Dodgers warned about Manny

That little impromptu Manny Ramirez media op in the clubhouse yesterday got the Dodgers in trouble with the baseball home office. The team was warned — without a fine — that Ramirez has to be finished with his workouts and gone before the media get access to the team 3½ hours before game time. He is suspended over his drug violations until July 3, but can work out when the stadium is closed to the public and media.
