It is starting earlier than usual :tongue:
He not reporting to camp until March 1 and it appears he is blowing off the WBC too


The enigmatic left fielder, according to multiple sources, informed the team that once he reports to camp, he intends to stay, meaning his participation next month in the World Baseball Classic for his native Dominican Republic is unlikely. Ramirez is on the Dominicanís provisional 60-man roster, which must be pared to 30 on March 2, when the players are due to report to Orlando for workouts. It doesnít appear that Ramirez will be there.

Seriously? No fines? Nothing? Just letting it go without a valid excuse?

If PK tried to pull this, he would be the next target of Ozzie's rampage.
