Casey Blake reacts to Manny

A few quotes from Casey Blake, courtesy of the Associated Press

“He knows he made a mistake. I forgive him. It’s his business.”

“I don’t think anyone was really looking for (an apology). It was something he wanted to do and I think it was heartfelt.”

“I think in Manny’s case, it made him feel better just to get in front of the team. I think it was kind of a big load off his shoulders just to greet the team again.”

“He was a guy concerned about his team and his teammates. I know he feels bad. Everyone knows how he’s feeling. It was just nice to see him again and I think it was nice for him to see us again.”

Also, according to the AP, “Ramirez spoke for a few minutes, and teammates — other than greeting him and shaking his hand — did not ask any questions, said Blake, who declined to say what words Ramirez specifically used during his address to the Dodgers.”

    It doesn’t really matter what Manny said. That’s clubhouse business anyway. I’m just glad he finally had the opportunity to meet with his teammates and let them know they’re behind him.

    Like PhillyDodger, I also attended yesterday’s game. Although Broxton blew the save, his stuff was just filthy to the first couple of batters he faced. Ethier’s walk last night was the story of the ball game. Looking forward to a W tonight vs the Fins.
