Last week pitcher Shawn Chacon grabbed Astros general manager Ed Wade by the neck and threw him to the ground. Chacon's punishment? Booted off the team.
Saturday Manny Ramirez pushed Red Sox traveling secretary Jack McCormick to the ground:
Manny Ramirez has apologized for pushing the team's traveling secretary to the ground in the visitors clubhouse during a confrontation Saturday in Houston, according to a report in The Providence Journal.
Ramirez had requested 16 tickets from Jack McCormick for Saturday's game against the Astros, the report said.
After McCormick said that might not be possible, Ramirez replied by yelling, "Just do your job," according to Monday's report.
Manny's punishment? Nothing. Oh, that silly Manny! Playful yet smart enough to restrict his assaults to lower-level employees.
