Manny Ramirez showed up at Red Sox training camp one day early, but looking extremely trim and sharp. (See Globe article.) It looks a bit to me like he's going to try to make up for the loss of Johnny Damon in center field -- catch photo #6 on the "Manny photos" page here.
A fitting day to bemoan the Red Sox blow-out in the series with the White Sox. However, there were some wonderful moments in the game, including the back-to-back home runs by Ortiz and Manny. At least everyone will be getting some sleep in October!
It's October, and it's Red Sox time again. It's looking like it won't be Red Sox time for long though, now that they're down two games in a three out of five series with the White Sox. We have a one night break, and then get to see whether their luck changes in Fenway Park. Go Sox!
