It didn't take long for Manny Ramirez -- a.k.a. Manny Being Manny -- to make his humorous mark in A's camp Friday. See the following tweet from injured A's pitcher Brett Anderson:


I'd say this easily qualifies as my favorite tweet of the year so far. Pure hilarity.

There is a huge age difference here, as Anderson is only 24 while Ramirez is 39. Still, Anderson has 62 major-league starts under his belt, so it's not like he's a rookie. Unfortunately, the two have never faced each other in a game, otherwise it would have been even funnier -- not that any extra humor is necessary.

Joeyusmc, I agree, but you forgot to list "and test positive late in the season."

The real joke is that a team still wants Manny.... He may just up and quit half way through the season if he is dissatisfied with the team.
