Dodgers 6, Padres 3… Manny returns to Boos and Cheers!

After taking nearly two months off work, Manny Ramirez punched the clock again Friday night as the Dodgers went on the road to face division rival San Diego. By the sound of the crowd when he was introduced over the loud speaker, it seemed like a number of Dodger fans made the drive down I-5 with the team.

As for the Manny of the hour, he apologized to his fans before the game and fared about as well as could be expected during it… 0 for 3 with a walk. His presence, however, had a big impact on his fellow teammates. The offensively challenged Dodgers rattled off 5 runs in the first, in large part to Manny’s presence in the 3 spot of the line up. So even if he didn’t light it up at the plate, he clearly still makes everyone around him better.

Also, kudos to Tim Wakefield for breaking the record of most starts by a Boston pitcher. By taking the mound Friday night against the Mariners, Wakefield surpassed Roger Clemens with 383 starts, and only trails the Rocket’s win total by 18 games.

Hey Roger, how about a knuckle sandwich?
