For the second time this season, Manny Ramirez was involved in a physical altercation with a fellow member of the Red Sox organization. This time it was travelling secretary Jack McCormick.
Here's what happened:
Manny asked McCormick to get 16 tickets for Saturday night's game.
McCormick told Manny that he might not be able to get so many tickets on the day of the game.
They argued, Manny yelled "do your job!" and shoved McCormick.
Eventually, Manny apologized, and the matter was handled internally. Francona and the Red Sox plan on taking no disciplinary action.
But doesn't all of this seem tremendously out of character for Ramirez? First the incident with Youkilis, now this stuff? He's gone from someone who was relaxed, nonchalant, and cool as a cucumber; to Paul O'Neil. I'm not sure if I like it or not.
