Not that we haven’t got enough already, mind you, but this gem was buried in today’s Globe’s Red Sox Notebook:
Manny Ramírez, meanwhile, spent a couple of minutes in the clubhouse trying to convince reporters the Sox should trade Tavarez for one of Milwaukee’s sausages, the stars of the race that occurs prior to every seventh inning in Miller Park. That was after he announced that Tavarez should be traded to Tampa Bay.
Please tell me that someone caught this on tape or video so that we, the plebians, might experience it as well. In fact, it should be a tenet of Sox Media Training 101 that anytime anyone speaks of “sausages” and “Julian Tavarez” in the same sentence, cameras must be rolling.
Also, there was a game last night.
