:

Manny Ramirez was out of Boston’s lineup Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners with what his manager said was a sore knee.

“Just showed up this morning. He just came in and said, ‘My right knee hurts,’ ” manager Terry Francona said hours before the Red Sox went for a series sweep.

When asked if the slugger will be back for Friday’s opener against the New York Yankees at Fenway Park, Francona said, “I’m hoping it’ll be all right Friday. I don’t know. I don’t really have a good answer for that. I hope so.”

Ramirez said his knee has been bothering him for about a week.

“I’ve just been trying to play it out,” he said, while jokingly singing for tips at his locker in the clubhouse, with his I-Pod docked to a speaker and a cup out seeking donations from teammates. “I decided it was time to give it a rest.”

Asked if he would be ready for the Yankees, Ramirez said, “I don’t know. I’m day-to-day at this point.”
