MANNY BEING MISSING
For most people, batting practice was the first time anyone saw Manny Ramirez during the All-Star festivities.
He blew off Monday's interview session at Yankee Stadium and he blew off Tuesday's Red Carpet Parade.
Did he have the same flu as Tim Lincecum? Did he lose track of time at Enrique Wilson's house?
I ask only because a little more than an hour before the parade was set to start, I ran into Manny on Fifth Avenue looking quite happy and healthy.
After we exchanged brief hellos, I walked one way and he went the other. Surprised? Didn't think so.
And this has been another episode of Manny Being Manny.
