This Is Good Manny News

FORT MYERS, Fla. --" Superstar slugger Manny Ramirez will not be with the Red Sox when they have their first full-squad workout on Thursday. But by rules of Major League Baseball's Collective Bargaining Agreement, Ramirez won't be late by the letter of the law when he does arrive.
The Red Sox and their left fielder came to a compromise, agreeing that Ramirez can report to camp on March 1, the day he must be there, according to the basic agreement between the union and the league.
Manager Terry Francona spoke with Ramirez on Monday night, and they decided it would be best for everyone for the left fielder to arrive on March 1."
***Peter here. This is good news because the drama is gone. He will be in camp, if only for a couple of days until the end of the WBC. Then he is ALL OURS, batting fourth.***
