The veteran shortstop played his first Grapefruit League game at first base and made two dazzling, hit-saving plays in the third inning."- Los Angeles Daily NewsAGENT-SPEAKManny's Mouthpiece Says Trade Was Team's Idea:"I think it's been mis-characterized all along. I think it's been a situation over the last few years where the Red Sox have wanted to pursue trade alternatives, just to kind of see what's out there, and Manny has always been willing to participate in those kind of talks and he'd been willing to keep an open mind and cooperate if the Red Sox decide they want to have trade discussions with another team. "-Manny's Spin Doctor Greg GenskeHUB BUB:Over the winter, several sources in the organization indicated that Ramirez asked to be traded at least once during each of his first five seasons in Boston. http://newenglandsportshub.blogspot.com/googleed87b46dfef1b471.htmlSorry...BoomerPadres unlikely to add pitching(The San Diego Union-Tribune)"I don't know if our two organizations match up. We really haven't had any discussions about Boomer since January. It doesn't look like he'll probably pitch in a game until the middle of March."- Padres G.M. Kevin Towers Wells will have to continue to work the buffet...uhmm...exercise bike in the Ft. Myers facilityOne Padres player the Red Sox inquired about this past offseason was leadoff man Dave Roberts, who two years ago became a catalyst in Boston's run to the World Series title. Towers has said he will keep Roberts, who was among the best leadoff men in the majors who made at least 400 plate appearances last year. Further, when the Padres and Roberts agreed to a one-year guarantee in December, Roberts received assurances that the club would retain him through at least June, said the player's agent, John Boggs."We have a verbal understanding that they won't trade him or think about trading him until the (July 31st) trading deadline. I've got a verbal understanding with Kevin Towers that Dave won't be traded . . . unless somebody wants him at the trading deadline. I'm under the understanding that won't change."-"The Stealer's" agentOf course they meant it at the time. It sounds like the Padres won't part with much to acquire Wells at this juncture, and will wait for him to disrupt the Sox clubhouse enough that he is handed to them.THE MANNY CAMSpring Training 2006 EditionThe Press BriefingRicky Williams RamirezA Manny Ortez To You John "Carrie"And, last but certainly not least, who can forget that Enrique Ritz is in camp...Dude, Where's My Bar???MANNY UNHAPPY RETURNSRed Sox Spring Training EditionRed Sox Hub Presents:Cliff Claven's Useless facts...Or are they just so titillating you feel McFilthy?Manny showed up in 2006 wearing the same Tim Brown Raiders jersey that he wore following the White Sox sweep of the Red Sox in the 2005 ALDS...Are you happy to be playing for the Boston Red Sox?

His excuse for showing up to camp late was that he wanted to finish his offseason workout program; He declared himself in the best shape of his career, yet said that he was out of the World Baseball Classic because he wasn't ready and didn't want to embarass himself...Too late.
