Coco Being Manny: It's Deja Vu 2002 All Over Again
Bob Ryan, Boston Globe: "Has the organization put in a policy that says absolutely no head first sliding?"
Theo Epstein, Red Sox GM: "It's absolutely been discussed, it gets covered in drills, but (his sliding is) it's instinct, Manny is trying to get there as quick as possible. Trust me, we were scared when we heard the report."
Bob Ryan: "When will they teach these guys in Gulf Coast League that it's not OK to do this. When will they be taught to slide right."
Theo Epstein: "Well.... it's starting already. We're working on it." -- 6.19.2002, 1510 The Zone
