Day 2 of Manny and the Isotopes

Jun 25, 2009, 11:39 AM EDT

Manny Ramirez played his second game at Triple-A last night, going 0-for-1 with a walk before exiting after four innings in what ended up being a rain-soaked 15-inning marathon.

Ramirez walked on four pitches to lead off the game and then grounded
out to shortstop in his second plate appearance, making him 0-for-3
with a walk through two games with Albuquerque.

He’s scheduled to play seven innings there today before moving on to
Single-A Inland Empire, where he’ll play as many as four more games
leading up to his July 3 return from suspension.

“I’m getting ready to play the game physically and mentally,”
Ramirez said. “The first thing is getting my legs ready to play. I have
to get used to the speed of games. I didn’t play for a long time.”

So far Ramirez has missed 43 of a scheduled 50 games, with the
Dodgers going 26-17 (.605) in his absence while extending their lead in
the NL West from 6.5 games to 7.5 games. You know, just like we predicted.

    @Marco I know what your saying there . In the current economy its hard to find a company to work for that pays good and is consistent. I have discovered that if you just work hard and are consistent you can succeed. Look at the author of this page , they are clearly hard working and have just been consistent over time and are now enjoying at least what would appear as somewhat of a success. I would encourage everyone to just keep hustling and moving forward.
