Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona steers clear of Manny Ramirez apology

  • Print

CLEVELAND - Indians manager Terry Francona isn't waiting for an apology from Manny Ramirez.

Francona guided Boston to two World Series titles during eight seasons, and the Red Sox played in Cleveland on Monday night. He was asked about comments Ramirez made last week during an event honouring the 2004 Red Sox, who won the franchise's first title since 1918.

Ramirez apologized for his sometimes bizarre behaviour in Boston, but came short of saying he was sorry for pulling himself from the lineup before a game in 2008.

Francona didn't want to get drawn into a controversy and said he was happy Ramirez "is in a good place."

Francona said Ramirez "for the most part, was a really lovable guy." Francona added that "sometimes we bumped heads."

Ramirez attended last week's event in Boston. Francona he was invited, but was busy managing.

Ramirez is now a player-coach in the minors for the Chicago Cubs.
