My main focus, like I say, is getting prepared for the season to help Boston win. I'm here. I don't live in the past, I live in the present.
I especially like the attention, I know that I'm one of the top guys in this game and all the attention is on me, I got a lot of people on my shoulder, but I'm human. I like to go. I like to have fun. I like to do this and that but I got to represent Boston and the Red Sox in every way that I do outside this game.
I got a beautiful career going on and I'm not going to let little things like this mess all the things that I accomplished because I think when I finish my career I'm going to be a special player.
I'm not ready, so I'm not going to go out there and make a fool of myself."-- Manny Ramirez 3/1/06
