“I think the way it turned out, it probably doesn’t look good,” said Manager Joe Torre. “But it’s nothing different than he has done before.“
That is true. During his parts of two seasons with the Dodgers, Ramirez has consistently showered and changed into street clothes immediately after coming out of the game.
He never leaves the clubhouse until the game is over, but he also never sticks around the dugout to watch and cheer.
“He’s a cool customer,” said Torre.
“As we say, Manny is Manny,” said Torre.
What a lame job by Torre. No wonder why “Manny being Manny” exists; he’s been enabled his whole career to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants, with little or no concerns.
