Manny Ramirez, in five minor league games split between Albuquerque and Inland Empire (San Bernardino) chose not to buy the spread for either his Isotopes or 66ers teammates.
The above tidbit came in the form of a rumor spread among visiting scouts Monday night at John Thurman Field and confirmed Tuesday by a member of the Inland Empire front office staff.
That's disappointing. I was hoping Manny was just being dense and forgot about the tradition of major leaguers buying the post-game meal for their minor-league teammates, but the article specifically states he "chose not to buy." The good news is that Manny has the rest of the season to retroactively rectify this oversight.
