Manny Ramirez arrived at the Red Sox camp this morning. A few hours later, he stepped into the batter's box against Daisuke Matsuzaka.
Extra Bases has several reports from this morning -- scroll down.
Manny is in camp a few days earlier than recent reports -- which is great -- but later than most of his teammates. How will he get ready in time for the season? He has only 34 days! He didn't swing at any of the three pitches he saw from Dice. Doesn't he care? He's way behind schedule. Our playoffs chances are surely doomed. Who will start in LF on Opening Day?
This is a huge problem. And the media seems to be ignoring it.
