Manny Being Manny on Taiwan Plans
The Dodgers will soon announce their travel roster for next month’s goodwill trip to Taiwan and Manny Ramirez won’t be on it.
But he could be on the trip. He’s told club officials he’s thinking about going. He’s also told club officials he’s thinking about not going. Club officials don’t know what to think.
Manager Joe Torre said he wouldn’t discourage Ramirez — or any of his regular players — from going.
Early commitments have been received from James Loney, Jamey Carroll, Ronnie Belliard, Eric Stults and native Taiwanese Hong-Chih Kuo and Chin-lung Hu. — Ken Gurnick
