The Manny Ramirez Johnny Damon press conference

I mentioned this yesterday. It was entertaining enough that some of you may want to watch it.

Rays fans will think it’s funny up to the exact moment that the team starts losing or Manny creates some sort of turmoil.  At that point, they’ll never ever want to watch this video or be reminded of its contents again.

Prior to Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Giants, the Astros announced that outfielder Josh Reddick has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a leg infection. Outfielder Jake Marisnick has been recalled from Triple-A Fresno.

Reddick, 31, has only started two games in the last week due to the leg issue, so it makes sense that the Astros would simply put him on the DL to free up the roster spot. He’s hitting .227/.331/.409 with six home runs and 18 RBI in 154 plate appearances this season.

Marisnick, 27, put up a 1.014 OPS in 23 plate appearances with Fresno. His major league numbers this season are much less impressive, batting .141/.151/.282 in 87 trips to the plate.
