Future Teammates? Manny and Alex Have a Conversation By the Batting Cage

"We have run into bumps in the road ever since I've been here. The result, two of the times, has been a World Series ring, so as a team, sometimes you fight through things. Sometimes you work through things. It's not always perfect, but how you get to the end is what counts, and that's what we're trying to do." -- 7.26.08, Terry Francona on Manny drama
