Manny Ramirez sits out

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Manny Ramirez has a sore right knee and isn't in the lineup on Wednesday. Jacoby Ellsbury is in left field in his place.

Manager Terry Francona said the soreness in Ramirez's knee is something that came up out of the blue.

Ramirez had an icebag on his knee in the Red Sox clubhouse before the game, he demonstrated that there is nothing wrong with his voice, singing along to music from his iPod. He even had the theatrics down, rolling up a magazine and singing into it as if it were a microphone. He even asked for a little help, asking me if I spoke Spanish (the language the lyrics were in).

"Un poco," I said.

Well, he tilted the magazine/mic out for me to join in. One problem. No idea on the lyrics, however, the chorus included the word "todo" on an extended hold. I was able to chime in for at least a second.

That's an awfully big limb to project the M's will score a run. I'm not that bold.
