This might be a bit more than simply the “Manny being Manny” sort of thing that Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez is well-known for at this stage. According to the PROVIDENCE JOURNAL’S SOXBLOG, the slugger got into a bit of a disagreement with a team traveling secretary over ticket allotment.
(Ramirez, making better use of his hands.)
Ramirez made a request for 16 tickets to last Saturday’s game in Houston to traveling secretary Jack McCormick, and that’s when the apparent incident began.
WPVI sports anchor Keith Russell either has already made room for his local news Emmy on his mantle next to his co-rec flag football trophy or the man has flat gone off the reservation.
Russell went on WQAM radio in Miami and made the less-than-compelling case that Marvin Harrison barely avoided a “hit” on his life by the man that was eventually shot by a mystery person using Harrison’s gun. (More on that later.)
The action wasn’t taken by the Balding Wide Receiver Mob to prevent him from rolling on Art Monk. For reasons yet unexplained, Harrison’s incarcerated father earned the violent action for his son.
