Will Our Model Citizen Be Going for the Gold?

"Asked the boss this morning to alert our convoy of writers in Turin to keep their eyes peeled for a certain Dominican-born cleanup hitter. David Ortiz, in camp today, says he hasn't talked to his fellow countryman in a few weeks. But, at the time, Ortiz said Manny Ramirez claimed to be headed to Italy for a vacation beginning tomorrow.

"'I talked to Manny a few weeks ago and he was going to Italy tomorrow,' Ortiz said with a hearty laugh. 'He said he was going there. He probably was just [kidding]. He's not going to be here on Tuesday. How you going to be there Monday, the day before [you come here]? Is it going to be roundtrip, the same day?'" -- 2.19.06, Chris Snow, Extra Bases blog
