Boston Red Sox slugger Manny Ramirez, known for most of his career as a defensive liability, would like to win a Gold Glove. There’s only one glitch. Manager Terry Francona wants to win ballgames.
“How am I going to win a Gold Glove if they take me out in the eighth?” the the Red Sox left fielder has been ‘joking’ since he was removed for defensive replacement Jacoby Ellsbury on Friday night against the Twins.
Then, the ultimate blasphemy:
“I think I’m the best ever to play left field in Boston.”
Umm…Yaz? You out there, dude?
Keep blazin’ away, Manny.
