Initial Manny comments

Former Red Sox left fielder Manny Ramirez was introduced to the Los Angeles media moments ago. Here are a few quotes from Ramirez from the telecast of his Dodgers press conference. The Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy is in Los Angeles and will have much more on Manny shortly.

  • “Boston is in the past. Every time people ask me about Boston, I put my brain on pause.”
  • On reports that veteran Red Sox players voted to trade Ramirez:

    “I’m not going to waste any energy when people talk like that. I want people to judge me on what I do here, not what I did in Boston.”

  • “I want to say something from the bottom of my heart. I want to thank all the fans in Boston. I love you guys. You guys have been with me through all the ups and downs.”
