If there was anyone still clinging to the image of Manny Ramirez as a lovable offbeat wacky guy, safe to say this latest bit of news will probably relieve them of that notion. Yesterday, he was arrested at his Florida home and charged with battery after a domestic dispute with his wife. It hasn’t been a banner year for Ramirez, and this is the least encouraging development yet.
