MANNY RAMIREZ A Jay-Walker. OH, THE HUMANITY!

What's next for Manny? This is from the Seattle Times, just this morning...

"Seems that Boston slugger Manny Ramirez was leaving the ballpark, with headphones on trying to look inconspicuous and quickly get away from the crowds still leaving the stadium. He started to cross South Royal Brougham Way, against the signals of a traffic cop who was directing pedestrians. The police officer demanded that Ramirez open his wallet and show identification. He warned him that he could face a $500 fine and possible arrest for disobeying a police officer.
It became clear to those watching that the policeman had no idea who Ramirez was. He didn't ask for an autograph or anything, but did ask Ramirez if he'd attended the game. After the brief lecture, and no argument from Ramirez, the police officer let him go with no further trouble."

Peter here, and I'm fairly certain, officer, that Manny DID attend the game. Manny was guilty of only trying to get out of the stadium area after the game...that's the only thing that jumps out at me. But Manny, if a policeman asks you to wait for the flow of traffic to be a friendly one, it's best to listen to him/her. I ran this story tounge-in-cheekly, just for giggles. Thanks...

And three straight over Seattle as moentum, AND a day off. They'll see Beckett and Lester and Wakefield......I think.
