Actually, That Was Danny Ramirez In The Clubhouse Yesterday

One day after Manny stopped by the Dodgers clubhouse to chat with his teammates and face the press, MLB has come out and wagged its finger in disapproval:

The Dodgers have been warned by the commissioner's office to keep Manny Ramirez out of their clubhouse before games so long as he is suspended, club spokesman Josh Rawitch confirmed today.

Ramirez greeted teammates and spoke with reporters in the Dodgers' clubhouse before Tuesday's game. Players under suspension are not permitted to use the clubhouse during the media access period, which begins 3 1/2 hours before game time.

The Dodgers were not penalized for the violation. Rawitch said the Dodgers would adhere to the policy in the future.

The dreadlocks are a giveaway. Maybe Bobby Valentine can give Manny some pointers on how to be inconspicuous?
