Iron Manny Has Some Dents: Sox Slugger Leaves Game With Balky Knee

"His right knee is really bothering him, and I guess it's not surprising. Anytime you're battling a hammy with a knee problem, it directly affects that. He didn't want to come out, but it was grabbing at him. So we're going to take him and get him checked out a little more extensively in the morning.

"We just want to get some better answers and make sure he's OK before we run him back out there. When you're on the road, you're a little bit at the mercy of the other team. But they're pretty helpful." -- 8.23.06, Terry Francona on the gritty Manny Ramirez
