Over the years there have been plenty of Manny being Manny stories to describe the quirky behavior of new Oakland Athletics designated hitter Manny Ramirez. Whether it be random quotations or bizarre antics, it has always made for good press.
Well, Manny is off to a solid start on his first day in A's camp courtesy of pitcher Brett Anderson...
Manny just asked if I was the video coordinator...our relationship can only go up from here.— Brett Anderson (@BrettAnderson49) February 24, 2012
While it is entirely possible Brett Anderson is making a joke, I have to think he is serious, and I am perfectly content t enjoy Manny being Manny on day one in such a harmless way. Although, if Anderson was in his uniform when this happened, it would make it all the better.
It is safe to say the Manny Ramirez era could be a fun one in Oakland.
