Ramirez Arrives, Sidesteps Questions

Manny Happy Returns?

"I like to do this and that but I gotta represent Boston and the Red Sox in every way that I do outside this game. ... Like I said I get paid to play baseball no [matter] where I go to play I still gotta go and perform even if I like it or not." -- Manny Being Manny

"Oh yeah you know I’m back, I guess people want me to come back and my main focus is baseball right now and trying to help this team win and let me get this straight, I don’t want no question about the trade rumors about the winter this and that. You guys want to talk about baseball or whatever, you know I’m open to talk. We could talk all day.

"I’m here. I don’t live in the past, I live in the present and that’s it. This [is] a new year, I’m here. People want me to come back. People want me here so we’re just gonna move on. I’m just gonna come, do my job, I get paid to play baseball. That’s [why] I’m here. That’s it. What else can I say?"

Are you happy to be playing for the Boston Red Sox?

"I’m here. I’m here."

Are you going to play in the World Baseball Classic?

"Nah. I’m not playing. My main focus is getting prepared for the season. That’s my goal right now and that’s what I’m gonna do."
-- 3.1.06, Manny Ramirez (Read the complete comments from Manny's media Q&A)
