Manny Ramirez, in terms of temperament, has nearly always been on the easygoing side. It isn't surprising, then, to hear him sound content with his decision to retire from baseball. From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer's Dave Skretta:
"I'm at ease," Ramirez told ESPNdeportes.com by phone from his home in Miami. "God knows what's best (for me). I'm now an officially retired baseball player. I'll be going away on a trip to Spain with my old man."
As usual, it doesn't sound as though Manny is apathetic or dismissive... those descriptors don't quite hit the mark. Simply enough, he sounds genuinely content. Whether the rest of us our content with his retirement and the circumstances surrounding it is, of course, a different question entirely.
