Looks like Manny Ramirez, who was selected for his 12th All-Star game today, will be headed to New York for the July 15th game. Ramirez has missed three of those prior 11 All-Star games.
“I think he’s going to be OK,” manager Terry Francona said. “I think he understands his responsibility and I think he feels OK about it. Now if he runs around second this week and looks like he got shot, that’s the way it is with anybody, but I think we’re in good shape.”
