It’s been a Mannyful day around here, so why not one more?
If fans are going to boo Manny as he plays in Boston this weekend, they’re going to have to do it when he bats because Joe Torre said that Ramirez will be DHing for the entire series with the Red Sox. He’ll be DHing for the the next series against the Angels too.
What, you were expecting Jamey Carroll?
Indians reliever Andrew Miller left last night’s game against the Cubs with left hamstring tightness.
Miller threw just two pitches before clutching his leg and leaving the field. He’s day-to-day for now — and manager Terry Francona noted that he had a similar injury a few years back and only missed a few days — but hamstring injuries can be anywhere from annoying to serious, so nothing definitive will be said by the club until he undergoes an MRI. Given how critical he is to the Indians, who are likely postseason bound, figure that the team will err on the side of caution with a DL sting regardless.
Miller has yet to allow a run in ten innings of work.
