Manny Ramirez met briefly with the media a few minutes ago at Dodger Stadium. Here are some highlights:
On playing his first game in Los Angeles since the suspension:
I’m excited. These are the best fans in the world. I’m ready.
It will be the same ovation as when I came from Boston. Maybe better.
On the Dodgers:
We have unfinished business. We are trying to win the World Series. I like to compete. I like the attenton. It makes me want to do better.
The team doesn’t depend on me. We’ve got great players. Juan Pierre is a great player.
These are the best teammates I’ve ever had. I love these guys. We care about each other. We pick each other up and that’s the way the game is supposed to be play.
On next year:
I’m going to think about today. Everything will work out.
