Eight-minute apology?

Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the Dodgers headed for the hotel lobby elevators — and their meeting with Manny Ramirez — just before 1 p.m. ET and returned eight minutes later.

    Oh boy…really?! Is he expected to give some sort of congressional address that lasts an hour? WHO CARES!

    “Hey Guyz…I’m sorry for letting you guys down…I’m very disappointed. I apologize to you, Mr. McCourt, Joe, the fans. I let everyone down including myself.”

    xoxo,

    Manny

    Here’s the applicable rule/guideline:

    “The expected duration of the apology is directly proportionate to the dollar amount of the contract.”

    A guy making the major league minimum can get by with a quick “Sorry, everybody.” But when you’re one of the two or three highest-paid players in the game, you’d better take enough time that an entire episode of “SportsCenter” or “Outside the Lines” covers it and nothing else.

    Why the question mark on the title here? Would fifteen-minute apology work better?
