Manny Being Manny!

I guess when you have a guaranteed $20 million contract and a player option for next year it gives you a license to to anything that you want to your employers. While the Los Angeles Dodgers were being beaten by a Jimmy Rollins double on Monday night during game 4 of their series with the Philadelphia Phillies, left fielder Manny Ramirez, who had been removed for defensive purposes in the bottom of the ninth, was in the shower instead of being in the dugout supporting his team. Manager Joe Torre basically laughed off the incident saying that's Manny simply being Manny. It's amazing what you can get away with when you're a commodity that is able to generate dollars for an employer.

Ramirez, who was suspended earlier this year for steroid use is fortunate that next year of his contract is guaranteed. I'm sure the Dodgers would surely love to rid themselves of Manny being Manny at this point.
