'Meltdown Manny' on Pensacola Beach

The New Times of Broward County reports baseball superstar Manny Ramirez is in"training on Pensacola Beach." He's using the batting cages at Baptist Hospital's Andrews Institute -- basic medical equipment at every hospital, doncha' know -- and is sitting in hot tubs on the beach.

Apparently, he's also eating on the beach. The volatile slugger sometimes known as "Manny Meltdown" is so upset over stalled contract negotiations, sports gossips have it, that "he's taking it out on the wait staff of Flounder's Chowder House, where a server got what she described as a "mediocre" tip: $5 on a $40 to $50 bill."

The waitrees, Tosha Fraley, is no fool. She turned right around, made a photocopy of Ramirez' signed meal receipt, and sold "the original to another customer for $10."

Maybe Ramirez needs to re-think his recent change of agents. Tosha Fraley may have the wits and imagination it will take to improve on that one-year $25 million contract Ramirez just turned down.
