Reports here in Boston indicate that the Red Sox will put Manny Ramirez in the lineup and if he asks out, he will be disciplined by the team. That could mean a suspension.
The general belief is that Manny is jaking his injury. The team had MRIs taken on both of knees yesterday before the game and made it a point to announce they were negative.
Trying to decide whether a player is faking an injury is tricky business, especially a guy like Ramirez. But the populace seems to have had it with Manny this time.
If he bags out today, it could be bloodier than The Departed.
